What Moon Dog World will look like once it reopens

Moon Dog World celebrates its first birthday on October 4 in lockdown, but the team at Moon Dog have used their creativity to bring the playful pub experience to us at home. 

While we can’t laze by the bright blue lagoon with an ice-cold pot of Lagoona Matata Sour Ale in hand, we can instead opt to enjoy a series of their beers at home. Play bartender with your housemate, pop one of Moon Dog’s bar mats onto your dining table and crack open a variety of their tinnies which come in the Pub in a Box.

Complete the experience with some of Moon Dog’s “drinking food” and order pork or tofu bao, buttermilk fried chicken ribs, buffalo cauliflower, a chicken or eggplant parma and crinkle-cut chips via Mr Yum.

“One of the biggest things that our team came up with was the Spring Box, and that comes with some fantastic beers and you get a planter,” says Karl van Buuren, co-founder of Moon Dog. The Moon Dog Spring Box comes with a range of 15 limited and core release beers and a DIY Kokedame Kit from Leaf and Bear, which is otherwise known as the ‘poor man’s bonsai’.

“Our team has been working hard to keep everything running and the ideas flowing,” he says. “Since day one our thing has been to always have a bit of fun and make our products accessible and inclusive. It’s to expand people’s ideas of what beer is and gives them an excuse to try something new. 

“In the midst of a pandemic and lockdown, that kind of attitude is more important than ever. When you’re looking at things that are doom and gloom, having a message from a local business and a company like us is all about fun and keeping that

Mum who couldn’t find liners for her bathroom bin uses DOG POO bags & they’re saving her a packet in the process

TAKING the bins out is never a fun job but someone has to do it – and sort through the recycling too. 

One mum recently upgraded her bathroom bin, but couldn’t find a bag to fit in after browsing through a few shops, and she didn’t fancy tipping out the rubbish into the main bin. 

The mum decided to splash out on a new bin but couldn't find any bags which fitted it

But she had the bright idea of using dog poo bags instead, which she says fit the bin perfectly. 

She shared her tip to Facebook group Money Saving Hints, Tips and Ideas, claiming the switch has also saved her a fortune. 

She wrote: Bought a new caddy bin for my bathroom and cant find any bin bags small enough to fit. 

“I tried a doggy poo bag and it’s a perfect fit..

“You can buy a pack of 4 rolls for around £1.00 and a bargain too.”

Hundreds of people liked her idea, with some mums admitting they use nappy bags instead. 

One mum admitted: “Ha, that’s what I use.”

Fellow parents thanked her for the tip - with some admitting they use nappy bags

While this person added: “I do the same but use nappy bags. Cheap, smell nice and I only have to wash the bin once a week. Sorted!”
