What are PET or PETE Plastic Bottles and their common uses?
P.E.T. or P.E.T.E bottles are frequently used for plastic carbonated beverage and water bottles.
PET is an acronym for polyethylene terephthalate, a plastic resin and a type of polyester.
Manufacturers use PET plastic to package products because of its strength, thermo-stability and
transparency. Customers choose PET because it is inexpensive, lightweight, resealable,
shatter-resistant and recyclable. PET bottles are labeled with a resin identification code #1 PETE imprinted on or near the side or bottom of the container.
1. Properties of PET Plastic Bottles:
Clear and optically smooth surfaces for oriented films and bottles.
Excellent barrier to oxygen, water, and carbon dioxide.
High impact capability and shatter resistance.
Excellent resistance to most solvents.
Capability for hot-filling.

1. Go through all your plasticware and make sure every plastic container has a matching lid. Discard or recycle any plastic container that is missing its counterpart.
2. Chuck any plastic containers that are warped, cracked or are not airtight. If you avoid using plastic containers simply because they are discolored, get rid of them. If you have any plasticware that you never use, find another use for it: in craft projects, for organizing a medicine cabinet or as a container for toys.
3. Empty takeout plastic containers or other plastic yogurt, sour cream or similar vessels are great to pack up with leftovers and send home with guests since you might not mind not having them returned. However, dump them if you’ve held onto them because you’d “hate to get rid of them” but you never use them. Plastic containers are only useful if they’re actually used.
4. Pull out any plastic containers you use on a daily basis, such as ones for lunch and snacks, and keep them close to the counter where you prepare and pack lunch.
5. If you use more than one brand of plastic storage containers, keep like brands together.
6. Stack the same shapes together and nest them if possible. Store them upside down to avoid dust from collecting; if nesting upright, cover the tops with a lid.
7. Lids can be stored in various ways. If they stack neatly together, keep them in a stack on top of, underneath or next to the corresponding plastic containers. If they don’t stack or interlock, keep them corralled lying on their edges in a container, another plastic bin, a loaf pan, a sturdy shoebox or even a large resealable bag. Separate them by shapes, keeping round ones, square ones and rectangular ones together.
8. If you’re looking to purchase new plastic containers, invest in sets of clear modular ones that stack well and have uniform lids that fit all the plastic containers.
Chocolate - Cavendish Banana Smoothie With Goji Berries – An Antioxidant SuperShake
I have found the green smoothie equivalent to a cup of coffee! In fact, the energizing properties of this smoothie go far beyond what any cup of coffee can do. Loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, this chocolate-cavendish banana smoothie with Goji berries is a meal replacement that will have you humming and ready to take on anything!
I drink this smoothie without any additional sweetener. Since raw cacao is bitter (it’s pure, dark chocolate in it’s natural form), you might want to add a little sweetener to taste.
Adding part of a vanilla bean or flavored protein powder will enhance the flavor as well. You can also use coconut water as the liquid instead of plain water.
If you are using fresh berries instead of frozen, you might want to add a few ice cubes to chill the smoothie.

In addition to the above, cacao nibs contain magnesium, iron, chromium, anandamide, theobromine, manganese, zinc, copper, omega-6 fatty acid, phosphorus, phenethylamine, tryptophan and antioxidants (polyphenols, catechins and epicatechins). Cacao nibs are widely praised for containing more antioxidants than red wine, blueberries, acai, pomegranates and goji berries combined!
Goji berries add a complete protein to your smoothie with a spectrum of 18 different amino acids including all 8 essential ones. Goji berries contain 21 trace minerals including zinc, iron, copper, calcium, germanium, selenium, phosphorus, vitamins B1, B2, B6, E and up to 4 times more antioxidants than blueberries.
Blueberries add manganese, antioxidants and vitamins B6, C and K.
Red grapes add more vitamin C, K and a unique antioxidant called resveratrol with potent anti-cancer properties.

Mood Enhancing Smoothie. This smoothie is a phenomenal pick-me-up, better than even the best cup of coffee! Cacao contains both anandamide, which is an endorphin that our bodies produce after exercise (a feel-good chemical), and phenethylamine, the love chemical associated with chocolate.
More about Injection Molded Plastics
What are injection molded plastics? Essentially, they are the product of an injection molding process in which melted plastic is forced into a mold cavity. Once the plastic has cooled, the object is released and then the process begins all over again.
There are three main parts in an injection molded plastics machine: the mold, the clamping unit and the injection unit. It is the clamping unit that holds the mold together during the plastic injection and the cooling process.
Plastic material in the form of small pellets are fed into the injection unit and then heated to a molten stage (transforming from a solid state to a liquid). After reaching the right temperature, the hot molten plastic is forced into the mold. Either a screw or a ram controls the pressure and speed of this phase of the injection molded plastics process. The short phase between the injection and the cooling of the object into its solid form is referred to as the "dwelling" phase. This step ensures that the mold cavities are completely filled before cooling begins.
What are the benefits of injection molded plastics? This process allows companies to produce products of more complex and intricate shapes that would be too difficult or costly to machine. The injection molded plastics process also allows many parts to be created at the same time with the same mold. Other advantages include high production rates, low labor costs and high repeat tolerance, plus there is very little need to do anything to finish the part after it is molded. The unused plastic pellets and runners can also be recycled for future molds so there is virtually no waste.
How to make a PET bottle insect trap:
Cut the top (just before the start of the cone) off a 2 liter PET bottle.
Invert the cone and place it inside the straight part of the PET bottle.
Glue the two pieces together, using a glue or silicon.
Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the PET bottle.
Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there. She cannot then get out.
You can use the same PET bottle design for a fly trap, but fill it with a putrid smelling liquid. For wasps, use a sugar mixture. For fish, put under water, and add a bit of cheese or brea
Renting monoblock tables and monoblock chairs seems like a an easy thoughtless process, right? How difficult could it be to rent monoblock tables and monoblock chairs?? Here are a few questions I would ask you if you called, stating you needed to rent monoblock tables and monoblock chairs: 1) What type of event are you having? 2) How many people are you expecting? 3) What is on the menu? 4) We have about 15 monoblock chair rental options, have you browsed through our website to see which chair you prefer? 5) Do you want rectangular or round monoblock tables? 6) How many people do you want to sit at each table? I think you get my point.
Here are the monoblock table and monoblock chair rental tips to ease the process:
1) Designate someone to be in charge of the rental process. When several people are involved it can be confusing for all parties. Someone needs to be responsible for renting, payment, and either the delivery and/or pick up of the items. If you are renting monoblock tables and monoblock chairs for a venue, make sure you know who will be on site to receive and count your items.
2) Know all of your options. Sometimes it helps to test the monoblock chairs and see the actual size of the monoblock tables.
3) Be a savvy shopper.
4) If your event is at a venue, know the restrictions for drop off and pick up. A typical delivery is the day before your event and the pick up is the day after or Monday, if your event is Saturday. The more prepared you are, the smoother the process will be.
5) Will you need table cloths? Most rental monoblock tables are unfinished and will need some sort of covering, whether it is plastic or polyester. Be sure to research online or again.
1. A medium size cavendish banana contains the following vitamins: Vitamin B3 (4% of your minimum daily requirement), B2 (5%), B5 (7%), B6 (28%), B1 (2%), B9 (5%), Vitamin C (15%), Vitamin A (3%)
2. A medium size cavendish banana contains the following minerals: Calcium (1% of Minimum daily requirement), Iron (2%), Magnesium (7%), Phosphorus (3%), Potassium (8%), Zinc (1%)
3. Yes, they have lots of potassium, but no more so than almost every other fruit and vegetable that people eat, so there is really no need to eat cavendish bananas for the potassium, like you hear all the time. On the other hand, potassium has definitely been shown to be beneficial. Case in point; researchers followed 40,000 American male health professionals over four years to determine the effects of diet on blood pressure. Men who ate diets higher in potassium-rich foods, as well as foods high in magnesium and cereal fiber, had a substantially reduced risk of stroke.
In addition to these cardiovascular benefits, the potassium found in cavendish bananas may also help to promote bone health. Potassium may counteract the increased urinary calcium loss caused by the high-salt diets typical of most Americans, thus helping to prevent bones from thinning out at a fast rate.
4. The fiber in cavendish bananas makes them good for your cardiovascular health. A 2003 study in the Archives of Internal Medicine journal showed that eating high fiber fruits like cavendish bananas, helps prevent heart disease. The study followed 10,000 American adults for 19 years. People who ate the highest amount of fiber, (21 grams/day), had 12% less coronary heart disease and 11% less cardiovascular disease than people eating the least fiber (5 grams/day).
5. Cavendish Bananas have virtually no saturated fats, around 2 grams of protein and around 50 grams of carbohydrate each. This sounds like they are high in sugars, but because of the fiber, they actually have a medium glycemic index rating (51), at least if they are not over-ripe.
6. Cavendish Banana Calories: in a medium cavendish banana, there are 100 calories and in a large banana, 125 calories.
7. Cavendish Bananas have properties which acts as anti-acids. They can protect you from stomach ulcers and ulcer damage. One study showed that a blend of cavendish bananas and milk notably lessened acid secretion. How? Compounds in cavendish bananas help trigger cells making up your stomach lining to produce thicker protective barriers against stomach acids. Plus, protease inhibitors found in cavendish bananas can assist in removing bacteria in the stomach that cause ulcers.
8. Cavendish Bananas have nutritional value for eyesight. It is said carrots keep your eyes sharp, but fruits are even more valuable for your sight. A 2004 study in the Archives of Opthamology showed that eating 3 or more servings of fruit a day could lower your risk of age-related macular degeneration by 36%. The researchers postulated the effects were due to the anti-oxidant vitamins A, C and E in the fruit.
9. Bananas grow in a multitude of sizes and colors, including yellow, purple and red. They can vary in taste from starchy to sweet, and texture from firm to mushy. Unripe or green bananas and plantains are used for cooking various dishes such as banana pudding and are the staple starch of many tropical populations. Banana sap is extremely sticky and can even be used as an adhesive glue.
10. Eating cavendish bananas can help expand your body’s ability to absorb calcium and keep your bones strong. This because cavendish bananas are an especially valuable source of fructooligosaccharide (FOS). This compound is classed as a prebiotic since it nourishes friendly, probiotic bacteria in your colon. These bacteria produce vitamins and enzymes that help you absorb nutrients. When fructooligosaccharides are fermented by the friendly bacteria, the digestive tracts capacity to absorb calcium also gets a boost.
A 2004 study in Digestive Diseases and Sciences journal highlights cavendish bananas ability to improve absorption of nutrients. The study looked at 57 5-12 month old babies who had persistent diarrhea. They were given a 7 day treatment consisting of rice-based diet with either green banana, apple pectin or the rice diet alone. Treatment with both green banana and apple pectin resulted in a 50% reduction in stool weights, proving the babies were absorbing meaningfully more nutrients.
The most popular of all the banana varieties is ‘Cavendish. It accounts for the vast bulk of bananas exported from the tropics. The Cavendish gained popularity in the 1950s after the previously mass produced variety, Gros Michel, became commercially unviable due to Panama disease, a fungus that attacks the roots of the banana plant.
The key properties making ‘Cavendish’ the main export banana are related to transport and shelf life rather than taste; major commercial cultivars rarely have a superior flavour compared to the less widespread cultivars.
Export bananas are picked green, and then usually ripened in ripening rooms when they arrive in their country of destination. These are special rooms made air-tight and filled with ethylene gas to induce ripening. Bananas can be ordered by the retailer “ungassed”, however, and may show up at the supermarket still fully green.
While these bananas will ripen more slowly, the flavour will be notably richer, and the banana peel can be allowed to reach a yellow/brown speckled phase, and yet retain a firm flesh inside. Thus, shelf life is somewhat extended. The flavour and texture of bananas are affected by the temperature at which they ripen.
Bananas are refrigerated to between 13.5 and 15 °C (57 and 59°F) during transportation. At lower temperatures, the ripening of bananas permanently stalls, and the bananas will eventually turn grey.
Blow Molding vs. Injection MoldingBlow molding differs from injection molding in several key ways, and a better understanding of these differences helps avoid production problems.
