HC Wake-Up Call: Lawmakers Want Tide Pods to Look Less Tasty, You Can Buy Team USA Uniforms to Wear While Cheering Our Olympians On & Amazon Introduces 2-Hour Delivery Service at Whole Foods

Good morning Her Campus! With a break-neck news cycle, there is no possible way for you to stay on top of every story that comes across your feeds—we’re all only human, after all.

But, life comes at you fast. So grab a cup of coffee and settle in for this quick and dirty guide to stories you might’ve been sleeping on (like, literally. It’s early.)

Lawmakers Want Tide Pods to Look Less Tasty

Yes, it’s 2018 and we’re still dealing with people putting Tide Pods in their mouths. But New York lawmakers want to combat this by creating legislation to make Tide Pods look, well, less tasty.

State Senator Brad Hoylman and Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas introduced a bill this week to urge Procter & Gamble make their cleaning pods to not look appetizing, New York Magazine reports.

“They’re squishy, they smell sweet and they look like gummy bears,” Hoylman said in a press conference.

According to New York Magazine, the lawmakers have suggested that Tide Pods be made all one color, with child-protective wrapping over each individual pod and warnings on the packaging.

“We want to make sure these poisonings are prevented. It’s easy. All we have to make sure is that public safety trumps their profits,” Simontas said.

However, it is uncertain if these new precautions would actually deter people from putting the detergent pods in their mouths.

Earlier this month, Procter & Gamble CEO David Taylor wrote in a blog post, “Even the most stringent standards and protocols, labels and warnings can’t prevent intentional abuse fueled by poor judgment and the desire for popularity.”

Now You Can Cheer on Team USA While Wearing the Olympic Team’s Uniforms

It’s time for the Winter Olympics! This year the Olympic Games are being held in PyeongChang, South Korea.

And if you are feeling extra festive and really want to cheer on Team USA, you can actually get their uniforms. And honestly, they are chic AF.

While we might not be able to be just like the Olympians who trains for hours and hours every day, we can sure look as fabulous as them!

According to Hello Giggles, the Ralph Lauren pieces are available online. Unfortunately, the patriotic jacket with an interior heating system that could keep you warm for five to 11 hours sold out immediately. We can totally see why since it sounds so awesome.

However, do not fret, because there are a ton of super chic pieces still available online, including this very patriotic closing ceremony hat.

Definitely a stylish way to cheer on Team USA!

Amazon Delivery is Coming to Whole Foods

Just when we thought that Amazon Prime couldn’t get any better, Amazon figured out a way to sweeten the deal even more.

According to New York Post, Amazon is now offering two-hour delivery at Whole Foods to those who have Amazon Prime.

Since Amazon bought Whole Foods last year, they have been cutting prices on some of our everyday groceries and have even started to sell their e-readers in some of their stores, New York Post reports.

Deliveries start this Thursday in Austin, Texas; Cincinnati; Dallas; and Virginia Beach, Va. The service will be available nationwide this year, New York Post reports.

Shoppers will be able to purchase groceries through Amazon’s Prime Now app and their website. According to New York Post, there is no additional fee for the delivery service as long as the order is $35 or more. One-hour delivery, however, will cost an additional $8.

But the convenience is totally worth it.

What to look out for…

The Winter Olympics opening ceremony is today! Make sure to cheer on Team USA!
