    Use by means expiration date when the product is unusable. This is important to avoiding wasting of food.
    Sell by means the product should not be sold after the date labeled.
    Best by means the product should be used by the the date indicated to ensure the best quality.

    I no longer throw empty plastic bottles away. Instead I reuse them as drinking water containers split from a big reusable bottle. Stay hydrated and environmentally safe!
