Are you a fan of fast fashion?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Many of us grew up flocking to Glassons, Hallenstein's, Cotton On and Just Jeans for our hardy perennials - jeans, t-shirts, summer dresses - and some of us still do.

But we're increasingly becoming aware that buying a $20 t-shirt that won't last the distance isn't that great for the environment.

While some of us are pledging to only buy second hand or to invest in statement pieces - more expensive items that will last a long time- not all of us have that luxury.

We're wanting to speak to someone who isn't giving up their fast fashion any time soon, whether it's for economic or style reasons, personal choice or indifference to the environment. Maybe you're a student who likes the choice chain store fashion brings, or perhaps you're a parent whose children are growing too fast to risk splashing out on expensive clothing.

If this sounds like you, please email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz.

Lost cat?

Miranda from Gore District

We have the sweetest little cat around our place on Norton St for several days, not starving but definitely not able to get to her home for some reason. She is very cuddly and does NOT consider staying out at night to be a good thing if someone has petted her at a house! Maybe owners are on holiday and she has got too lonely or newly moved to the area? I have no idea how communications work here in neighbourly but I will check in to see if anyone is posting re a cat. Also putting this on fb.
