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 … View more
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.

5G - existential threat?

Tracy from Whakamarama

Thanks to Weekend Sun Editor for highlighting the existential threat from 40,000 satellites being fired into space shortly. However, they are not the only problem we face from 5G technology.

Approximately 3% of the population are hypersensitive to electromagnetic frequencies. They are already under attack from existing cell phone towers. 5G frequencies broadcast from every lamp post will intensify their struggle for health.

Anthony Goldsworthy’s research shows all cells are sensitive to low frequency radiation, not just the hypersensitive. He found the cells became permeable to calcium disturbing the normal calcium/magnesium balance. The cells stop normal functions whilst “pumping” excess calcium out. This may manifest as chronic fatigue as energy preferentially used normalising cell walls. With constant exposure, of course, the cells just flood with calcium and die. With enough radiation, we will all be affected.

We are going to be ‘bathed’ in these new, high intensity frequencies for corporate profit – with the blessing of government. Like Hutchison says, “cheap internet or existential threat” – we all know which should win, but will it?


5G aware voters probably voted for me in last years DHB elections, and I’d like to take this opportunity to say ‘thank you’. Anyone who wants more information on 5G should contact me on facebook.
