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.

Hi neighbours.
Ferry service provider Fullers 360 asked authorities for an "urgent intervention" on Tuesday after four ferries were cancelled in a week, preventing hundreds of commuters from getting to work on time. It cited out-of-schedule cruise ship berthing in the CBD ferry basin as the reason for the cancellations.
Ports of Auckland, which scheduled the cruise ships' berthing 12 months in advance, rejects this.
"There is no change to the berthing process from previous years, which haven't caused problems," spokesman Matt Ball said. "There has been no late berths to cruise ships."
Fullers 360 CEO Mike Horne responded, suggesting the schedules clashed.
Has your ferry been cancelled recently? What do you think needs to be done?
