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.

Mira Meek should have been commemorating her late brother's birthday on Monday, but is instead putting posters around Mosgiel near Dunedin trying to find who may have his ashes.

Her brother, Todd Campbell, died aged 22 after an epileptic seizure in 2011.

Just before Christmas, her mother, Ngairena Hibbs, donated items to the local Hospice shop, after downsizing her home. These included, by mistake, small metal urn and a small wooden box with gold inlay – each containing some of Campbell's ashes.

Do you have information about the items. Email hamish.mcneilly@stuff.co.nz
