Consumer's Anonymous - Futility. Next meeting Feb 26

Alisa Hogan from Hutt Timebank

Consumer's Anonymous is a group of locals who care about our environment and want to think carefully about the impacts our buying decisions can have. One example is kicking our plastic habit! What are alternatives to using plastic? How can we make good ethical choices? How can we reduce our consumption?
Join Transition Town Lower Hutt to discuss the problem of being individuals, or small locally organized groups, trying to bring about change in the face of the scale and momentum of massive political and economic enterprises. Is all our effort just futile perhaps, or at best just helpful to a few? Is the magnitude of the problems overwhelming? All Welcome.
7.30pm, Tuesday Feb 26th

Light rail proposed for Lower Hutt

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

The Green Party wants to see light rail in Lower Hutt.

The Greens’ transport policy backs the introduction of light rail between Wellington City, and the eastern and southern suburbs which they say would reduce congestion and emissions. It also includes extending it to Lower Hutt, making it possible to catch a light rail all the way from central Hutt to the airport.

Light rail could utilise the existing train network’s track gauge but Labour has already said it will not happen under its watch.
What do you think?
