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.

Construction is underway on the Great Lake Walkway upgrade, with the first phase of works beginning at Rainbow Point this week.

The upgrade is being completed in stages to minimise disruption to users and includes widening and improving the walkway surface, addressing safety concerns, important erosion control work, and improved design that will reflect the values of local hapu said head of operations Kevin Strongman.

“The Rainbow Point section – from Kowhai Road (off Rainbow Drive) to Mapou Rd – will be closed to users for approximately five weeks from 22 January. There is an alternative route in place and we ask users to follow the signage at all times as the walkway will be a construction site.”

Once that section of work is complete, it will be re-opened to the public and contractors will then move onto the next section.

“Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding while we work to make our lakefront a more user-friendly experience for visitors and locals,” Mr Strongman said.
