cyclists towing trailers holding children

Margaret from Brooklands - Vogeltown

hi there ,is there a bright sole out there that can enlighten me why a character is able to drag his babies in a trailer on a 50 k road behind a pushbike, fairly obvious to me this person has no respect for these wee peoples lives . seen earlier this week mum was 2 abreast acting as a shield, dad today seen towing said trailer wrong side of the road up huatoki st hill . my opinion said idiot should be charged with attempted murder.

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 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.
