More access for pumping mums?

Reporter Hamilton Press

Waikato mum of two, Sheena Thompson, is calling out shopping centres for not having accessible power sockets or private rooms for pumping mums in parenting facilities.

It's not uncommon for mums to pump breast milk in hot cars, cleaning cupboards, shower stalls or in disabled toilets due to a lack of lactation rooms. Are you a mum who's struggled with this?

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.
