What's your preferred peanut butter?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Premium and alternative nut butters - like Wellington's Fix and Fogg - have some of the highest sales growth at supermarkets nationwide. Have you made the switch to more artisan brands, or would you rather stay with the tried and true?

Our waterways and all the fish and species that live in them are precious taonga, so we have set out to understand how they are valued and what should be done to provide the future we want for our water.

My wife and I have been living at the edge of Belmont Park for over 30 years and I consider it my responsibility to pass on a sustainable healthy catchment to my grandchildren. We can’t do this alone and need your help in protecting the health and mauri of our water.
Increasing population and changing land use is putting pressure on our water, from our rivers and streams to the supply of drinking water, and management of storm and waste water. Fixing these problems is going to cost a lot, and we need to find solutions that are fair and equitable based on sound evidence and knowledge.

To do this we need to understand your views and to work with you and your community. Let’s shape the future of this place and our precious freshwater together.

Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at whaitua@gw.govt.nz. To see what we have been doing visit our Facebook page, and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say down below.

The Karori Stream that flows through my backyard serves as a reminder to me every single day on the importance of making our waterways healthy. We need your help in protecting the health and mauri of our waterways, which are under pressure from increasing population. We need solutions that require real change in the way we interact with water if we want it to be safe for our kids. And we need to think long-term about how and who pays for these solutions.

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.

“The funniest stage-comedy I’ve seen in years…” Simon Sweetman, Off the Tracks

Doug Morris has been the sole MP of his tiny left-wing party for nine years. But when Beehive scandals and social media disasters hit both major parties, Doug and his ragtag list of hopeless candidates – including a bus driver who hates passengers and a transport spokesperson who doesn’t drive – are in serious danger of winning power. Doug is horrified – he knows what they’re like!

Eeling and Feeling

Sean from Akatarawa

This evening my partner was swimming in the river near our house. Some teenage boys came along, hunting eels. She spoke with them and said she liked having the eel(s) there. They said "the river is public" and proceeded to kill the eel in front of her. I am out of the area at the moment. … View moreThis evening my partner was swimming in the river near our house. Some teenage boys came along, hunting eels. She spoke with them and said she liked having the eel(s) there. They said "the river is public" and proceeded to kill the eel in front of her. I am out of the area at the moment. I would like to find out who these boys are and speak to them about this incident, including my partner's feelings, and respect and consideration for others. Also, I don't know if these are long or short finned eels. Long finned eels are threatened, short are not. But mainly I am concerned about their disregard for my partner. They could easily have gone elsewhere at least. I am not out to "get" these kids, just confront them with their inconsideration and look at what could be done better. Do you know who these kids are? Want to talk? I don't really want a long comment thread and I probably won't reply to them. I just want to talk to the people involved.
