The first time I drove past the billboard saying Ravensdown and Ballance pollute rivers I did a double-take.
Auckland’s billboards are often standard but every now and then there’s a campaign that grabs people’s attention – last year there was a marriage proposal.
One evening as I sat scrolling through my social media feeds I joined an online petition to Fonterra to bring back glass milk bottles.
The petition was small with just over 1000 supporters and called for the dairy giant to switch to glass to reduce plastic and it got me thinking about who initiates change – consumers or businesses?
I've been watching the story of Happy Cow Milk Co with interest since it popped up on my Facebook feed.
The other day I was reminiscing about how I used to take the empty milk bottles out to the front gate as a child, in an iconic white wire holder, to be swapped by the milkman the next morning for bottles filled to the brim with creamy milk.
You could be forgiven for thinking millennials are to blame for the demise of the Sunday roast and that smashed avocado on toast has replaced a great family tradition.
