You Light Up My Life – The Oscar Winners (The Globe, March 7/8) is a montage of memorable songs that received the red carpet treatment at the Academy Awards.

The Manawatū Standard's local columnist, Carly Thomas, has become a waste-free warrior. She lugs her keep-cups and tote bags everywhere she shops to reduce her impact on our ever increasing mountains of rubbish.

She's noticed supermarkets and stores are adapting to the needs of the waste-free warrior, making it easier to adapt to the lifestyle.

Do you think you could go waste-free?

I can be contacted on (06) 9202182 or here, I am usually at home so hell they could even just pop in if they so desire 12 Jenks st.
I know this is a bit unorthodox way to find people but I'm getting a bit desperate.
Thank you and have a good day!

Yet again Bunnythorpe's community centre has been delayed because its $2.3m concept plans are seen as too grand for such a small community by potential funders.

About 700 people live in Bunnythorpe, but it's also about 10kms from Palmerston North, Ashhurst and Feilding.
