Develop fictional eco-brand, win actual stuff from real eco-brand

Back in the 1960s, a clever chap by the name of Tom Robinson created an organic fertiliser, a range of plant and mineral based home products, therapeutics, garden care and pet care and started selling it under the Earthwise name. Up until very recently, however, the Earthwise Home range, which spans laundry, kitchen, bathroom and living products, was only sold through mailorder, health and organic specialty stores. But it's just undergone a top-to-tail rebrand, had a big boost in investment and has now made its way onto New Zealand's supermarket shelves. And to celebrate this long-overdue eco-arrival, we've got five sample kits of the Earthwise Home Range to give away. All you have to do is come up with an appropriate/inappropriate name for a fictional eco-brand (extra points if you describe the eco-products you'd sell).

Whittaker's divides the court of public opinion – but all for a good cause

On Monday, Whittaker’s launched its latest novelty chocolate-lolly mash up with a chocolatey answer to retro bakesale treat coconut ice. The Coconut Ice Surprise chocolate has a twist though, 20c from each block goes to Plunket – a charity which New Zealanders agree is a worthy cause. However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
