Catch of the day – plastic oceans

If you’re concerned about what’s lurking in our oceans – no, not sharks – then you need to read our exclusive ‘Catch of the Day’ feature article to stay informed. The problem is plastic in our seawater and food systems, and it’s escalating. At this stage, we’re headed for disaster, and it’s an issue that’s not going to go away.

Back to the mainland – we follow KFM’s Liezel van der Westhuizen further afield, along a bumpy path up the Himalayas! Find out why.

For some comic relief, read opinion pieces by our Big Issue founder Lord John Bird and SA columnist Ben Trovato, plus lots more.
