Yes wheels but not me was saying he doesn't waist things , like a lot of us we save our goods to last for the time we need them , I still ware a dorlon 80s sailing jacket wich has been half way round the world
I agree that BP is right in one sense. There would need to be a radical change. But for that to happen, I think things are going to have to get a whole lot worse. The consumer has little choice with many Purchases. For instance, a Car is built with the intention that it will only last 5yrs and then be replaced and the old one scrapped. Here in NZ, a 10yr old second hand Car is considered only just been run in by many and many of us are happy to drive around a 20yr old Car. Except it could be considered just as bad for the environment as replacing every 5 yrs.
Somethings, yes fir sure, it is silly buying cheap nasty. There are people bringing in Sun umbrellas and Swing seat canopies to the place I work beside and they have gotten a season out of them. They ask if it can be recovered with something better. The reply is, yes sure, but it is $600 for the fabric and will last you 10yrs or more. They look shocked and say, but the entire set was only $300. Yes but it lasted you one season. Yes but I will just go buy another one thanks.
I understand what you are saying BP, but I think we would need to be on the brink of total destruction before people will change there mind set.
