We live in a world where waste has been planned into the equation. There is no waste in nature - waste is a design flaw unique to humanity and the right to repair is long overdue:
Thought-provoking article. The right to repair movement seems like a crucial step in the right direction, as it tackles e-waste, resource conservation, and climate change. I find that emphasis on repairability and supporting companies committed to recycling quite inspiring. Great read!
Great read, concept is not new as correctly called out in the article. It only takes looking back a couple generations to see how this was done. I practice repair, fix at home which I find is becoming harder due to “Non-repairable” purchases or parts. I read at one time that companies sometimes build in obsolesce into their products to ensure sustained revenue, starting there feels like help.
