We’ve all experienced the frustration of a gadget or appliance failing before it should - and finding it too hard, too expensive or just too much trouble to get it fixed. Such a broken-modus-operandi seems to have become ‘the way it is’, but the wastefulness and need to dispose of those no-use goods is damaging to the environment - as well as running counter to the drive for decarbonisation, as it encourages the production of more (often unnecessary) goods. The manufacture of those goods, of course, requires the use of raw materials and energy - and across the EU it’s estimated that only 5% of the value of the original raw material is recovered when goods are burned as waste.
