Changing attitudes

Of course, reducing our energy consumption isn’t enough if we want to minimise our impact on planet Earth. A major overhaul of our consumerist attitude is also needed. My great aunt recently had to get a new washing machine, the old one having lasted (along with the fridge and oven) since 1972 and she “only had to have ‘the man’ out once to fix it” in all that time.

Will anything we use now be functional in 30 years time? In this disposable age and era of inbuilt redundancy things that last even half that are a rarity.

Thanks to Amber for bringing clip this to my attention.
