Old technics = garbage?

Number Of Participants: 1

It seems that the lifespan of electrical equipment shrank in the past few years. But not because it gets broken so fast, but rather because we tend to buy new stuff more often. I think that’s not necessary. Well, not always.

I used my old laptop for ten years before heavy-heartedly I bought a new one. My speakers that you can see in the picture are about fifteen years old and my stereo is … hm, antique? I love them for being very reliable devices with high quality standards.

Note: Please check the electricity consumption of your equipment. If they consume too much electricity a new device is more eco-friendly. And: If you decide to throw away any electrical device, make sure that you dispose it properly.

When I think about my childhood I think about sitting on the branches of the old apple tree in our garden and reading books about animals. Now grown up I spend my time working as a philologist, walking the dogs of the nearby animal sanctuary and exploring our beautiful German forests.
