Old technics = garbage?

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.

Use recycled paper

Paper usage across Europe, Japan and the USA is monumental, the average person uses between 250-300 kilos every year. That’s almost as heavy as 45 bowling balls!

For each tonne of recycled paper used, we can save 17 trees, 26,500 litres of water and 4,000kw of energy.

It’s a no-brainer; swap to recycled paper. The LIVE counter below, shows the amount of paper produced so far this year!
