Going out on a limb

Going out on a limb

Article topics: Legs4Africa, maxmise life, Minimise waste

In the UK, 330 million tons of domestic waste is produced every year, most of which is either burned or sent to landfill sites. This seems to be a trait common to wealthy societies and in the fast-paced world in which we live time is at a premium — we want products to serve their purpose and, once used, they are thrown away. Mobile phones for example, a must-have commodity in our society, are only designed to work for approximately three years, forcing the user to upgrade on a regular basis, both to drive sales and improve the user experience.
