Pardon me, excusez-moi
It was garbage day here today, and I saw this wood shelving unit, out on the curb, sitting next to the garbage bin, waiting to be picked up to go to the landfill.
Why are people (my neighbor) so wasteful?
There are other ways to dispose of things —donate! Especially, when it’s in good condition such as this shelf. For one, it can be donated to the salvationarmy - call them, they’ll pick it up. Or, put it out on the curb for someone to salvage it. I’ve picked up things on the sidewalk before - a nice vintage chair I need to reupholster, a vintage rattan chair.
There’s no need to waste, from plastics to food to clothes to furniture. People take it for granted, and the rest of the world has to suffer for it. All I’m saying is, try harder, try your best, and be more conscious.
This is a follow up to alissa_etc post today. Yes, girl, yes, eloquently said! And, to answer your post with a post, I think furniture companies should be the first to participate in circulareconomy.
Enough of these poorly made, low-quality, hunk of junk, flimsy pieces. Be accountable for the carbon footprint you set for yourself, and make a product that is sustainable for your family, your corporation, your country, your planet.
