Designed for the dump, needs to become designed to last. Prior to the technology that we have today, there were items that were passed down from generation to generation. Yes I know, often this was furniture. These items were designed not only to be used for one’s lifetime but also to be enjoyed by other generations to come. I am not sure if this same design mentality can be used with modern technology, but we do need to find something better than always needing to upgrade to the newest, fastest and flashiest product every few months. Especially when we don’t think about or worry about where the “old” product goes.
