More evidence that repair, coupled with thoughtful manufacturing and consumption, is the most sustainable approach. As consumers: we need to take into consideration that if things we bring into our lives are not designed to be demanufactured there's a long-lasting cost to the environment. To paraphrase Patagonia's Director of Sustainability: "There are very few things that we consume [that is, that manufacturers make for us to consume] that don’t cost the environment more than what we can pay back. Making something last for a long time to reduce the need for replacement is an core environmental value."
I wonder how Europe is handling the recycling of their CRTs?
