How to rethink environmental folklore

16 02 2014

It’s very very rare these days that I read or watch something off the internet that actually makes me fee uplifted…. well, this is one such video.  This Australian woman, Leyla Acaroglu, is one smart cookie.  Everything she says are things I have said myself for years and years….  her opinion of fridges in particular really really resonates with me.  And kettles……  boy do electric kettles, or rather the way they are being used, really gets up my nose…  ditto with mobile phones.

Right, consumption is the problem. Designing new stuff to replace the old stuff feeds into the same system. Designing fridges to counter the over buying and waste of fresh food is asinine. Buying what you intend to eat is the solution, only a brain required. The talk feeds into the “if we consume different we can keep consuming” fantasy.
