"When you buy something, make sure to keep in mind that if you can no longer use it, the item may still be interesting to someone else. This means that you should buy items that are of good quality from the start and retain their value after purchase. Beautiful items that should be able to change ownership more than 3 or 4 times. Good material often means more opportunities for reuse."

Reuse should become something fun again and be seen as useful. It was already done in the Middle Ages. Old rags were exchanged for other goods and these were usually used until they were worn out. Disposal was almost non-existent. Nowadays, many products in our disposable society are seen as temporary and therefore quickly thrown away (for example, out of fashion).


Undesirable consequences of disposal include:

  • A higher burden on the environment
  • Waste of raw materials and energy
  • Unnecessary waste accumulation and much more.

Sustainability refers to the concept of meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In other words, it involves making choices and taking actions that balance economic, environmental, and social considerations to ensure long-term well-being for both current and future generations.
