The Light Bulb Conspiracy: Do we buy new product because it is better? Or because the old one is designed to fail for company’s profit.

20 10 2011

I recommend everyone to watch this documentary. It shows business decisions to make shorter lifespan products to generate more profits. Resulting to our throw-away economy, or consumption economy.
If you don’t throw away, you won’t consume.
As an engineer myself, I think it is important to incorporate sustainability into our designs. Whether it is to design modularly or longer product lifespan.
