From thrift shop finds to eBay second hand markets. The stigma of buying old is becoming less than buying new. Whilst we're still not totally over that hump, there are a bunch of things you can do to buying old instead of new.
We're producing more and more waste each year, so why isn't there an economy around turning that waste back into usable products? Why are we throwing away refined, pure materials, instead of turning it into something new out of the old?
There is a moment in Don’t Look Up!, Adam McKay’s new climate crisis tragi-comedy, where the main characters, played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence, do look up. For the first time, they can see the asteroid that is hurtling towards Earth, the thing for which – until now – they only had data and calculations as proof.
Plastic. What actuallyis it? And is it all bad? Can we talk about the P word?
The original meaning of “plastic” is “pliable and easily shaped”. Our use of it refers to a material made of polymers, long chains of atoms in repeating units. That’s what makes plastic so flexible and strong.
It happens to all of us, cable frays exposing the shielding and we know that it's nearing the end of it's life... or is it? With FixIts you can quickly wrap over that fray and strengthen your cable so it's good as new again!
Sometimes that plastic buckle that holds your bag straps snaps and you're left with no easy way to join them back together. Luckily FixIts is strong enough to hold them together and can fix it back to new in less than 10 minutes.
