Our devices come with a hidden environmental impact. We reveal what we learned about different products and how, by repairing our gadgets when they break, we can reduce their overall impact.
We appear on The One Show tonight, talking about mobiles and why we – and professionals – struggle to repair so many of them in a cost-effective way. Using mobiles for longer is crucial to reducing their environmental impacts.
This narrative frame of “peak stuff” is particularly dangerous because it suggests we are overcoming global, future resource depletion like we *are doing* with ozone, or we think we already did with acid rain. It lulls us into a very false sense of complacency.
