Over the last 50 years in the UK, buying habits have dramatically changed. Buying an item of clothing, furniture or homeware used to be after much deliberation, something that was researched, considered and saved up for.
For many reasons this changed, possibly with the introduction of credit which enabled instant gratification and the introduction of mass produced cheaper products. This meant that the general population could buy new things without much thought or consideration. Often, once the initial excitement is over; and maybe the fashion has moved on, this will be discarded and replaced with the next latest product.
Waste is a huge problem for the world, and one which has been created largely by this shift in purchasing. Educating people in the wisdom and satisfaction of saving up, considered purchases for a better quality, longer lasting product is one of the ways we can help to reverse the trend.
