Throwaway

Much has been said about throwaway culture and how we don’t often fix things that break, we just get new ones. Products are not designed to be fixed, computers are commodities, etc.

I take part in that culture plenty. My phone has an integrated battery. When it wears out it can’t be replaced.

But, I am glad to say that this weekend I did my part to not contribute. $2, a utility knife, a screwdriver and five minutes kept this hose out of the trash and working for another season.hose
