About the campaign
Today, our technology has a short expiration date. IT companies like Apple, Samsung and LG design their products to make repairs tricky and expensive and do not provide repair manuals or spare parts—while frequently advertising shiny, new devices. This is planned obsolescence.
This encourages us to buy expensive new gadgets even when we don't need them. For all the money we pay, shouldn’t our gadgets be made to last?
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Making devices that can be easily repaired and are designed to last is the most significant step that companies can take to reduce the environmental impacts of making our electronics! In the meantime, by using the electronics you already own for as long as possible and fixing them when they break, you are helping to save the planet’s finite resources.
Together, we can also change the system: join hundreds of thousands around the world in demanding that leading IT companies like Apple, Samsung and others rethink our tech, and design products that are longer-lasting, and that don’t cost the earth.
