"By choosing quality over quantity, as well as longevity over novelty, we’ll not only be able to spend more for something that is better-constructed and long-lived, but our purchasing habits will also have less of an impact on the environment." [Unclutterer]
I like this idea. Now that we're in a place where we'll live for a long time, we have been able to choose furniture and appliances that will last. But I guess I never thought of it, particularly, as a good-for-the-environment thing.
