You Too Can Be Subversive

This post was originally published on August 8th 2015, and I have since appended two extensions to the theme - so republishing.

I dropped into a store this week to get a belt refurbished. Long story short … It will cost me $40 - about 25 % of the original cost - and that was a few years ago.

The lady explained the entire process. At the end of it I would happily have paid her to make an entirely new belt. She knows what she is doing.

Here’s the thing …

She pointed out that all she was going to do was refurbish - and then provide protection / to ensure that the belt really did last.

“That’s it” she said.

I want you to ‘be subversive’ - look after your stuff

Funny - later

Just watching a PBS report on Patagonia - don’t buy this jacket … essentially an entire marketing play on sustainability - I guess Patagonia are subversive.

There Must be something going on …

Just saw this … from Quartz :

I went 200 days without buying anything new and learned how toxic our need for possessions is
