To eliminate waste, we need to rediscover thrift

Interesting point of view from Andrew Dent about waste and thrift.

“… We consider materials when they go into products and also when they get used, and, at the end of their life:
When can they be used again? It’s the idea of completely changing the way we think about waste, so waste is no longer a dirty word…”

“… All we’re looking to is resources. Resource goes into a product, and then can basically go into another product…”

“… I think, though, there are companies out there who understand this value and are promoting it.  And a lot of the technologies that have been developed for the smart age can also be adapted to reduce, reuse and also thrift more proficiently…”
