We are currently having wasteful behaviour. The reason for this is both lack of awareness and motivation. Unfortunately, just raising awareness does not imply a change of behaviour. As you say: “That Our Loved Ones Become Ourselves”. So building solid and trustful community will change the attitudes and the way we act.
The wasteful, throwaway culture also disturbs us and the environment. Circular economy is not just a business model, it involves the community and individuals and determination for change. According to Sitra, “Finland is among the first countries to move towards an era in which well-being in society cannot be increased through the mass production of more and more goods.
We got this inspiration from both ourselves and our interviews where people said that they used to repair their things with the help from their parents. But the ones that did not repair things, did not have parents that did either.
