In an Age of Disposable Consumer Goods, PlumbSmart Stands Apart

August 28, 2018

Let’s face it: we live in an age where consumer goods last a few years on average, at best. While a fridge you bought in the fifties might have lasted you decades, a new fridge typically lasts five to ten years. A washing machine that would have lasted a lifetime now becomes rusty and malfunctions much earlier.

There are a few reasons for this. One is what’s called planned obsolescence, which means that manufacturers are purposefully making goods that will break down and require replacement. For example, lousy paint jobs are what’s allowing that washing machine to rust!

The second reason is that manufacturing has mostly been shipped overseas, often resulting in cheaply made parts that are liable to break down.

Lastly, in some industries where a couple of manufacturers dominate, a lack of competition is likely to cause inertia. If the product continues to sell, the manufacturer won’t see any reason to fix problems that are causing it to break down.

Finding the Quality in Everything

It’s infuriating to see products that die within the first few years of use. Ultimately, it’s bad for businesses and consumers. This tremendous impact extends to the environment as well. All this buying results in more and more waste along with tons of wasted energy.
