I read an article in the Business section of The New York Times today about consumers having “a greater interest in making stuff last.”

Even though consumer spending has risen, many people continue to respond to the impact that the recent economic downturn has created.  “…the changes reflect…a reassessment of the need to constantly have new things:  ‘It’s a question of shifting values.'”

“…avoiding waste and using things until they’re used up seems like a common-sense way to live.”
