In Fixation: How to Have Stuff without Breaking the Planet (Publication Date: September 22, 2020), entrepreneur and professor Sandra Goldmark calls on us all to move beyond our throwaway culture by rethinking how we shop and what we value, and to incentivize companies to produce better, easily repairable goods. Goldmark adapts a simple motto from the food movement that has profound implications: Have good stuff, not too much (mostly reclaimed). Care for it. Pass it on.
