In our consumer society, our minds are always looking for something to spend money on.
Whether you want it or not, it’s here, half the price, and the last one available. We buy something and immediately release dopamine, only to find that what we just bought is questionable and is often a poorly made, short-lived, unsuccessful transaction. A few months at most.
But the Reddit corner known as “buy for life” shows that not everything piles up in landfills that have already polluted the earth. Things like belts are meant to last forever.
