Do you really need that upgrade? Do you really believe in green consumerism?

In 2007, Americans upgraded their phones every 18.7 months on average; three years later, that number had stretched to 21.1 months. In Finland (home to Nokia among other technology companies), people now wait 74.5 months to upgrade, compared with 41.8 months in 2007.

  • Planned Obsolescence (undergrounddocumentaries.com) NOTE: “Planned Obsolescence” is a documentary made by Eva Vidal and Carla Casado, two sixteen-year-old International Baccalaureate students at Colegio Montserrat in Barcelona, Spain. This is a VERY WELL MADE and informative video ~20 minutes in length.
