IEEE Experts Identify the Fourth R-word in Sustainability - Repair - WSJ.com | Russ DeVeau Sustainable ICT Daily | Scoop.it

"Regardless of size, there are numerous design features that manufacturers can use to improve the repairability of their products," said Kyle Wiens, IEEE member and CEO of iFixit. "Simple things like utilizing openable cases, using screws rather than adhesives, and providing easy access to parts that are most likely to break, like screens, greatly improve the repairability of cellphones and significantly extend their life. It is imperative for designers to incorporate sustainable features into their products not only to make them last longer but to help promote a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future."
