Time, money, and effort had been heavily invested in getting all of this stuff—only to be disposed of with great difficulty. We were destroying the planet for future generations, all so that we could enjoy a short lifetime full of material possessions that in many cases were hardly used, rarely necessary and easily forgotten.
Maybe it is just me getting old. But as I get older I realised I want less of it. This “it” I’m talking about is stuff. There is no point in getting so many shirts and T-shirts but to only have them idling in the cupboard. If you pay attention, you will realised that you only use that few regular pieces.
