The present economic system requires us to consume and throw away more and more goods. Yet often it's our desire, and the best interests of the environment, for these goods to last. The contributors to this book, who comprise many of the most significant international thinkers in the field, explore how longer lasting products could offer enhanced value while reducing environmental impacts. If we created fewer but better quality products, looked after them carefully and invested more in repair, renovation and upgrading, would this direct our economy onto a more sustainable course? The solution sounds simple, yet it requires a seismic shift in how we think, whether as producers or consumers, and our voracious appetite for novelty. The complex range of issues associated with product life-spans demands a multidisciplinary approach. The book covers historical context, design, engineering, marketing, law, government policy, consumer behaviour and systems of provision. It addresses the whole range of consumer durables - vehicles, kitchen appliances, audio-visual equipment and other domestic products, furniture and floor coverings, hardware, garden tools, clothing, household textiles, recreational goods and DIY goods - as well as the re-use of packaging. Longer Lasting Products provides policy makers, those involved in product design, manufacturing and marketing, and all of us as consumers, with clear and compelling guidance as to how we can move away from a throwaway culture towards an economy sustained by more durable goods.

With the encouragement of her adoptive parents, she studies Chinese and travels back to China in search of her birth mother. She manages to locate the village where she was born, but at first no one is willing to help her.

Annie was her family's dark secret. Her life began on a storeroom floor amongst the chaos and extreme poverty of World War II. Her ongoing problem of having one leg shorter than the other was helped when, unknown to her parents, she sought help at a children's clinic, where she was provided a built-up boot to help her walk. She was eight years old when her father took away her innocence and subjected her to horrific cruelty. Savagely beaten and thrown down a railway embankment, she was left in the winter cold to die on the railway tracks. Annie survived, only to be place in a convent. She not only had to face her demons, but find her identity when she became a Throwaway Child. Through sheer willpower and inner strength, Annie was determined to fight for her freedom by unleashing her parents' terrible secret. Sarah Lowe grew up in Birkenhead, England, and now calls Australia home. This is her first book. "My late husband, Jack, motivated me into finishing this book because he said I needed to rid the demons I have kept hidden inside of me for far too long."

I cannot even now say how many nights I lay in bed and hugged my pillow to me, burying my face in it, and cried and whispered, Mommy, Mommy or Daddy, Daddy, where are you? I would pray that somehow they could hear me. Sometimes even as young as I was, I felt so desperate, so alone, and I knew Mom and Dad would never come for us. I would lie in my bed in the darkness at night and pray so hard, and I felt that not even God heard me anymore. ---------- There were so many different homes we were in, and we were so young. We became little throwaways, little sheep. Sometimes we were able to stay with our father but only for a very short time. Whenever Dad could not pay for our board, he was in jail, or sick, we were moved again and again. Always obliging and quiet, learning quickly that crying and begging and clinging to Dad did not help us. We had our times to laugh as children, who even in the worst of their situations can do, and our time to weep as we did all too often. Thank God we had each other, two little sisters against the world that at times seemed too big and scary and extremely uncertain.
