Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Whether products are touted as green, environmentally friendly, eco, or whatever or not consumerism is still consumerism and bad for the Planet. Also many of those products are not at all as “green” as they are claimed to be.

Unbranded vs branded products

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) We have been led to believe, through clever advertising and marketing, that branded products, be it cornflakes, cellphones or whatever, are better than those that do not have a brand label, especially not a “recognized” one. Many brand garments, as well as other products, are the same as those without the big names on them, with the only difference of having the logo embroidered or otherwise attached.

Bottle Pen – Product Review

While using waste PET to make new plastic products is, in general and in theory, a brilliant idea this shipping back and forth is not. recyclables should, nay must, be processed into new products in the country of collection and not in the current way.

Environmental Economics

Dan Petrolia in an AJAE review of the International Handbook on Nonmarket Environmental Valuation : The title of this volume gives the impression that it comes in the spirit of, and perhaps extends the work of, previous similarly-titled works, including The Handbook of Contingent Valuation (Alberini and Kahn 2006) and The Handbook of Environmental Economics: Valuing Environmental Changes (Mäler and Vincent 2005).

Review by Michael Smith (Veshengro) This new toy is expected to overtake fidget spinners to become the next big craze – a fidget stick. Mokuru is a (weighted) wooden stick, about the same size as a cricket bail, and is being touted as the biggest toy to hit Britain since loom bands - because it's easy to play with but fiendishly difficult to master. Millions of children and adults in Japan and China are already addicted to playing with the Mokuru, but it has only now gone on sale in the UK.

Needs are problems looking for solutions, not products

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Needs are problems looking for solutions, not products, and we also have, quite seriously, to learn to differentiate between needs and wants. The marketing industry, also known as advertising, has trained us well to buy products that will supposedly solve all of life's problems. Change our mindset I am one of those people, though I guess in many places they are a rarity, who looks for solutions first rather than going to buy a product, or a new product.
