Starting in the 1950s, as electronics and plastics became more prevalent in creating consumer products, the lifecycle of a product was strictly linear—from natural resources to raw materials to manufactured product, and ultimately, to landfill.
But isn’t there a better way? Of course!
With design for disassembly, we open up new possibilities to extend the usable life of a product, allowing it to be repaired, upgraded, reused in new products, or recycled to save natural resources.
Check out the post over on the Hardware Guide on considerations and best practices when designing for disassembly.
