In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
I appreciate this business model and actions that reduce our environmental footprint. The idea of a company saying “don’t buy this” is wonderful, to create things that last longer… that’s the way I’d wish it could always be. I’m honestly tired of things being made to only last until the next bigger, better thing is out. Want the next phone? I certainly had to get one last year because my old phone wasn’t keeping up with me… But I was able to keep my old phone. Generation 1 iPad? That’s pretty much out the door, makes me sad that this is such a throwaway generation… so hooray to Patagonia for their business model.
