1. SAVE MORE MONEY
Good quality products usually last much longer. Items that are not well made often break down or are damaged after a few uses. By purchasing products less often, your cost savings over time can be quite significant.
2. GREATER PRODUCT SATISFACTION
When you purchase a good quality item, your satisfaction with the item lasts a long time. Every time you use the item you are reminded that it was a good decision to purchase it.
3. ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY
Because good quality products last longer, far less waste is sent to landfills. Shoes are a good example. In North America, million of pairs of shoes are thrown out every year. If more people bought good quality shoes, imagine how much waste this would save.
Natural resources are used in producing every product. The more items that are purchased, the more natural resources are used. Purchasing less often helps the environment. In addition, products that are produced locally results in less energy to transport them.
4. KEEPS MORE JOBS AT HOME
Many companies relatively close to your home produce quality products. This results in more local jobs and it helps the local economy.
5. YOU ARE REWARDING HONEST BUSINESSES
When you purchase quality products you are rewarding honest businesses that care about their customers. Businesses that provide quality products are operating for the long-term. They care about their reputations more than making an extra 2% profit margin selling products that are not well made.
