The Maker Movement Lowers Consumption and Waste:


The Maker Movement was born out of the desire to invent, design, create, hack, reinvent, and build things of one’s own hands.  While people have certainly been doing this since, well, humans have existed, making things has taken off in the last several years largely due to new tools, digital and physical, that enable makers to design and build things on a small scale with little prior knowledge and only spare equipment.  What has blossomed from this, is a raft of community knowledge such as that found on Instructables, as well as sites dedicated to selling niche craft items, like Etsy.
How is this good for green? [The idea is that] people value and will keep and use custom goods longer than mass-produced goods….
…
So, what’s your take?  Will the Maker Movement lead us to greener pastures or is it just a way to pass the time?
