Overpopulation and global warming are the issues that we are facing in the present. These issues force humanity to increase demands on goods and food, as well as improvement of technologies and their creations. New technologies are emerging every year to solve the existing problems. However, the truth is that they also introduce new problems, creating an endless circle of issues and solutions. One particular issue that is provided through the improvement of the technological side and by overpopulation is the mass production of new items. New items are in different variations and qualities that are endlessly conveyed to fulfill the demands of consumers. Although the usability time of most of the produced units is less than a day, meaning they are produced for the sake of it is possible and desirable. This kind of behavior introduced more issues, in other words, unnecessary trash, which will be degrading for hundreds of years and slowly destroying the environment that once was flourishing. The article will focus on issues that arise when unnecessary technologies, devices, goods are produced.
