Disposable Design

Products that are meant to be thrown away

Implications - Despite the fact that consumers these days are more concerned about their ecological footprints, there are still many people who will, given the choice, opt for convenience over being eco-friendly. As such, there are a number of disposable products on the market, ranging from music players to cameras, which appeal to those consumers who prefer one-time-use goods and who might desire functional ease at the expense of greener living.
