Product service systems
You know what’s cool? Product service systems.
What are product service systems, you ask? How can they revolutionize the way we think about ownership and affluence? How can they dramatically reduce our ecological footprints?
These are good questions. However, I’m too lazy, and it’s too Friday, to answer them here. Instead, I’m going to do the bloggy thing and point you to a bunch of stuff you should read. Meet back here for discussion.
- For a long and reasonably comprehensive description of PSS stuff, download this UNEP report (PDF).
- You could browse around the Product Service System Information Network‘s website.
- You could read this Worldchanging post, which, as is their wont, is packed with further links.
Or, if you find all that stuff too taxing…
- You could browse through Treehugger’s PSS category, replete with fun pictures and snappy descriptions of real-world PSS examples.
I’ll write more about PSS some time, when it’s not so damn Friday.
