Tips from older generation
People of older generation treat things more carefully: “Our grandparents and parents had this stuff, and they lived with it, and they used it. And the best way is to give it another life: try to sell it, do not throw it in the garbage!” They are passing this knowledge to their grandchildren: “When I sold some of my toys, I felt happy that’s they can be with other people. They can make other people happy.” Use things longer, reuse and resell old things. Save the planet!
