On 29 January 2019 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported: Armed with screwdrivers and a zeal for change, a growing global movement is urging electronics giants to make devices that last longer and are easier to fix to cut the environmental fallout of the tech boom.

Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of science and business, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
