We usually talk about concepts such as programmed obsolescence, which we have already talked about here, or the useful life of a product, its stage of use ...etc. All these concepts are actually emphasizing the issue of resource optimization and its consequences which above any other consideration highlights the environmental impact of that product. This impact is quantified through the analysis of the product's life cycle, LCA for its initials.
