Brilliant Idea #43. Force appliance manufacturers to solve the standby problem


I’m not arguing that we, as citizens of this planet don’t have a responsibility to reduce the impact that our lives have on the environment BUT..Brilliant Idea #43 is to force appliance manufacturers to engineer their products to NOT to stay on standby.

Case in point. My dishwasher. I turn it on and then set the wash program. When it’s finished it stays on standby. What’s it standing by for? Surely they know that most people put the dishwasher on in the evening once all of the dishes have been used. Why won’t it just turn the frig off. It’s just lazy product design and engineering. #makesmemad!
