Unfortunately we live in a disposable culture - we are geared to buy new rather than re-use old.

I think a lot of that has to do with the markets for new & used goods. There are many things I would be perfectly fine buying used, but have no hope of locating for sale in any reasonable span of time.

Are you suggesting there's room for disrupting eBay?

Or price. People tend to overvalue used items.
