About

Durability Matters helps you discover high-quality, rugged, and sustainably made products.

While durable products may cost more initially, they will save you money in the long run, improving the quality of your life and lessening the impact your purchases have on the environment.

However, buying high-quality is not the default mindset for most consumers. The throwaway culture is responsible for many of today’s most pressing problems, including environmental degradation, higher debt levels, and anxiety.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. We’re on a mission to help eco-minded, quality-concerned buyers find dependable products that are built to last. Some companies and brands are committed to making high-quality and long-lasting products even if it sometimes means less profits for them. Such companies deserve our recognition and support, and our goal is to find those companies and present their products on Durability Matters.

We try to find products by manufacturers that are striving to:

  • Create high-quality products, designed and built better.
  • Include extended or lifetime warranties.
  • Offer a great repair service.
  • Engage in sustainable manufacturing practices.

To find such products we use a combination of our experience, research skills, and our proprietary research software (based on OpenAI and other APIs). We look for specific product properties, scan user ratings, check the comments, look into the brand reputation, and more.

The equation is simple: spend a little more upfront, receive long-term value. But how can a buyer feel confident their investment is worth the price? That’s where our reviews come in. We are committed to transparency and honesty. We put each product through its paces before writing in-depth and insightful reviews.

But no matter how well a product is made, it will always need a bit of TLC (tender love and care). That’s why we also write about how to take care of your products to make them last as long as possible.

Buying smart is its own kind of lifestyle. Our buying decisions have far-reaching consequences, so let’s start buying smarter together, and help make the world a better place.
