Sorry for the very late reply David. I agree with your cultural view of Korea, having lived in Seoul for a little while now I can see that it is very much built into Korea's culture. But I would argue that being 'thrifty' as it were is a basis for being sustainable. Whatever the motives are I think anything that makes companies and people use less to make more is the most basic principle for sustainability. We can't just focus on environmental sustainability, people as a whole are not motivated by this. The idea that businesses can both save money and use less resources is the best form of sustainability there is. Korea is by no means a sustainable nation but we all need to start somewhere.
