USB cables seem to be a small but relentless part of throw-away culture. Inevitably, cables stop working well and/or get lost, and a new one is needed.
Are there any USB cables produced with minimal environmental footprint in mind?
When I try to search the web for this sort of thing, all I get is gimmicky plastic garbage designed to harness renewable energy (i.e. "window mounted portable solar panel to charge your phone from the sun during your commute!" - the irony is killing me, among other things)
