Walmart and H &M New York Destroy Unsold Clothing

1/08/2010 02:40:00 PM ·

I would love to have a post today discussing the positives of traveling to New York, however what I read today on the front page of Yahoo makes me utterly sick.

Now, I'm sure many of you rushed out the day after Christmas to shop for huge after holiday deals and steals, and really, that's what we are looking for after overspending on full price products. But, would you ever imagine that if the stores couldn't offer you that $3.00 Tshirt for a lower price because you still thought that would break the bank, that they would throw it in the dumpster?

That's exactly what Walmart and H & M in New York did with their clothing items they couldn't sell. I don't know what pisses me off more. The fact that they could have donated all of those items to people that actually needed them, or let's see, the fact they paid someone to actually cut the tips off of gloves and holes in shirts.

The discovery was made by Cynthia Magnus, a graduate student (wondering why she was back there by the dumpster in the first place), who found several trash bags outside the H & M store filled with socks, shirts, men's jackets, to name a few. There were also bags found with Walmart tagged clothing dumped by a contractor.

Over a 1/3 of the population in New York is poor, and let's not forget, what about the other millions of people freezing and starving all over the world.

So let us rejoice and run out this morning to support big business. Yeah right! It's this type of irresponsible behavior that gives people that actually donate a bad name.

Aww, Walmart and H & M.......Starving the City One Ripped Tee Shirt At a Time.
