H and M and Wal-Mart Trash Their Unsold Clothes

I don't know about you, but this really got me fired up! Instead of doing a sample sale, deeply discounting the items, or even giving them away to charity, Wal-mart and H&M have been destroying unsold clothes and throwing them away. The New York Times wrote that a graduate student discovered this outside an H&M on 35th Street, saying "to make sure that they never would be worn or sold, someone had slashed most of them with box cutters or razors, a familiar sight outside H & M’s back door." Check out the full story on the H&M and Wal-Mart clothes destroying here.
