What happen to “Paying it Forward” or “Giving to the Needy? There is no reason why anyone should be throwing away new clothing and intentionally damage it.
While walking to a New York City subway station, graduate student Cynthia Magnus noticed bags of clothing outside of Walmart on 35th Street and H&M on 34th.
The retailers go to great lengths to make sure no one can enjoy what would seem to be a fantastic find by cutting up their own garments!
According to Cynthia the 20 bags of clothes at H&M contained:
“Gloves with the fingers cut off. Warm socks. Cute patent leather Mary Jane school shoes, maybe for fourth graders, with the instep cut up with a scissor. Men’s jackets, slashed across the body and the arms. The puffy fiber fill was coming out in big white cotton balls.”
Walmart spokeswoman, Melissa Hill, attempted to cover their behinds by saying the company normally donates all its unworn goods to charities. But as far as the 35th Street location, they would have to investigate why the items found were discarded.
H&M has yet to respond after being contacted.
This is so sad for those in our country in need and dissapointing and embarrass for H&M and Walmart.
