The New York Times reported the shameful practice of  H&M and Walmart where sadly instead of giving away unworn clothing to the needy (that is such a no-brainer) they destroy the unworn clothing so no one can wear it.

I’m speechless and so sad that the practice of these companies is so selfish and thoughtless when so many are in need. From their corporate responsibility section on the website:  “H&M’s business concept is to offer our customers fashion and quality at the best price. At H&M, quality is about more than making sure that our products meet or exceed our customers’ expectations.It also means that they have to be manufactured under good conditions and that our customers must be satisfied with us as a company. Taking responsibility for how our operations affect people and the environment is also an essential prerequisite for H&M’s continued profitability and growth.” Well we need to keep watching to see if they walk their talk- since they certainly do not in NYC.
