H&M Throw Out Unused Clothing

H&M Promises Not to Destroy and Throw Out Unused Clothing

Thursay January 7, 2010 the Times reported that destroyed new and unworn merchandise from H&M and Wal-Mart had been found in trash bags on 35th Street.

“It will not happen again,” said Nicole Christie, a spokeswoman for H & M in New York. “We are committed 100 percent to make sure this practice is not happening anywhere else, as it is not our standard practice.”

-Ms. Christie said it was H & M’s policy to donate unworn clothing to charitable groups. She said that she did not know why the store on 34th Street was slashing the clothes, and that the company was checking to make sure that none of its other stores were doing so.
