Hhh&mmmm

I just read this article in the New York Times about H&M destroying and then throwing out unsold clothing.
I have done my shell game returning at that H&M location on multiple occasions. So aside from ridiculous waste and corporate greed issues...they may be trashing the art! I'd assumed that if my pieces failed to sell in a timely manner they went on to other lives at outlet malls or something. I didn't realized they were threatened by the dumpster!

  1. I can't believe I haven't read more about this. It's outrageous, can't they at least send them back to the people working in the sweatshops that made them?!
