Burberry physically destroyed $38 Million in goods in 2018.
The famous British fashion house, physically destroyed tons of products so far this year, leaving their investors and environmentalists, concerned for the companies practices.
The London-based trench-coat maker physically destroyed finished products worth £28.6 million ($38 million) in 2018, according to the company’s latest annual report. This figure has steadily increased from £26.9 million in 2017 and £18.8 million in 2016.
On top of the fashion, more and more cosmetics are disposed of each year, polluting our planet, as an unnecessary waste. Shareholders are unhappy, and openly sharing concerns for the planet and the environment. This shocking news, leaves us to wonder, how many huge fashion companies are displaying similar behaviours, and what would the figure be like for fast fashion companies such as Zara.
