No no, that’s fine. I agree. We should be pushing companies to be less wasteful. I was just commenting that it isn’t just Coach, it is EVERYONE, and the reason they do it is usually because of money.
The thing is, we could probably get Walmart, Target, etc to donate items they can’t resell, or even box them up for warehouse resllers (unsold clearance items usually go that route). Or get grocery stores to donate food they have to throw away, but could be edible if processed that day to a food bank.
But with Coach, they don’t want that. They do make nice, well made products, but they are also a luxury brand and you are over paying for that product due to the brand. As someone else up thread said, they don’t want unsold merchandise to end up at a discount seller. It cheapens the brand.
Though if enough people dumpster dive those bags, what I would do is repair it, but make it very obvious, with suture like stitches. Frankenstein bags. It would be an interesting look, IMO. You might even get people start to have it done intentionally to their bags. Think ripped jeans aesthetic.
