A former Amazon employee secretly filmed the 'destruction zone' at the company's Dunfermline warehouse where unwanted goods are marked 'destroy'.— ITV News (@itvnews) June 21, 2021
A leaked document showed more than 124,000 items marked as 'destroy' in just a week.
This is shocking!— Dawn Butler MP✊🏾💙 (@DawnButlerBrent) June 21, 2021
Imagine how many charities and schools could redistribute these products to those in need.
The huge environmental waste is unacceptable. It makes no sense, Amazon should be ashamed!
People, products, profit - Amazon only cares about one. https://t.co/ySseGI9Vtv
Former Amazon warehouse worker claims his centre was asked to find 130,000 items to "destroy" per week including the odd MacBook. ITV News says it tracked many of these items to a UK landfill site. Mad if true. Fwiw, Amazon says no items are sent to landfill in the UK https://t.co/uSu6v7fj0H— Sam Shead (@Sam_L_Shead) June 21, 2021
"In one week in April, a leaked document from inside the Dunfermline warehouse showed more than 124,000 items marked 'destroy'." A totally staggering story. Amazon sending vast amounts of often brand new products to landfill/waste https://t.co/b84y6tDU78— Oli Franklin-Wallis (@olifranklin) June 21, 2021
This is absolutely staggering and it reminds me of Burberry burning £28million of stock rather than discount anything – except the scale of this is so much worse. You could donate those masks, laptops or fans to hospitals, schools or families! https://t.co/zwdG7ty7Pp— Zing Tsjeng (@misszing) June 21, 2021
Exclusive: Amazon is destroying millions of items of unsold stock in one of its UK warehouses every year, an ITV News investigation has uncovered.— ITV News (@itvnews) June 21, 2021
Many of the products - including smart TVs and laptops - are often new and unused. https://t.co/OJjexB0YQd#AmazonWaste pic.twitter.com/UR7XrLWvIM
This is the dark side of capitalism that Amazon don't want you to see.— Angela Rayner (@AngelaRayner) June 21, 2021
The wealth of Amazon's founder and CEO Jeff Bezos increased by $70 billion last year, and Amazon don't pay their fair share of taxes here. Meanwhile, they throw away items that could be put to good use. https://t.co/J59EhRPD0I
Capitalism is waste. Amazon saves more by destroying 140,000 useful products a week than bothering to provide them to those in need. The only reason these aren’t donated to the thousands of charities that exist in the UK is pure bottom-line greed. https://t.co/btovoxOPxz— Dr Matt (@MattColeWorks) June 21, 2021
And yet, if you criticise this utterly wasteful and cruel system and call for something new you will be derided as a "hard left" maniac and the media and political class will stumble over themselves to de-legitimise you. https://t.co/QB0BALk9vU— Gaya Sriskanthan #JoinAUnion (@gayasktn) June 21, 2021
Amazon sets up a system where it charges sellers by the month to store stock in its warehouse, offers a service where it will destroy items that haven't sold, and then washes its hands of the fact that it disposes of more than 80,000 unsold goods a week https://t.co/sfnyZ0nsi5— alex hern (@alexhern) June 21, 2021
This piece on the inequality of the GoFundMe economy is an important one. There is nothing cute or appealing in having to PR yourself b/c you can't afford basic life necessities like healthcare. https://t.co/pFWAr6mMKd@sorchroch3 and I did an episode on this back in March.— Toni Cowan-Brown (@ToniCowanBrown) June 21, 2021
