Why was it filmed?
Someone posted this yesterday. What a total waste. Why couldn’t they donate the dresses or the fabric?
It was posted twice I did the original thread on this
It is unfortunate. I have worked in a couple places where goods are manufactured. Whenever you throw something away, the product label has to be defaced and/or the product detroyed. It is common practice to avoid having someone fish it out of the dumpster and try and sell it.
It has to do with tax code more than anything- if the dresses are destroyed and disposed of, they can be written off at full value. If the dresses are donated and sold by a charity, the company can only write off the amount they were sold for or the “value to the non-profit”.
The law changed a couple of years back, in part because individuals were donating cars and writing off the KBB excellent condition value, while the charity was selling them for thousands less.
Yes, it’s a waste of some gorgeous dresses, but it wasn’t done out of spite or for no reason.
wow that’s really sad. could have made an underprivledged bride’s day!
