One Response to Do Fast Fashion Retailers “Promote Sustainability” Through Clothing Donation Programs?

  1. Very interesting perspective on the donation programs! I really want to view it as a positive initiative, although coming from retailers, it can certainly be a (sly) strategy for relieving shoppers’ guilt as well as being seen as “charitable” – a win-win for them. It helps gloss over the real problems.
