    Online giant Amazon is destroying millions of items of unsold stock every year, products that are often new and unused, ITV News can reveal.

    Footage gathered by ITV News shows waste on an astonishing level.

    And this is from just one of 24 fulfilment centres they currently operate in the UK.

    If you click on the link and watch the video on ITV's site, you'll see loads of items in one of Amazon's warehouses getting destroyed. These are new, unsold products, not stuff that has worn out or broken.


    In a age of of greater awareness of damage to the environment, should we be allowing Amazon to get away with this colossal amount of waste?

  • I suspect they are not the only ones who do that, doesn't make it right and I agree far too much is wasted but the problem is we have become the throw away society, maybe Amazon could be encouraged to give the items that would be thrown away to charity so that they can be sold to raise money,

    It seems uncanny that they would do this. You'd think they would at least reduce these items to cost price and sell them on black Friday or something.
