Amazon is throwing the house out the window, literally, because it is throwing a bundle of merchandise. A French documentary issued on January 13 already revealed that the US company throws away products that are not sold.

The program has infiltrated a warehouse with a hidden camera and found toys, books, diapers and televisions that were being destroyed because they were not being sold. The journalist has posed as a worker and has recorded the destruction zone where all these products were found.

The images show how one of the smallest ships in France had thrown 293,000 items in about nine months, in addition to other documents that showed that more than three million new products had been destroyed during 2018.

But the not only evidence of this waste in France has been discovered, because the Daily Mail has recently published a report where a warehouse manager in the United Kingdom also confirmed what they did there.

“There are times when they are returned, but at other times they are destroyed,” says the worker.

Although Amazon has avoided making a statement about it, it seems that they are in the process of donating all these products that are not sold.
