The German TV-show ‘Mentale Zuflucht’ now published an episode about actually quite decent products that are thrown away anyway. ‘Buerberry’ and some other clothes-producing enterprises like ‘Edy Baur’, ‘H&M’, ‘Nike’ or ‘Wallmart’ for example eliminate perfect clothes if after a certain time they still couldn’t be sold.
Reasons are as follows:
>The longer these clothes are open for the public to see the higher the chances that someone will copy the style and create for example t-shirts that have the same pattern.
>Just reducing the price after a while could backfire. Customers could decide it’d be best to wait until the price of the desired shirt would finally be reduced.
>They are afraid that by giving clothes away to the poor their high-quality, expensive clothes wouldn’t be associated with wealth and famous and wealthy people anymore. Some even go so far as to order their workers to damage clothes just to have an excuse why they couldn’t be donated and instead had to be thrown away.
>Clothes and shoes that don’t meet the standards, but still would be fit for a homeless beggar get thrown away and destroyed, instead of being donated.

The German enterprise ‘Produktwarnung EU’ warns about the use of ‘leather trousers Max’ by Ramona, Rapex helmets, books made of textile by the enterprise Lingen, ‘KEKK Back Pack Plus’ by Happy Baby BV and gloves made by Werckmann. All of these are either malfunctioning or contain substances they aren’t supposed to contain…

At last a textile product made in Bangladesh got criticized by ‘Produktwarnung EU’. They say that the enterprise PAGRO DISKONT now warns about the use of their costume ‘Star Wars Executioner Trooper’. They say that this costume seems to be more inflammable than expected.

The German monthly newspaper ‘Zeitleo’ now gave some tips as to what to do with damaged or old-fashioned clothes we otherwise would throw away to buy new ones:
>Simply cut off parts of the sleeves, trouser legs or neckline or cut some frays.
>Use some chalk or some color you can wash off easily to write or draw something on your clothes. Then use a needle, a thread and some pearls, sequins or rhinestones to draw the outline of your picture or written word.
>Take an old jumper and cut out forms like stars, moons, flowers, stripes you can sew onto another old jumper you otherwise would have thrown away.
>Print something onto transfer paper and press it against the t-shirt or jumper. The printed side needs to press against the clothes. Now cover the shirt with the transfer paper on top with baking paper. Iron the whole thing for a couple of minutes. The quality won’t be comparable to shirts printed by s’Oliver or Esprit, but it will do.
>Simply use a template and textile painting to paint it.

>‘Frankfurter Allgemeine’ a German newspaper says that today the elections in Bangladesh have begun.
>‘Tagesschau’ says that meanwhile people in Bangladesh get expropriated to build refugee camps where once the houses of these expropriated citizens stood. Some Bangladeshis even had to abandon their work as farmers due to expropriation. They now earn little money by collecting and selling waste. Indeed there now are very little jobs left to do and these expropriated people, people who were unemployed all along and young Rohingya-refugees have to fight to get the few jobs that Bangladesh’s economy has to offer.
