Today I was lucky enough to visit my local goodwill store and find something that was perfect for me to bring back to life.
After noticing that it was less than perfect I decided that I would take it home anyway...the kind lady at the counter was very embarrassed that it was defective and was horrified that it had made it onto the floor. After I convinced her that it was indeed perfect for me she reduced it quite heavily (yeah for me) .
I asked her what actually happened to the goods that were "rejected"..she told me that they get packed up and shipped to third world countries, even the broken things!!!
I know there is probably good intentions there but I was quite saddened to think that our richly resourced country was happy to send our "rubbish to those in poor countries of the world?
Yes I am sure they appreciate that which we don't but I think they still deserve more than the discarded!
