Coach says it will ‘cease destroying unsalable goods after viral TikTok 

Over the weekend, a TikTok and subsequent Diet Prada repost, went viral after user Anna Sacks (@thetrashwalker) revealed she’d bought Coach bags and shoes from a reseller who sells products thrown out by stores. When the products arrived to Sacks, they had been slashed and cut—a practice that the brand reportedly upholds so that they cannot be used. The posts gained traction as this contradicts and undermines the brand’s Coach (Re)Loved program which encourages customers to trade in used Coach bags for store credit or have them repaired. After the uproar, Coach took to Instagram to say: “We always strive to do better and we are committed to leading with purpose and embracing our responsibility as a global fashion brand to effect real and lasting change for our industry.” The statement added: “We have now ceased destroying in-store returns of damaged and unsalable goods.” The post also confirmed that Coach will continue to develop solutions to responsibly repurpose and recycle products—including furthering its commitment to donating product to low income communities and those in need of re-entering the work force. Read the statement in its entirety below:
