To Amazon UK CEO John Boumphrey
Please stop destroying hundreds of thousands of perfectly good quality items at Amazon warehouses each week. Put these items to good use where they’re needed most, anything left should be given to charities. Needlessly destroying items that can be put to good use when times have been so tough for so many is unacceptable.
Right now laptops, jewellery, perfumes, COVID masks - over half of them unopened and still in their shrink wrap - are being sent to landfill and destroyed by Amazon. 
Over half of Amazon warehouse workers in the Organise network say they've seen this happen at their warehouse - and a quarter say it's part of their day-to-day job to destroy items. 
Workers are asking Amazon to please stop destroying the items - and give them to staff or charities instead:
Please stop destroying items that can help hospitals, charities, homelessness, food banks, the list goes on. Donate them to Amazon staff or charities, or even sell them to us at a reduced cost instead.
It's soul destroying to stand and process thousands of items to destroy, knowing full well they are perfectly sellable items. Hundreds of beautiful perfumes, 60 year old single malt whisky, champagne etc... sealed makeup, expensive vitamin supplements, and thousands of books destroyed.
It would be very nice if Amazon workers could benefit from these items - if not free but at discounted price, and some to be donated to charity. As they say "charity begins at home" and I think we're very much part of that home.
Put these items to good use where they’re needed most, anything left should be given to charities. Needlessly destroying items that can be put to good use when times have been so tough for so many is unacceptable and entirely avoidable.
