Amazon to donate unsold merchandise

Local News

(CNN) – Amazon says it will start donating some of its unsold products instead of trashing them.

Amazon will donate items that do not sell or items that are returned through a new program called “fulfillment by amazon donations”.

This program will operate in the U.S. and Britain.

Until now, third-party sellers could choose whether they wanted unsold items returned or thrown away.

Amazon will roll out the donation program next month.
