image for The Reason Why Louis Vuitton Burns All Its Unsold Bags Will Surely Amaze You

Louis Vuitton(LV) is a well-known brand which is popular for making luxury fashion items such as shoes, watches, jewellery, accessories, sunglasses.

The company sells its products in 50 countries with more than 460 stores worldwide.

We all know how expensive the products of LV are but did you know that this fashion brand burns all its unsold bags at the end of every year.

Yes, you read that right, instead of modifying or donating the unsold products, LV puts all the remaining items into the fire and the reason for doing this is very strange.

The company does this to not sell its products at low prices, in order to maintain the exclusivity that LV is known for.

Another major reason for doing this act is a US law that is called as ‘duty drawback’.

Although no one from LV has said about this, many industry insiders believe that the luxury brand even organizes a sale for its employees before destroying them. »

“This pandemic has the potential to really affect cities,” said Peter Clark, a professor of European urban history at the University of Helsinki.

Fourteen years after receiving the official go-ahead, scientists began to assemble a machine in southern France on Tuesday that will seek to prove whether nuclear fusion, the process which powers the Sun, can be a safe and viable energy source for Earth.

The experimental plant's goal is to demonstrate that fusion power can be generated sustainably, and safely, on a commercial scale.

"Fusion is safe, with minute amounts of fuel and no physical possibility of a run-away accident with meltdown," it added. »
