  • Authorities are likely to destroy looted goods that they recover

  • It is a far more complex issue than you may realise

Authorities are likely to destroy goods recovered after being looted in last week’s public violence.

You wouldn’t want someone to benefit from ill-gotten gains, but is destroying looted goods advisable?

Tracey Chambers is the CEO at The Clothing Bank, a non-profit organisation that trains unemployed mothers on starting and running their small businesses using clothing "waste" from fashion retail supply chains.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Chambers (scroll up to listen).

We had record sales last year… partly because people are buying local… We have 983 women in the programme and 150 men… We have a lot of stock… They are trading very well…

Tracey Chambers, CEO - The Clothing Bank
