[GMW #3274] Pass On Books, Magazines, Cards Instead Of Wasteful Shredding

[GMW #3274] Pass On Books, Magazines, Cards Instead Of Wasteful Shredding

Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 3500
~ Idea 3674~
Visiting after that book store an all products store, a souvenir store and a cards store I saw in all four along a wall a display of an incredible number of US magazines and another wall and several displays of innumerable wishing cards for all sorts of occasions.

The manager of one of the stores told me that almost all the magazines remained unsold and had to be returned to be shredded. Pocketbooks had the same fate. He pleaded with the producers to at least give them away to poor people, to old people's homes, etc. but they refused saying that it would be detrimental to the market. Cards fared better and had not to be returned.

I was thinking of the thousands of stores in the United States who were carrying these magazines, pocketbooks and cards.

I told him how best sellers are made: 500,000 copies or more are printed and spread around the country to book stores and selling points. From 10,000 to 50,000 are sold and the rest are returned to be shredded.

No wonder that one half of the entire production of 'goods' in the western countries is waste.

Alcohol numbs all the organs of the human body, including the heart muscles. These must therefore make an extra effort to pump the blood circulation throughout the body. Alcohol is therefore one of the main causes of the so-called heart 'attack'.
