lululemon_see-through-pantsAs Lulemon deals with the backlash of their recall earlier this month, a new question is rising among consumers: What will Lululemon do with all those unsellable pants?

The estimate is that there were at least 17% of all women’s pants were too sheer and therefore, needed to be recalled. That is A LOT Of fabric. Will these clothes end up a in landfill like other “fast fashion” of our time? Or will they follow suit of the many retailers choose to offload unsold or slightly damaged goods to an off-sales discount retailer such as Winners or Marshalls or donate them to a charity like Goodwill.

While the brand might not want to take on the stigma of discounting the production, there are few options for what the company should do. Keep a watch for updates on this interesting ethical fashion issue.
