STOP binning clothes! Get them recycled!

A hole in your sock ?

Did your jumper shrink ?

Do you own old and faded pj's ?

 

It is easy to just bin them, right? Right.

Is this good for the environment? Hell no!

 

Whatever the reason is you would like to throw away your clothes - please think twice.

Don't just bin them, bring them to H&M and get them recycled. 

  

This is what will happen to your clothes:

1.    Rewear – wearable garments are marketed as second-hand clothing
2.    Reuse – old clothes and textiles are turned into other products
3.    Recycle – the remaining textiles are shredded and turned into other materials

 

The remaining 3-7% of textiles that can’t be reused or recycled are used as combustible waste for energy production.
