STOP binning clothes! Get them recycled!
A hole in your sock ?
Did your jumper shrink ?
Do you own old and faded pj's ?
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.
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.
'In 2018, H&M Group collected over 20,649 tonnes of customers’ unwanted old clothes and textiles – not bad given that in 2016, we set a goal for 25,000 tonnes to be collected annually by 2020.' - H&M Group
