Sustainability at H&M

I was shocked when I recently read the fashion industry is using more resources than the planet allows. As much as 95% of clothes thrown away could be re-worn or recycled.

By recycling your clothes you help reduce the amount of natural resources needed to produce new garments. H&M is committed to changing the way they make, use, and dispose of clothes. Far too much fashion ends up in landfills as every year thousands of tons of textiles are thrown away with household waste.

Knowing these facts would make anyone look at fashion and clothing in a new light. We know that no true fashion lover ever likes seeing clothes go to waste. We are happy to share H&M is making it as easy as possible for customers to give their garments a new life and helping closing the loop on fashion. Any clothes or home textiles that are no longer wanted or needed, can be dropped off at any local H&M store – and given a new purpose. You also get 15% discount towards your next purchase!
