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.
