Long Live Fashion!
1. Bring to an H&M store any unwanted garments or home textiles in bags (like towels, bed linens, curtains, etc.). The items do not have to be from H&M originally, just anything you no longer want...in any condition.
2. H&M then offers you a voucher for 15% off one item of your choice. (limit two bags per customer, per day- so only 2 vouchers per day).
3. Valid at ALL H&M locations!
4. H&M does not profit from these items- but instead turns it over to the customer (by way of the voucher) and makes donations to local charity organizations. Check out www.hm.charitystar.com
Then here's where the good stuff happens:
REWEAR: Clothing that can be reworn is marketed as second-hand goods.
REUSE: Textiles that are no longer suitable to wear, are converted into other products like cleaning cloths.
RECYCLE: Textiles that can't be reused get a new chance as textile fibers, or are used to manufacture products such as insulating materials for the auto industry.
ENERGY: When rewear, reuse and recycle are not options, the textiles are used to produce energy
Pretty cool stuff, H&M- even if the dress I just bought didn't wash well (bummer)! :)
