I’ve posted about this before, but think it is such a great opportunity to recycle and save, I wanted to post again about this opportunity. Also, I thought the program might have been ending, but it is still going strong. Often my family has clothes with holes or stains that just won’t come out, towels that are beyond even being of rag usage and old bed sheets. You can’t donate these items to charity because they’re unusable and unwearable, but throwing them away just assures these items to be added to the pile up in our landfills.
Well, take all these clothes and recyclable textiles to H&M. Your bag of clothes or textiles can be any brand or in any condition. They will give you a voucher for your unusable or unwanted and will recycle through their “Long Live Fashion Campaign.”
Here is how it works:
1) Take a bag or two of used clothes or home textiles to the nearest H&M store. As noted before, they can be any brand, any article of clothing, and in any condition.
2) Drop the bag off in one of their drop off kiosks, but make sure they see you do this.
3) Ask for a discount voucher.
For each bag of clothes donated, you will receive a voucher for 15% off your total purchase for the next purchase made (max of 2 vouchers per exchange in one day). In addition to getting a voucher, you can feel good knowing your used items will be recycled and not add to our landfill buildup.
Where or how do you recycle your unusable and unwearable?
