Did you know that 11.1 million tons of recyclable clothing, shoes and other textiles end up in landfills every year? Instead of trashing your unwanted clothing, take it to your nearest H&M store to recycle and save money at the same time. Now through May 31st, they are offering 20% off your purchase when you bring in your unwanted clothes (from any brand) for recycling.
And while you're at it, why not put the money towards their Conscious line of clothing and housewares? H&M is one of the biggest users of organic cotton in the world, and aims to provide fashionable yet sustainable clothing to it's customers. Just look for the green Conscious hang-tag when shopping in stores, or shop sustainable online at hm.com. Here are some of my favorites from the Conscious line to get you started – happy Earth Day!
