H&M - clothing recycling for a more sustainable fashion future
H&M are giving life to unwanted textiles with their Close the Loop project.
Each year tons of clothes and textiles end up in our landfills, but as much as 95% could be used again. The H&M garment collecting initiative was created to decrease the waste and close the fashion loop. They want your old textiles back, from any brand, in any condition. By reusing and recycling they will get a new life.
So if you have something worn, torn or hopelessly out of style - don't throw it away or let it pile up in the back of your wardrobe. Bring back all your unwanted clothes and home textiles to H&M at Westfield Tuggerah. For each bag you return you will receive a 15% off voucher for your next purchase (maximum 2 vouchers per day)
Your textiles are then sent with their usual deliveries to the nearest processing plant. The clothes are then graded and hand-sorted. Zero waste is the goal.
REWEAR - Clothing that can be worn again is marketed worldwide as second-hand goods
REUSE - Textiles that are no longer suitable to wear are converted into other products, such as cleaning cloths
RECYCLE - Textiles that cannot be reused get a new chance as textile fibres, or are used to manufacture products such as damping and insulation materials for the auto industry.
When rewear, reuse and recycle are not options, the textiles are used to produce energy.
Next time you are sorting through your wardrobe remember to bring your bags in to pick up your discount voucher and help close the fashion loop.
