H&M recycle programme goes on throughout the year. During the summer I decided to drop a few of my old clothes at H&M and get discount vouchers for my next purchase. Well, who doesn’t love discount vouchers! ☺
I know that parting with stuff that was once your favourite is not easy, but what if I tell you that you can get a discount voucher on giving your old clothes to H&M? Want to know more about the H&M recycle programme? Continue reading…
H&M recycle programme. How does H&M recycle work?
The garment collection program at H&M is an awesome way to give your old clothes a purpose, and a wonderful initiative to control textile pollution. Yes, you can drop off any clothes and textiles from any brand, in any condition at the H&M store and get a reward of a 15 per cent discount voucher. You can find the H&M garment collection box next to their store cash counter. If you are wondering if they H&M recycle shoes? well, I guess no. But you can give any piece of your clothes, be it a bra, socks, bed sheets or any garment. 🙂
How many bags of clothes can you take to H&M?
You can take any quantity of old clothes. For an H&M bag full, they would give you 1-3 vouchers.
H&M recycle programme initiative.
So what happens to H&M donated clothes?
They collect the boxes, and then sort the contains into three categories: · Rewear — clothing that can be worn again will be sold as second-hand clothes. · Reuse — old clothes and textiles will be turned into other products, such as cleaning cloths. · Recycle — everything else is turned into textile fibers and used for things like insulation. source
My experience –
My sister and I carried three bags full of clothes (almost new) which we don’t wear anymore. We were excited thinking about the discount voucher and also feeling good about our old cloths which will be reused. We were asked to go to the cash counter by the store lady as soon as we entered H&M. Upon waiting for round 10 minutes a store guy showed up, dumped our clothes in the H&M recycle box and handed us three vouchers.
The discount voucher is applicable for just one item purchase. So three vouchers mean we can avail these discounts for three items.
I feel H&M is doing a great job as not only are they taking old clothes of any brand, they are also rewarding the person with a discount voucher.
My only piece of advice for those who are thinking to drop their old clothes at H&M would be ‘ Give clothes that are in utter bad shape, something that you would throw in the bin. Old socks, stained t-shirts, loose pants or anything no one would wear.’ The whole purpose of their initiative is to in-fact stop textiles from piling up on landfills.
For clothes which are in good condition, yet you don’t wear or need anymore, you can always donate. I know it’s not so easy to make time to collect old clothes and run to an NGO. But what if I tell you that you can donate your clothes from your door steps? Yes, all you got to do is schedule a pickup at SADS. They deliver your donation to the right place, and not just old clothes, you can donate almost everything from furniture, stationery, bags etc.
So people, start cleaning your wardrobe and get rid of the clothes you don’t need!
