Win a £25 H&M gift card
31st May - 5th Jun
Share a selfie to The Mall Blackburn's facebook page of you donating old clothes at the H&M store inside The Mall Blackburn for a chance to win a £25 H&M gift card!
Plus, in return for each donated bag of clothes and textiles, H&M are giving their customers a £5 discount voucher to use for your next H&M purchase of £25 or more.
Our planet’s resources are not endless. By recycling, you help save natural materials and contribute to closing the loop for textile fibres. Don’t underestimate your clothes’ potential to a second life – drop off the garments you no longer want or need at H&M and they will give them a new life.
Don’t let fashion go to waste!
H&M is committed to changing the way we make, use and dispose of our clothes. Of the thousands of tonnes of textiles that people throw away every year, as much as 95% could be re-worn or recycled. H&M was the first fashion company to launch a global garment collection initiative in 2013.
Today, customers can hand in to H&M any clothes and textiles (from any brand and in any condition) they no longer want. Every H&M store has at least one garment collecting box by the cash desks. In return for each donated bag of clothes and textiles, customers in the UK receive a £5 discount voucher to use for their next H&M purchase of £25 or more.
H&M's mission is to reduce waste and give old products a new life and eventually close the loop on textiles so nothing ever goes to waste.
No true fashion lover likes seeing clothes go to waste. H&M wants to make it as easy as possible for you to give your garments a new life. For example, they've already made some new collections from worn clothes – many of which came via their own Garment Collecting service.
There are three ways to repurpose the unwanted garments:
- Re-wear – clothing that can be worn again is sold as second hand clothes
- Reuse – old clothes and textiles are turned into other products, such as cleaning cloths
- Recycle – everything else is turned into textile fibres, or other use such as insulation
When re-wear, reuse and recycle are not options, textiles are used to produce energy. Nothing goes to waste.
H&M invest any money they make from this service into social projects, as well as research and innovation projects on how old textiles can be turned into new fibres. Which means in the future they'll be able to get rid of clothes waste altogether.
