- H&M has recycling boxes in all clothing stores around the world. All clothes and textiles are welcome – from all brands and in any condition. Drop off your unwanted textiles to any H&M store in the garment-collecting box — usually next to the cash desks, and you’ll be rewarded with a 15% off voucher that you can use on your next purchased item. Find out more here.
Once you've put your old clothes in the garment-collecting box, our business partner I:CO takes over. They collect the boxes, and then sort the contents into three categories:
REWEAR — Clothing that can be worn again is marketed worldwide as second-hand goods.
REUSE — Textiles that are no longer suitable to wear are made into other products, such as remake collections or cleaning cloths.
RECYCLE — Textiles that can’t be reused get a new chance as textile fibres, or are used to manufacture products such as damping and insulating materials for the auto industry.
