At H&M we believe in supporting local charities and communities. These are some of our key charity partnerships in the UK.
For almost 150 years the British Red Cross has been helping support people in crisis all over the world. Each year the charity helps around half a million people across the UK to prepare for, respond to and recover from crises.
In 2009, H&M were proud to become one of the first fashion retailers to partner with the British Red Cross to donate all unsaleable stock for re-sale across the charities 330 high-street shops.
The partnership draws upon H&M’s commitment to lead the way to a more sustainable fashion future, by ensuring that products that cannot be sold in our UK stores, do not go to waste and are instead donated to charity. Over the last 10 years this partnership has raised over £4 million for the British Red Cross. These funds have subsequently been used by the British Red Cross to respond to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies in the UK and overseas.
Unicef helps more children in more countries than any other humanitarian organisation. Unicef provides children with life-saving food, clean water and vaccines, as well as education and protection from violence and abuse.
Since 2015, H&M UK has been donating all funds collected via the mandatory plastic bag charge to Unicef UK’s Children’s Emergency Fund. The fund helps vulnerable children caught up in life-threatening emergencies around the world. So far H&M UK has donated over £2 million to Unicef UK.
While we no longer offer plastic carrier bags to customers in any of our H&M stores, we continue to charge for paper bags in an effort to continue reducing the waste caused by single-use carrier bags, most of which end up in landfill. Since the introduction of the 5p charge in 2015 H&M UK has reduced its use of carrier bags by 60%. Today all the funds raised through the 5p bag charge are donated to UK registered charities with Unicef UK’s Children’s Emergency Fund as the key recipient.
