      They didn't say. I was more interested in the clothes recycling.

        Recycling clothing in itself isn't a bargain

          Maybe not an immediate direct financial bargain but it still is a bargain.

          @spaceflight: you all have extremely low standards for a bargain if you think recycling clothes is a bargain. You could donate clothes as well which would also be considered recycling. The bargain that warrants this post is actually getting something in return for it.

          Stopping clothes going into landfill is a deal for the environment.

          Did I say differently?

          @spiff: The main criteria I'm interested in here is 'any condition'. I have two bags of extremely old, tattered and worn clothes not suitable for donating (anything worth donating has already been given away to my preferred op shops), so if H&M can take them, then that'd be awesome… until I see that there are no stores in SA, haha. Oh well.

      Maybe those somebodies can take the stuff that people leave dumped outside bins and stores, when there's signs all around saying not to leave items.

    Great way to lure people in for a discount voucher to then re purchase clothing at 70/80% margin. Some executive will get promoted for this no doubt.

      They've had this policy for ages, even back when I worked there. It's a part of the 'closing the loop' campaign.

    Why did you write 'unworn clothing' in the description?
    The deal is clearly for clothes in any condition.

    This is also just a generally good thing to do. They are well regarded for running a sensible recycling program, in which many clothes are just reworn without recycling (much more energy efficient).

      Wearing it again is recycling.

      What do you think is happening to clothes that is taking large amounts of energy when they're recycled?

      Recycling programs often have nothing to do with sense. For example recycling the 100% renewable carbon sink that is paper and cardboard is frankly crazy.

      Or a lot of "recycling" is just going into landfill because countries stopped allowing it to be imported because it was just going into their landfill for slum workers to pick over.

        Except paper and cardboard produce methane in landfill which is worse than CO2.

      It’s just a pity so many of their clothes are sourced from countries like Bangladesh.

    They burn their brand new overstock clothes, what would they do with those.

    • +5 votes

      “H&M does not burn any clothes that are safe to use,” Johanna Dahl, head of communications for H&M in Sweden, said by email. “However it is our legal obligation to make sure that clothes that contain mold or do not comply with our strict restriction on chemicals are destroyed.”

      Where did you get that idea? H&M isn't Cartier. Any unsold stock would just get discounted until someone buys the last pair of jeans for $7.50

    How much do you have to have in a bag? can you just put in 1 old t-shirt and get the 15%?

  •  

    Some old textiles are turned into blankets or cushion fillers etc

    Cool got plenty of old bedsheets and underwear

    I've done this a couple of times now.

    I'd bring in a bag probably a bit bigger than the old grocery shopping bags. Although they don't specify size, I'm never short of old clothes to recycle or donate anyway). Go to the counter and just mention you want to drop off your bag for H&M recycling. Some stores have a container/bin thing next to the counter. The sales assistant will then give you a small green coupon to use for around up to a year. Each bag is one coupon, but I'm not sure how many you can get a day. I did get two coupons for a particularly large bag once. The coupon says you can only use it on one item, and it's not to be used with any other offers, but I've had no issues using it on sale items.

    According to H&M, the majority of the donated clothes goes to be re-worn, with the rest being repurposed into non-clothing items like cloths, insulation etc, and only a small amount actually being recycled into new clothing. I'd be curious to see where all those old clothes are being sold. I generally just donate the 'better' stuff to Vinnies or Salvos anyway.

      Can you use 2 or more of these vouchers together to buy any one item? Probably not but just asking

    I'd rather donate for free than buy some more unwanted cloths from H&M haha
