{World Recycle Week} How To Save On Purchases By Donating Unwanted Clothes

“90% of textile waste is recyclable”

Yesterday after my outdoor yoga class, my friend Dana and I found our way into H&M where the window featured signage about World Recycle Week.  During the campaign period, April 18-24, H&M aims to collect 1,000 tons of unwanted or worn out garments from customers worldwide in its more than 3,600 stores. The initiative is part of H&M’s goal to close the loop in fashion, recycling unwanted garments to create recycled textile fibers for new products.

The timing could not be more perfect because I have started a Purge, Edit, & Organize (post coming soon) overhaul for my closet.  My plan is to sell the clothes that I no longer wear or fit properly.  Whatever doesn’t sell will be split between the Goodwill and women’s shelters in Atlanta.  Everything else, that I would have normally tossed, will go to H&M for recycling.  I’m not sure if this is the case for all locations, but my local H&M is offering 30% off your entire purchase if you bring in items for recycling.  This could be a win-win situation if you are in the market for a trendy new piece to add to your wardrobe or home.
