THE TRUTH BEHIND THIS RECYCLING PROCESS in H&M
According to Public Radio International [PRI], H&M partners with global recycling company I: CO, which collects donated clothing from its 4,500 H&M stores and sends it to sorting plants.
The majority of H&M’s clothing is re-worn, such as vintage and second-hand clothing, explains Catarina Midby, sustainability manager at H&M UK and Ireland.
Apparently, when it comes to recycling the fabrics, only 5-10% conversion takes place. Moreover, we can make new clothes out of them.
