H&M to launch clothes collecting initiative in February

Instead of discarding or selling them at the next available flea market, try donating your used garments to H&M at Orchard Building and ION Orchard from February next year.

This clothes collecting initiative is part of the fast fashion brand’s global effort to save natural resources and contribute to reduced environmental impact by avoiding textile waste. Any pieces of clothing, from any brand and in any condition will be accepted. For every bag of clothing donated, you get $10 rebate on a minimum spent of $80 in H&M.

The clothes will then get reprocessed and repurposed for further use. So don’t be surprised if your Giordano jacket gets turned into a one-off gem next season in the shopping racks.
