OTHER OPPORTUNITIES

H&M

Earth doesn’t have to be the only day you make a difference! Year-round, H&M accepts any and all unwanted garments, no matter the brand or condition. By recycling your clothes, you help reduce the amount of natural resources needed to produce new garments. As much as 95% of clothes thrown away could have been re-worn or recycled.

After dropping off your unwanted garments, the clothes are separated into three categories: RewearReuse, and Recycle.

Plus, not only are you saving the Earth, you’re earning savings, too! For each recycling trip, earn 15% off your next H&M purchase!
