Visit a H&M stores and get a $5 off $30 coupon for each bag of used clothes you drop in the I: Collect recycling box next to the checkout counters.
The clothing will be sorted at a central recycling facility into four categories: second-hand clothes; textiles to be converted into other uses, such as cleaning cloths; textiles to be broken town and used for other purposes, such as insulation or the auto industry; and textiles to be used for energy.
So even if they are not ‘donate-able’ quality, they can still be used! They don’t have to be from H&M either, any label can be dropped off. I had a pile sorted for the local thrift store but I think I will take it to the mall and get myself a coupon or two now.
Thanks for letting us know couponlady
Is this any location? I have a collection of clothes that I’ve been wanting to donate too. If my local H&M is doing this then I’m getting myself a coupon! 🙂
What a good idea. Hope this is any location as I have bags of clothes I was going to donate and might as well get $5 to spend at H&M.
What a fantastic idea!!!!!!!!! I have quite a good amount of clothes that I can’t decide whether or not they are in good enough shape to be donated to a thrift store…. Good to know that if it’s not acceptable quality for thrift store it will be used for something else! And to get a $5 off coupon for that is amazing 😀 I love H&M!
They started this program at the beginning of February, only doesn’t seem like in Canada yet. Fantastic initiative on behalf of H&M! Would have been better if it was few months ago, but we’ll always have more!
Was at my local H&M (I live in Toronto) yesterday and it has started, show your shopping-bag sized bag of clothing to the cashier first, then drop it in the bin.
When is this initiative going until??
I have seen a box in the Calgary Sunridge location.
Does anyone know when the coupon expires?
I’m really disappointed that none of it is actually to be donated for charity to those in need. I was all excited but read it’s being “it will go to thrift stores to be sold” if it’s in good condition 🙁
Still I was curious if anyone know if you can use more than one coupon together or is it just one $5 off every $30 spent??
