It's easy to forget and overlook problems in our society and concerns about the environment when we're too busy chasing our day-to-day deadlines. Sometimes, it can feel like we just don't have the time and resources to participate in charities even if we really want to. Thankfully, there are fashion brands that give back to society through the support of their customers. When you shop these brands, you're not just satisfying your fashion taste, you're also extending a helping hand.
H&M Close The Loop
Amidst the world of fast fashion, H&M launches the "Close The Loop" campaign as a response to the growing textile waste happening. They believe that they can bring new life to your old garments. So instead of throwing those tattered clothing from your college days, you can bring them to any H&M store and you'll get a discount voucher on your next purchase. They have already launched collections by recycling the used garments they've collected. Some clothes that are not anymore suitable to be worn are converted to cleaning products and some are turned into new energy. Before you say that this another marketing tactic, however, H&M guarantees that they do not profit from the donated garments and revenues are either donated to charities or invested in studies for recycling innovation.
