H&M Launch In-Store Clothes Recycling

Mega-retailer H&M made its name on "throwaway fashion" -- affordable knock-offs of big designers that you wear for a season. But now it looks like they've caught the sustainability bug with a new recycling initiative to make up for fast-fashion sins of the past. 

They're calling it the launch of a "global garment collecting initiative" -- which is just PR speak for an old-fashioned clothes drive. Starting in February 2013, customers will be able to drop off bags of used clothing at any H&M location, worldwide. The company is committed to recycling, re-using or donating all your old stuff, alongside I:Collect, who do awesome things with other people's discarded junk. 

And in case saving the planet isn't incentive enough, H&M is sweetening the deal with a $5 gift card for every bag you bring in. So start cleaning out those closets!
