H&M to recycle clothing in Russia

Apr 08, 2021

In 2013, H&M became the first retailer that offered the unused clothes gathering program in chain stores worldwide.

H&M restarts the clothing recycling program and will do it in Russia, the retailer says on Monday.

"H&M Russia launches an updated program for unneeded garments gathering. Now all the stages - from textile gathering in H&M Group stores to sorting, reuse and recycling, will take place in the territory of Russia with participation of a local partner - Laut Recycling program," the company says.

In 2013, H&M became the first retailer that offered the unused clothes gathering program in chain stores worldwide. In March 2021, the company restarts this program in Russia. Laut Recycling, a company located in the Ivanovo Region and dealing with textile items gathering, sorting and processing, will be the new H&M partner within the scope of the Garment Collecting program.
