World Recycle Week / Buy One, Give Two

Okay, so I love clothes, I love fashion, and I'm probably for all intensive purposes clinically addicted to buying new clothes.... It's a personal issue I've been working on but I've got a long way to go. So because I want to keep buying new clothes I've come up with the idea that for every piece I buy I will recycle two other pieces from my wardrobe. This coincides nicely with an event happening this coming week: starting April 18, H&M is hosting World Recycle Week with the goal of collecting at least 1,000 tons of garments. So I'll be going through my clothes and getting rid of all the pieces that I absolutely don't wear, the pieces that I've outgrown or outlived, and I will be hauling the sacrifices to an H&M store to release the haul. In all seriousness I would like to urge you to do the same. You don't have to follow the buy one, give two principle that I am setting for myself. You can see this as a chance for spring cleaning, a chance to shed some of the old dresses and t-shirts and those-pants-you-wore-once-and-forgot-about that are collecting dust in the back of your drawers somewhere. Instead of becoming part of a toxic landfill, recycle them so that they can be remade and given new life! Oh and might I also point out that for every bag of clothing you donate to H&M you will receive a 15% discount at your next purchase!
