Give forward by bringing back

I think I have found a solution to my problem of disposing old clothes and old school uniforms that have been bugging me for a long time.

My son gave me this pamphlet from a popular shopping retail company. The pamphlet said the store accepts old clothes in whatever form they may be. The goal is to:

REWEAR (clothes that can be worn again);

REUSE (textiles that are no longer suitable to wear are converted into other products, such as cleaning cloths);

RECYCLE (textiles that can’t be reused get a new chances as textile fibres, or are used to manufacture products such as damping and insulation materials fro the auto industry.

The company’s collecting initiatives aims to lessen the clothes and textiles that end up in landfills when 95 percent could be used again.

“The H&M garment collecting initiative has been created to decrease the waste and close the fashion loop. So if you’ve got something worn, torn, or hopelessly out of style – don’t throw it away or let it pile up in the back of our wardrobe. Bring back all your unwanted clothes and home textiles to your local H&M store.”

As a token for the effort in bringing your old clothes to the store, they will be giving voucher (for each bag you hand in) with a discount for your next purchase. Please visit their website to know more about this initiative.

I’ll be sorting more old clothes this week to free additional space in the cabinet and do my share in reducing waste from old clothes and textiles.

If you know someone who likes traveling, what are the types of gifts that you should give that will be practical for his lifestyle? Here are just some ideas:

An all-around, all weather jackets, traveling can expose a person to different weather conditions. Having an all-around jacket will serve as protection no matter what type of weather the person is going to experience.

A luggage bag: Even though well-traveled people have their very own luggage bags, adding one to their collection will not hurt at all.

Clothing made of jersey. Some people do not know that jersey is very practical because it can be placed in any way and it will not get wrinkled. This is perfect for people who do not have a lot of space inside their bags.

Other than the gift ideas mentioned above, there will always be other gifts that you can give depending on the personality of the person you are going to give it to.
