Get a £5 H&M voucher for every bag of unwanted clothes donated

Found 15th Apr 2014
I walked past this sign today in Brent Cross but it looks like an ongoing thing nationally. hm.com/gb/…ion

donate a bag (they don't specify a size) and get a voucher for £5 off your next £30 spend! guess it's something for old rubbish you were going to throw out anyway!

Sorry to tell you it's been going on for quite some time now!

They do this for Mark & Spencer vouchers too

I thought that H&M sold unwanted clothes.

I see it in my local today first I knew about it, said max 2 bags per customer

Cold. Have to spend £30 first. Used to be £5 no main spend

I prefer to think about where the clothes will be going - perhaps to a national charity, to be sold and the money used to support the manager's salaries, cars etc ? Perhaps the clothes will be sent to the third world and be stolen by warlords to resell in order to fund their illegal activities (It does happen), or resold in Eastern European secondhand clothing stores (Seen them when abroad) ?
I would like a return to jumble sales, where you knew the money would help your local scouts, girl guides or similar, rather than contribute to the national businesses which most charities have sadly become.
I would rather give my old clothes to someone British who really needs them, or the Salvation Army, who at least run soup kitchens for British residents in need.

good points.

Title is misleading, should be changed to £5 off £30 spend when donating.

Not a good deal in my eyes, they get the clothes you don't want, then you have to spend a minimum of £25 (plus the voucher) in store.

As already said here, I'd rather donate to charities like Macmillan, Red Cross, Air Ambulance etc. as this helps them to raise funds

How many can you take, if your names not Max?oO

Think they recycle the materials or donate to charity, as thats what they do in Sweden anyway.

It was made as an incentive to recycle the clothes, which will generally be thrown in the bin as Sweden's high streets aren't full off charity shops like in the UK.

some 'British' who really needs them? a bit racist.

wherever you donate clothes to, absolutely any charity, jumble sale, huge department store... it all ends up in the same place. Sellable clothes get sold, profits are profits, whatever company/charity. All others are also sold at fraction of the price to the new version of the 'rag man', they get shipped on, or turned into rag etc. The world is smaller than people make out it is, everything goes full cycle and yes most do end up in 3rd world countries, having made various people various amounts of money along the way, having been stolen, bought or traded. And the same happens vice versa with the brand spanking clothes everyone buys, they originate in the same places, making different profits as they land in our H&M. It is the way of the world. Sad but true.

Can you use the voucher for an online purchase?
