M&S to use recycled clothing labels

Written by John Mowbray

M&SLONDON - Marks & Spencer is to use around two million recycled drinks bottles to make over 300 million clothing care labels a year.  The new labels will start to appear in M&S clothing in stores early next year.

The new labels made of recycled polyester will also carry a new ‘Recycle with Oxfam’ message on all clothing, except for certain underwear items that are not taken back by the charity as part of the Marks & Spencer (M&S) and Oxfam Clothes Exchange initiative.
