KappAhl expands textile recycling initiatives

Written by Tommy Lee

MÖLNDAL – Nordic fashion retailer KappAhl has announced its recycling clothing collection initiative, established last year, is now available in all its Swedish stores in a bid to reduce the use of conventionally grown cotton and oil-based products such as polyester, in favour of more "sustainable materials". For every kilo of collected clothes, KappAhl says it donates two cents (EU) to charities in its manufacturing countries, and contributing customers receive a discount coupon for future purchases. Similar to the textile recycling initiative I:CO, used by retailer H&M, the donated clothes are then transported to a sorting facility, where they are divided into reused, recycled, and energy recovered categories.
