STOCKHOLM – H&M has found itself again having to deny accusations of the incineration of new clothing – this time it is claimed that 19 tonnes of new garments were incinerated in 2016 at a facility in Västerås, Sweden and comes around a month after the retailer was accused of burning clothes in Denmark.

In October, Ecotextile News ran the story that H&M and Bestseller had been accused of burning tonnes of brand new garments at an incineration plant in Denmark.  At that time both brands noted they had no economic or environmental interest in destroying products, with H&M saying it was 'very rare' for it to send products for incineration.
