H&M's Unworn Clothes Are Being Used for Energy at a Power Plant

By //Fashion

In Sweden just north of Stockholm, the Vasteras Plant operated by Malarenergi is burning clothing as a part of an environmental initiative. Malarenergi has a deal to burn unworn clothing from fast fashion purveyor trash from H&M.
