Nine bags and counting
I was thrilled to find out that from now until Earth Day, if you do have access to an H & M....they accept all those stained or torn wearables that are not even ready for primetime at the Thrift Shop. So any fabric scraps, sewing/weaving/knitting projects that didn't work out, mismatched socks, stained outfits...pretty much anything textile (no shoes)... they will happily accept them and then give you a 30% discount on your next H and M purchase (Until Earth Day and then it goes back to 15% if you do it any other time of the year.)
The scraps will be recycled into new fabric or insulation and will be put to good use. It's always a lovely feeling to find a good home for anything you can no longer use that is cluttering up a studio or home. Especially when it's good for the Earth.
Here is the link to that H & M project and details of what they will and won't accept. http://www.hm.com/us/world-recycle-week
