Unworn Clothes Are Used As Fuel For Power Plants

Do recall a previous article before this on The Level, detailing the level of pollution that fast fashion has on the environment. Now it seems, H&M has taken an initiative to reduce the amount of waste: By burning its unused clothes as fuel for power plants.

The Vasteras Plant, just north of Stockholm, Sweden operated by Malarenergi is burning H&M’s waste as a step forward to a better environmental initiative. Although burning them won’t be all emission free, it’s still a much much better alternative to coal.

Sweden plans to be fossil fuel free by 2030, and using this as an alternative seems to be the better way, at least until renewable sources become a much more viable solution in Sweden’s geographical landscape. It’s good to see that H&M is taking an initiative towards a greener future, and while it may be a small one, the hardest part of the journey is always taking the first step.
