Swedish fast-fashion giant H&M has taken another step towards circular production. The move comes following its participation in the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Make Fashion Circular initiative.

The initiative was launched last year and sets out how denim design and production can be made to meet the principles of the circular economy through durability, recyclability and the responsible use of resources - of which H&M is a partner.
