H&M Conscious Collection

While H&M is a high-street brand often associated with "fast fashion", it does have a conscious collection that provides ethically designed clothing, and uses organic and recycled materials. Our only hope is that this paves the way for the remainder of their collection; indeed, the brand has promised it is going to aim for all clothing to be completely sustainable by 2030.
