This article is part of the Huffington Post \"recycling\" campaign, an ongoing project that shows the world waste crisis and how we can start working on it.
As a spokesperson for fast fashion, H & M seems to realize that the excesses of the industry are becoming obsolete.
The Swedish clothing giant is making big strides to change its way of life.
But is its efforts to recycle clothes and reduce environmental impact enough to make shopping in its stores an ethical decision?
The answer is complicated.
Last year, H & M sold $25 billion worth of cheap clothing worldwide.
Second only to Zara-
In terms of sales, the company\'s owner, Inditex, is also helping to create a culture of consumption that sees clothing as food that is about to expire.
Americans now throw away about 70 pounds of clothing each year on average, equivalent to more than 200 pounds of men\'s clothing.
Almost all the shirts were stacked.
H & M works with textile suppliers in China who are heavily polluting waterways and their factories use dyes and other runoff.
On 2013, a sweatshop building in Rana square, Dhaka, Bangladesh collapsed, killing 1,135 people. Although H & M has no direct link to the disaster, H & M has taken the lead in trying to reform the industry.
But the company soon failed to deliver on its commitment to overseas workers.
However, H & M has recently tried to improve itself.
In April, the Swedish clothing giant launched a campaign called World Recycling Week, which requires people to throw away unwanted, old or damaged clothes for the company to recycle or renovate.

, Aims to expand the coupon program created by H & M in 2013 to offer discounts to customers who donate old clothes.
Another 3,600-
Chain stores sell a \"conscious\" series made of recycled fabrics and adopt a more sustainable approach than is usually used to make clothing.
So, how ethical is it to buy clothes from H & M?
This is still the core of fashion.
The focus of the Huffington Post editorial campaign \"recycling\" phase 2-documenting and responding to the world waste crisis-is even more serious this month.
