An estimated 80.000 million garments are made from virgin resources every year worldwide. In one year, the fashion industry produces 2 million tons of pre-consumer waste. Five percent of all landfill production is textile waste. Only in the US, consumers dumping an estimated 10 million tonnes of clothing annually. You know where all your MMM x H&M -with a production of more than 550 million garments per year- clothes will end up soon.
(Maison Martin Margiela x H&M collection come out today, November 15. But just before you’re entering a stupid queue, you should read this brilliant article by Eugene Rabkin, editor-in-chief of Style Zeitgeist magazine, @BOF  and then remember: you’re not buying a MMM garment, but another piece of shit from H&M: www.businessoffashion.com/2012/11/op-ed-making-the-case-against-fast-fashion-collaborations.html).
