H&M is releasing a new line of baby clothes that can be recycled in an unexpected way once they’re worn out — composting.

The 12-piece organic cotton collection for newborns launches in May and includes tops, bottoms with adjustable waistbands and cuffs, jackets, hats and blankets. All items are set to be 100% biodegradable, including the pigments used to print designs on the clothing. The pieces are also deliberately absent of buttons or any metal trim.

The collection is certified for using materials free of chemicals that are harmful to humans and the environment and producing the items with 100% recycled water and renewable energy. This latest effort from the Swedish fashion retailer comes amid rising volumes of global clothing waste and growing concern over fast fashion’s contribution to it.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 17 million tons of textile waste — with discarded clothing being the main source — was generated in the United States in 2018, the latest data available. The recycling rate was just 14.7%, with 2.5 million tons recycled.

In 2013, H&M launched a global garment collecting program and has set a goal of having all clothing sold in its stores be made from recycled or sustainably sourced materials by 2030. That figure currently stands at 80%, according to the company. The retailer collected more than 29,000 tons of garments for its recycling program in 2019 but said the pandemic slowed the effort in 2020 and 2021, with nearly 16,000 tons collected last year.
