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.

“The Very Lonely Firefly” by Eric Carle | Learn English with your Kids!

Two of the most highly requested areas in English language learning are English for preschoolers (ages 3 – 5) and Business English. Although these areas can seem like polar opposites, they don’t have to be! It often occurs that adults spending all of their time concentrating on Business English miss out on the foundational words and phrases that play an integral part in speaking the language – words which appear frequently in the English directed towards very young learners.

So, in order to help you improve your foundations of English, here are some activities you can do with your children to not only help you to improve your English basics, but also help you to begin introducing English to your young learner.
