H&M project turning plastic waste into clothing in Indonesia


Swedish fast fashion retailer Hennes & Mauritz (H&M) is partnering with Tirta Investama, the Indonesian arm of French consumer giant Danone and producer of Aqua, Indonesia’s oldest brand of bottled water, to turn plastic waste into clothing products.
