Have you ever purchased anything from H&M's small line of organic cotton clothing? Did you even realize that they had a line of organic cotton, in and amongst all the throwaway items that junk up the non-trend sections? Well, they totally do and the good news is that soon, you may just see more of the eco items as H&M is boosting their organic cotton use by 50% this year.

But wait! It just gets better in an awesome way: H&M is all set to use recycled PET (plastic) bottles to make a dent in their polyester production, along with incorporating recycled polyester and cotton. We hope they devote a section to showcasing these items, as it holds novelty value for the many midwest fans of H&M.
