Marks & Spencer launches "shwop" drive

Marks & Spencer has launched a new service in Britain to encourage clothing recycling.

Customers will be asked to give one item of unwanted clothing to an M&S shop every time they buy a new item.

The clothes will be resold, reused or recycled through Oxfam. The ultimate aim for M&S is to recycle as many clothes as it sells – 350 million a year.
