DoSomething and H&M have teamed up with actress Olivia Wilde (a.k.a. Princess Layers) for Comeback Clothes, an initiative that aims to turn fashionistas into superheroes. No worries, that transition isn’t nearly as hard as it sounds! Because sometimes being a superhero is really just more about being super…ish. Like taking a small step to reduce your carbon footprint on the planet.

Did you know 11.1 million tons of clothes (imagine a pile of about 70 billion t-shirts) that could have been recycled fill up landfills each year? Saving the world is simple. Just run a clothing drive to collect worn-out or unwanted items from people in your school or local community — it doesn’t matter what brand or condition they’re in. Then drop off those tattered jeans and faded tees to the recycling bins at your local H&M by June 20th.

As a reward for going green you’ll get a 15% off coupon for H&M and a chance to win a $10,000 scholarship! And remember, pics or it didn’t happen. Get full details here.
