H&M; has had its fair share of controversy--from organic cotton fraud to destroying clothing--but the fast fashion heavyweight recognizes that they must take responsibility for how their actions affect people and the environment if they want continued growth and profitability.

Enter H&M;'s Spring 2011 collection, which hits stores April 14, 2011. Called the Conscious Collection, it employs, what H&M; calls 'conscious' materials, organic cotton, organic linen, recycled polyester, and Tencel. And yes, there's something for you gentleman, too.

These materials were used in last spring's Garden Collection. The Conscious Collection is an ongoing collection for women, men and kids, that will be featured at H&M; at various times throughout the year.
