H&M has been collaborating with WaterAid since 2002, including an initiative every summer where the retailer sells a limited-edition beachwear collection dedicated to the effort, with 10 percent of proceeds donated toward providing safe water and sanitation to developing countries. This year, however, H&M took its support a step further by opening a pop-up beach store for two days in The Hague’s popular Scheveningen seaside resort.
