Clothing retailer H&M is allowing its customers to rent its suits for free for 24 hours, according to Business Insider

The company first launched its suit-rental service in the UK yesterday but plans to offer the same service in the U.S. starting on May 13, H&M told the publication.

The move is reportedly part of a larger, sustainability-focused effort by the clothing giant, which launched a “conscious collection” in 2012. The collection features items that are made of at least 50% sustainable materials. H&M says it plans to only use recycled or other sustainably sourced materials by 2030. 

H&M told Business Insider that the suit-rental service also allows anyone with an upcoming job interview “to make a powerful first impression.” 

Customers have a full day to use the rental and will have to return it in a prepaid return bag to one of H&M’s drying cleaning partners, the publication notes. Though H&M shoppers aren’t responsible for any minor damages (such as tears or stains), they will have to pay the full retail price of the suit should there be any “major damage.”

Disclosure: Our goal is to feature products and services that we think you’ll find interesting and useful. If you purchase them, Entrepreneur may get a small share of the revenue from the sale from our commerce partners.


Although many of us will be returning to the office fairly soon, living in a post-pandemic world of new norms can also mean having the flexibility to work from home more often than you would have had in years prior. To prepare for this hybrid remote/on-site work culture, commercial-turned-D2C furniture brand Branch is offering $50 off its well-reviewed Standing Desk, along with free shipping, using the exclusive promo code ENTREPRENEUR. Given its $699 list price, that brings your cart total down to $649. 

Scour the web for the best standing desks on the market and you’re guaranteed to find this model listed across a variety of trusted recommendation sites including The Strategist, Apartment Therapy, TechRadar, Good Housekeeping, and Business Insider. And it’s not hard to see why. This standing desk’s minimalist yet sophisticated design gives it a mature look suited for the modern home office. Available with either a woodgrain or white top depending on your aesthetic preference, the Branch Standing Desk’s all-white legs will blend seamlessly into rooms of any color palette, serving as an especially welcome addition to contemporary spaces brimming with natural lighting. 

As well as the ability to hold up to 275 pounds of materials without impacting its lift functionality, the Branch Standing Desk can be raised between 25 and 52 inches. A panel on the front lets you customize the height using a combination of presets and centimeter-level adjustment while a discreet brushed grommet helps to keep cables out of the way in order to maintain a clean-looking workstation. Three-stage columns and leveling feet are in place to support all of this. Perhaps best of all, Branch asserts drink and coffee spills are out of the question, thanks to its Standing Desk’s dual, low-decibel motors, which were created with smooth elevation in mind.

In addition to the Standing Desk by itself, the $50 ENTREPRENEUR coupon code is also applicable to Branch’s Task Package and Ergonomic Package bundles. While the former includes a combination of either the company’s Team Plus Desk or Executive Desk and Task Chair, the latter couples the Team Plus Desk or Executive Desk with an Ergonomic Chair. Whatever your newfound work-from-home needs, Branch has you covered with a deal that could save you the time and money spent shopping around elsewhere.

Coca-Cola Asks Its Workers to Be ‘Less White’ to Fight Racism

This article was translated from our Spanish edition using AI technologies. Errors may exist due to this process.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.


One of the great challenges that brands face today is to implement inclusion policies and eradicate sexist, elitist and racist practices, both in their internal operation and in the image they project. For this reason, Coca-Cola believed it was convenient for its workers to participate in an anti-racism course to learn to be “less white”.

The seminar entitled ‘Facing Racism’ , given by Robin DiAngelo , was presented through LinkedIn Education publicly, although not free of charge. The company admitted that, in effect, it invited its workers to take the course, but they clarify that it was not mandatory.

Despite its good intentions, Coca-Cola now faces a reputational and image crisis. While the firm viewed the seminar as part of a diversity strategy, the approach to the training was highly controversial.

 

So was the ‘anti-racism’ training

The agenda was laid out by Dr. Karlyn Borysenko , an organizational psychologist working to end the racially divisive ideology of “critical race theory,” according to her Twitter profile.

The course description made it clear that its goal was to guide people to be “less white” , help them “understand what it means to be white” and “challenge what it means to be racist” .

However, on social networks they released some of the slides used in the seminar and the concepts presented left many speechless.

In one of the images you can read: “To be less white is: to be less oppressive, to be less arrogant, to be less trusting, to be less defensive, to be less ignorant, to be more humble, to listen, to believe. , break with apathy and break with white solidarity ” .

Another says that “in the United States and other Western nations, whites are socialized to feel that they are inherently superior because they are white .” And they finish with an invitation: “Try to be less white .”

 

 

The reactions were swift

Although the Coca-Cola initiative was applauded by many on social networks, others were upset and have even called for a boycott of the brand.

Internet users point out that Robin DiAngelo’s speech, instead of combating racism, attacks an entire group: people with fair skin. They argue that this approach attributes stereotyped characteristics and behaviors to ‘whites’ based on prejudices.

Based on the slides, Internet users interpret that the course teaches that being white is synonymous with being oppressive, arrogant, confident, defensive, ignorant, arrogant, apathetic and closed-minded. Even a Twitter user highlighted that in the content they “substituted racist for white” , attributing negative characteristics based on skin color.

For its part, Coca-Cola ensures that the material that circulates on social networks “is not a focus of the curriculum of our company,” according to statements collected by Chris Pandolfo of Blaze Public Relations.

“Our Better Together global learning curriculum is part of a plan to help build an inclusive workplace. It is made up of a series of short vignettes, each a few minutes long. The training includes access to LinkedIn Learning on a variety of topics, including diversity, equity, and inclusion. We will continue to refine this curriculum , ”the company added.

For now, the LinkedIn Education platform withdrew the course from its catalog, while the country music singer composed the song “We have to be less white” as a sarcasm, here is the video.

This Monday, May 10, we celebrate Mother’s Day in various Latin American countries and, as every year, it is time to think of a gift that can make the celebration different for Mom and remind her how much you love her.

Why not give him a different gift and at the same time support Mexican entrepreneurs who make local products? WhatsApp gave us some recommendations for you to consent to the queen of your house.

1. Choose something for your personal care

We have all turned to flowers for Mother’s Day, but this year we will live again on May 10 amid restrictions due to the health emergency due to COVID-19. That is why you can choose to give mom a different gift so that she can pamper herself at home. For example, the Panalli brand offers products made from honey. On their website you can find everything from skin care kits to scented candles. On the other hand, the Mexican brand MyCoffee Box , offers organic coffee scrubs with a touch of honey and grapefruit to renew the skin.

Get to know the catalog of both businesses through WhatsApp Business:

2. Something that is useful and stylish

  1. Select the chat
  2. Click on the camera icon
  3. Select a photo from your gallery or take one right now
  4. Once you are comfortable with the image, use the icons at the top of the screen to add emojis or stickers, text, and use the stylus to make free strokes.
