Gap’s Environmental Gap

GapGap is committed to the environment.  It says so right there on the “Social Responsibility” page of their website.

They even make gift cards with 88 percent recycled content!

So why is the iconic clothier the only retailer in Westport not complying with our 6-month-old ban on plastic shopping bags?

I posed that very question to Gap’s media relations staff.

Unfortunately, they don’t answer their phones.  (They’ve even got a wrong number on their website “contact us” page.)  Callers are forced to leave a message, with the assurance Gap will call back.

I left detailed information earlier this week:  reason for the call, my phone number, my email.

I’m still waiting for a response.
