Earth Day falls on April 22, so why not consider shopping sustainably this month? The fashion industry can be incredibly wasteful, but you can help take care of the Earth by choosing brands that are producing styles with the environment in mind.
Gap’s Generation Good is on a mission to “design products with better materials and strive to make a positive impact for people and our planet.” The brand does so by creating items that produce less waste, use less water and produce lower emissions, and by using better materials and supporting its workers.
Additionally, Gap uses organic cotton as a primary material. “Farmed without the use of harmful synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, organically grown cotton is better for people and the environment,” the retailer’s website states. Essentially, it’s a win-win.
Also worth noting, you can save big at Gap right now! Through April 22, shoppers can score up to 60% off select styles, plus an extra 10% off regular price styles with code GOSHOP. Gap is also offering steep discounts on denim, and is currently holding its Spring Sale: use code SALE at checkout to take an extra 50% off markdowns.
