YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2021-04-20 11:12:03 – USA

In line with parent company Gap Inc.'s proposal that single-use plastic will be banned by 2030, American apparel manufacturer Old Navy announced that plastic bags will be phased out of all of its stores in the United States and Canada.

In agreement with parent company Gap Inc.’s announcement to ban single-use plastic by 2030, American clothing retailer Old Navy announced it would eliminate the use of plastic bags from all its US and Canada stores.

In its North American outlets, all plastic shopping bags will be replaced by paper bags made from 40% post-consumer scrap kraft fiber. Furthermore, the company said that by the end of 2021, it would have recycled and replaced all plastic hangers in stores, and its packaging will include 50% recycled material.

On April 22, to commemorate the 51st anniversary of Earth Day, Old Navy will fund 51 GoFundMe fundraisers from young environmental activists in their neighborhoods.

In collaboration with 11-year-old recycling champion Ryan Hickman, the company has invested in Project3R, Hickman’s charitable group devoted to spreading awareness about recycling to the next generation of young kids.

Ryan Hickman said that he is very concerned about recycling and environmental protection, which is why he is thrilled to be working with the Old Navy to eliminate plastic waste. He adds that they'll work together to increase awareness and help those who are having a positive impact on their communities. He is convinced that if they all work together, they will make a significant difference.
