Item 6- Beige Ribbed Fitted Turtle NeckPosted: September 19, 2011
What? Beige ribbed fitted turtle neck
How long have I had it? 3 years
Where did I get it? Gap
What do I love about it? It goes with everything. It’s comfy. I like the more form-hugging fit. It’s also warm.
Since I learned about ethical issues in the supply chain and the pervasiveness of sweatshop labor, I haven’t purchased anything from Gap (which also means Banana Republic and Old Navy). I like the way their clothes look, but I can’t support their practices. I’ve heard that they’ve improved their practices, but I’m not convinced. At this point, I’m still not comfortable with buying from them. There is room for redemption if companies want to clean up their acts. But, I’m reluctant to throw my support to companies that clean up their business practices due to public outcry, rather than because they want to do the right thing.
