What we are doing
From water to wash, fiber to factory, the clothes you love to live in are made responsibly and with respect to the planet we all share.
  • Compared to conventional wash methods, our Washwell TM Program uses at least 20% less water and has saved millions of liters of water since 2016. You do good just by wearing our denim. So far, we’ve saved 289 million liters of water. That’s enough to fill 579 million water bottles. BETTER DENIM. BETTER PLANET. WASHWELL TM
  • Our Water Quality Program is designed to ensure our jeans are made in a way that protects local waterways and minimizes impact on the planet.
  • We partner with the Better Cotton Initiative, which trains farmers to use water efficiently, care for the health of soil and natural habitats, reduce use of the most harmful chemicals and respect the rights and wellbeing of workers. Though not physically traceable to end products, Gap has helped to source over 234 million pounds of Better Cotton since 2016 via the Mass Balance system. See bettercotton.org/massbalance for details.
  • Our upcycled and recycled fabrics have reused over 9.8 million standard plastic water bottles.
  • Organic cotton is better for people and the environment because it’s grown without the use of harmful synthetic pesticides and fertilizers.
Empowering and supporting the people we work with and the world is a non-negotiable. It’s part of our brand ethos and it’s simply who we are and what we do on a daily basis.
  • Our Gap Inc. Personal Advancement & Career Enhancement (P.A.C.E.) program is an educational program that helps the women who make our clothes build the skills, knowledge, confidence, and resilience needed to advance in work and life. Every year we donate a portion of our profits to fund P.A.C.E.
  • Our Goal: by 2022 1 million women will have participated in P.A.C.E.
