Old Navy Complaint - Old Navy doesn't reuse/recycle their hangers
I was at their register getting checked out at Old Navy and was helping the cashier de-hanger the clothes I purchased. The cashier asked if I wanted the hangers and I said no. She replied, "We'll just throw them in the trash if you don't take them."
Can you imagine! I had 15 hangers, the person in front of me had bought 3xs as much stuff as I did! I checked around online and apparently Gap Inc (which also owns Banana republic) finds it cheaper to buy new hangers than to reuse the old ones! So not just Old Navy, but The Gap and Banana Republic fill our land fills with all those hangers from the clothes they sell! They have the nerve to preach about 'social responsibility', 'donating' and 'reducing waste' on their website but they don't even bother to find any local second hand stores that could use their hangers or locate recycling centers that can recycle their hangers.
They should take a lesson from Target who reuses their hangers.
