Banana Republic makes a sustainable statement

In fashion, we're often asked to think outside of the box. But one brand is thinking outside of the box and the bottle.

Banana Republic's summer collection is inspired by the beach — a coastline of sand and sun.

The beach was the inspiration behind artful installations in shop windows this season, recycled from store materials. Cardboard boxes from the store were crafted into pieces shaped like the sun, waves, and a map of California.

Other stores highlight water use and biodegradable bottles as a more Earth-friendly alternative to plastic. Recycled water bottles from Gap Inc. headquarters are now installations of their own in U.S. flagships.
