Call Gymboree About Forced Child Labor
Right now, the government of Uzbekistan is continuing to remove millions of children from school and force them to pick cotton.
While many companies have adopted policies related to Uzbek cotton, Gymboree, the children's clothing store, continues to be silent on the ongoing exploitation of children in the cotton industry. Gymboree needs to hear your voice TODAY.
Call Gymboree at 1-800-222-7758 and dial extension 7264 and leave a message (if you experience a problem, dial 0 for the operator).
Here is a sample script:
"As a consumer, I want to be sure that workers are respected in the production of my clothes. Gymboree is one of a handful of major clothing companies that has not taken any action to address forced child labor in Uzbekistan’s cotton industry. This inaction is unacceptable and I expect your company to do more to stop this abuse today. Will you issue a statement opposing forced child labor and commit to stop sourcing Uzbek cotton today?"
