When Macy’s in SF stopped using realistic male mannequins like this in their window displays in their men’s store —-
And instead started using mannequins similar to this:
They collected all the realistic ones (over 20 of them) and stored them in their backroom for a few years.
Then one day, they realized that there was no reason for them to keep storing mannequins that they were not going to use.
So that is when they called Mannequin Madness to recycle the mannequins. We provide this service to retailers to keep them from throwing their unwanted mannequins in the landfill.
Here are two key members of the visual team in the men’s department.
Not only are they handsome, creative and adorable. But they are socially conscious as they made the decision to recycle, not toss the mannequins.
As we collected the mannequins from the visual team at Macy’s we presented them with our Environmental Excellence award
. (That’s my husband Jay presenting the award)
This is a classic case of a win/win situation. Their unwanted mannequins will be sold or rented to others, often to businesses or non-profits who could normally afford to buy a brand new version of this type of mannequin.
