Pretty much everyone is going green these days, and now Macy’s is getting in on the action. Its most impressive effort? Replacing the 300 million clear petroleum-based plastic hangers it uses each year with matte black ones fashioned from recycled material.
The transition should be complete one year from now, and it’s just one of the big changes the retailer is making. Macy’s is also in the process of installing LED lightbulbs in its stores, as well as eliminating foam food packaging and using recycled paper napkins. A few stores are even getting self-serve electric car charging stations!
Oh wait, and did you catch that 300 million hangers a year bit? That’s maybe the part that fascinates us the most. SO MANY HANGERS!
