Sustainability in Action

Here at Macy’s we’re putting our money where our mouth is. Our commitment to the environment isn’t some short term publicity stunt. It’s a major shift in the way we operate companywide. No improvement is too big or too small, so long as it moves us closer to becoming the most sustainable company that we can be.

Did you know? We’ve replaced clear plastic hangers with environmentally friendly matte black hangers for most apparel merchandise. The new black hanger can be manufactured using recycled plastic materials saving on the new petroleum-based resins used to make clear hangers. Macy’s uses nearly 300 million hangers per year in its stores.
