"Mannequins are made of materials that do not biodegrade so they should not be put in landfills. My business is part of the circular economy helping to reduce the environmental footprint of the retail industry.

Since Brown and Black communities are most directly impacted by pollution from landfills, I am committed to contributing to environmental justice. "
