Episode 7: Let's Go to the Mall, Today!


On this episode of The Hand Me Up Club, Lindsay talks with longtime friend and activist, Daniel Dalena. Listen as they travel to the Queens Center Mall and do a field test to see how easy or difficult it would be for the average consumer to find sustainable products and shop at stores with sustainable practices. Listen for the facts, the pleasant surprises, near misses and twists as they make their way through Macy’s, H&M, Forever 21, Timberland, Call it Spring/Aldo, American Eagle and Hollister. - You’ll be surprised!


Here are a few images from our journey in the mall (Featuring but not limited to the Rewash jeans at Macys, recycled tags, sustainable shoe display from Call it Spring and the confusing tag at Hollister!)!
