I’m known in the industry as the ‘Mannequin Lady’ in Lincolnshire who will rehome large quantities of mannequins. I’ve made this my mission over the last twelve years as the materials they are made of cannot be recycled and they do not decompose. We are known for renovation of existing stock and the sustainable and ethical ‘disposal’ of mannequins. Over the years I have kept over 20,000 out of landfill and out of the incinerator.
We ‘recycle’ them by renovating and putting back on your shop floor, or in the case of what we like to call ‘last years darlings’ by adding them to our hire catalogue or sell parts on to artists for upcycling into over 101 different uses. We currently have 25 on long term loan in an Ethnology museum in Switzerland. So it is possible that they can go on to lead very interesting lives and get good gigs too.
In the case of really damaged bits, we pass these on at Halloween, for garden decorations and as daft as it may sound – this is true recycling as the bits come out of peoples sheds year after year.
We are working as committed sustainable partners with several high street names, accepting new, used and damaged mannequins. We have signed up and in all cases have agreed upon confidentiality where requested.
So what to do now? It really is as easy as having a chat and booking your truck into our yard with Roz on 07757513584.
