Retailer Offers and Details

Did you know that many of your favorite shopping destinations here at our center are working toward a more sustainable future? Check out what they're doing:


7 For All Mankind
Shop Better for All Mankind featuring more responsible materials from around the world including recycled yarns, hemp, Tencel™ Modal, LENZING™, ECOVERO™, and more.

It may sound odd, but some of Aesop’s bottles are made from plastic, rather than glass. This was not a decision made lightly but is a solution to our practical packaging problems—it is also a little-known fact that plastic bottles have a lower carbon footprint than their glass counterparts. Most of the plastic used is recycled PET, which consists of at least 97% recycled material. Our recycled PET is made up of household plastic waste. These bottles have a much lower footprint than a vessel made entirely of virgin materials, and they meet our product performance needs perfectly. By the end of 2021, 89% of their plastic bottles were made from recycled PET, and they aim to use at least 50% recycled content across our entire plastic packaging range by 2025.

With incremental changes for right now, and larger goals for the future, AllSaints' sustainability efforts are always growing. They recognize they have a responsibility towards our planet and the people involved in making their clothes, so they’ve developed a new uniform using recycled yarns, responsible wools, vegetable-tanned leathers, and innovative water-saving techniques.

Made-to-order clothing is a much more efficient and sustainable model than ready-to-wear clothing for one very important reason. When creating garments that are custom-made for each individual, Indochino eliminates the production of surplus items that are disposed of at the end of a season if they're not purchased. In the rare event that there are surplus items, they take special care to ensure they’re donated to local charities.

Johnny Was
A portion of all Johnny Was Active Collection sales are donated to Planet Bee Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to educating children and adults about bee conservation.

Louis Vuitton
Client Care & Repair workshops around the world ensure that all Louis Vuitton products can last a lifetime and even be passed from generation to generation. The possibility of future reparations to prolong an item’s lifespan is considered from the very first step of designing. To this end, workshops anticipate the need to preserve spare parts, which, when necessary, are carefully used to repair items without using new materials, reducing the need for additional raw materials. Bring your empty fragrance bottle to select locations to refill at the proprietary fragrance fountain.

When your shoes can't handle another mile, trip up the court, or cut across the field, Nike wants them back. Recycle athletic shoes at the end of their life, giving them a new life. Just drop your used shoes at a participating Nike retail store. All brands of athletic sneakers are accepted, but sandals, dress shoes, boots, or shoes with metal (like cleats or spikes) are not.
