What We’re Doing at Danbury Fair
  • Our Security Staff uses Segways indoors.
  • Many of our retailers now offer shoppers the option of reusable bags.
  • We use green cleaning products at our center wherever and whenever possible.
  • The center has implemented new lighting protocols that allow us to minimize our energy use and lower our carbon footprint without any impact on the shopping experience.
  • We’ve installed energy efficient lighting throughout the common area.
  • We have recycling containers in the food court.
  • We have implemented mall-wide retailer recycling program. All retailers are able to recycle paper and plastic at a facility near the center.
  • Started rooftop replacement program with new HVAC units.  The new design is environmentally friendly and the motors use less energy while providing the same cooling and heating capacity.
