No Wire Hangers EVER


There’s nothing worse than coming back from the dry cleaners (organic, of course), arms laden with a stack of clothes, only to have to contend with the tangle of metal hangers that are standard issue among cleaners nationwide. Of course, you can recycle them, but most people don’t, which is how 85% of the hangers used by cleaners and retail clothing companies end up in landfills every year. That’s where Ditto Hangers comes in. The California-based company has created two lines of intelligently designed hangers, made from 100% certified recycled paper and printed with vegetable inks, and from 100% PET plastic, the same recyclable material used to make water bottles. Currently, the hangers are only available to retailers, non-toxic dry cleaners, and the green hospitality industry, but look for them to become available to consumers soon. Finally, you can say goodbye to wire hangers forever.
