Ditto Feature in Waste and Recycling News
Hanging On a New Commodity
JANUARY 25, 2013
One of Ditto's favorite reads, Waste & Recycling News, wrote a lovely feature article on Ditto and the work we're doing keeping plastic retail hangers out of landfills.
SpiritHood Speaks Ditto!
World's Coolest Hood Hangs Green.
SEPTEMBER 19, 2012
Los Angeles company, SpiritHoods, commissioned Ditto to design a sustainable hook that functioned both as a sales devise and for storing the hood at home. It's 100% recycled paper and is being offered along with all online sales. Got a Hood, but no hanger? SpiritHood is offering the Ditto Hangers for only $1 in their accessories page. What's not to love?
Ditto clients know we do much more than just hangers. Take Acorn Slippers, the industry leader in at-home and casual footwear. Ditto designed an entire line of recyclable hangers for their wide line of slippers and shoes. The Ditto hangers were a huge success and actually helped to increase sales.
This time Acorn wanted a bold, countertop Point-of-Purchase (POP) display to promote their new line of Travel Shoes. They’re goal was a display that not only communicated their sustainability initiatives, but visually fit with the hangers we designed for their shoes
The result is a dramatic and eye catching POP Display made from 100% recyclable and compostable paperboard. This unique display ships flat, assembles at the store and stores flat in small storerooms. The signage can be easily replaced for special promotions or new products. Incredibly strong, amazingly lightweight, the Ditto Display uses minimal material and show off the slippers like no other display can.
Acorn plans on launching the new displays in January of 2013. Stay tuned!
