Josh Spear Writes about Ditto

International trend setter writes about saving the world with Ditto Hangers

September 8, 2007

It’s estimated that 8-10 billion un-recyclable plastic and wire hangers are wasted every year, and they end up clogging our landfills, requiring more than 1,000 years to break down. Kind of a big deal, that’s like 4.6 Empire State Buildings full of plastic hangers every single year. And it gets worse — those white plastic hangers in your closet also leak all sorts of dangerous chemicals into the ground water. Mega scary.

Until now.

In comes Ditto Hangers, a global company with an incredible and honorable mission: Save the world with hangers. They’re solving the worldwide and much forgotten problem by designing hangers made from recycled materials; papers and plastics. Vegetable inks add to the environmentally friendly ingredient list. The 100% recyclable paper and PET plastic hangers are meant for retail environments and non-toxic dry cleaners, but I say we all could use a little more green in our closets. No word on ordering direct from their site, but keep your eyes peeled for them near you — word is they’re coming to GAP in the states.

They were also recently nominated finalists at the Design Excellence Awards for their Ditto PETE CLIP Hanger for Eco Design. Congrats!
