Using a hanger that makes sense. Using virgin plastic for a one use hanger doesn’t make sense. In many store locations plastic is not recycled.

So what to do?

The solution is using a hanger made from a recycled material that is recycled at the retail, or the consumer level. A hanger made from paper fiberboard would be recyclable with cardboard boxes at the store or, if it goes home with the consumer, in their curbside recycling program.

Many paper fiberboard hangers already exist such as the Ditto Ecological Hanger that is non-toxic, made from recycled material and is recyclable at the store or consumer level.
