Ditto Hangers Announces the World's First 100% Recyclable Clip Hanger

Ditto Hangers is proud to introduce their new, intelligently designed, 100% recyclable Ditto CLIP Hangers. These beautifully designed products are unlike any on the market, being made entirely out of single material, 100% recyclable PET plastic (the same plastic used to make water bottles). Even the hooks, clips and springs are made of PET, the most recycled plastic world-wide.

The typical clip hangers (used to hang pants and skirts) are made of multiple materials, such as plastic, wood, metal, vinyl and/or rubber. These materials are extremely difficult to identify and separate in recycling systems, have little value on the secondary market and typically end up in landfills, taking from 100 to 1000 years to decompose.

"We designed our hangers starting at the end of their useful life to make sure they are all easily recycled and stay in the material loop." Says President and CEO Gary Barker. "Single material design is what makes these designs so unique and logical, unlike the typical, hard to recycle polystyrene or treated wood hanger found in most retail clothing stores".

The clip hanger joins the line of highly designed Ditto PET Plastic Hanger line that recently won two first prizes from the International Design Awards for their innovative design and material choice. The first prizes were awarded in the main category of Sustainable Living/Environmental Preservation and the sub category of Urban Sustainable Design.
