Ditto PET Clothing Hangers

Lead Designers
Entry Description

Ditto plastic hangers are made of 100% polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which is the plastic commonly used to produce water bottles. The innovative design features a single material construction, eliminating wire hooks and other materials that typically make recycling hangers prohibitive. PET is the most highly recycled of all plastics and is easily processed by end-users, recyclers and intermediaries.
