Eco-Friendly Hangers - Use Them?

I am curious to know if you use or would use an eco-friendly hanger? What brand? How much? What would you be willing to pay for them? What would you use them for besides clothing items? Just trying to see what other think about them. Trying to decide if I should purchase some. 

Thanks!!!  

Re: Eco-Friendly Hangers - Use Them?

  • Mine are all used; that's eco-friendly.
    I guess i'm not sure what you mean by "eco-friendly" hangers... are they made of post-consumer waste?
    Also what do you mean regarding other purposes for them?  Other than actual clothing i hang jackets, bags and scarves.  Aside from that i can't imagine what else they might be useful for.
    Lastly, if you already have hangers that meet your needs, it would be less eco-friendly to purchase new replacements than to continue using what you have.  If you need to expand, but want them to match, i'm sure you'll remember to donate your old ones :)

    Mine are all used; that's eco-friendly. Yes using them all is eco-friendly. :-) 
    I guess i'm not sure what you mean by "eco-friendly" hangers... are they made of post-consumer waste? Not wire or plastic hangers. 


    Also what do you mean regarding other purposes for them? Hanging other items besides clothes like towels or rugs or blankets or random stuff?  Other than actual clothing i hang jackets, bags and scarves.  Aside from that i can't imagine what else they might be useful for.

    Do you use a dry cleaner for anything? Recycle there?

    I'm pretty sure she meant "used" as opposed to "new." Not "used" as opposed to "hanging empty in the closet."

    Yep :)
    I love how invariable language is, though leaving it open for so many interpretations.

  • It's hard for me to imagine needing more hangers than we have, but I guess as DS grows he'll need adult ones. I've never seen eco-friendly ones, though I can see how plastic ones made from recycled materials or wood ones from reclaimed wood, etc would qualify. I'd consider buying them, but I wouldn't want to pay much for hangers when you can find them on craigslist/from stores/ etc for free. Most of ours are just the cheap-o plastic ones that we've had for years (and most of them came from our closets as kids).
