Don’t imediately throw out all of your current plastic or wire hangers all at once, but considerreplacing them as they break with with eco-friendly hangers made from bamboo, corn, or wheat. It’s the greener lifestyle option – bamboo is a highly renewable plant, and options made from wheat are actually compostable. Petroleum-based plastic, on the other hand, never fully biodegrades.
Also, try taking the gazillion wire hangers you’ve accumulated from years of dry cleaning back to the cleaners – most will gladly reuse them! Check out your local Wal-Mart or Target to purchase your new green hangers.
