Win 12 Recycled EcoHangers

ecohanger-1.jpgOh, wire hangers, how I hate thee!

A much more earth-friendly alternative to wire hangers is the EcoHanger. It’s made from 100 percent recycled paper, and when its closet life is over it’s 100% recyclable too.

The EcoHanger was proven stronger than wire hangers in lab tests. If you’re tired of receiving wire hangers with your dry cleaning, suggest this greener alternative. It’s made in the US, unlike wire hangers that are often made by poorly paid workers in other countries. Also, recycled paper is a renewable resource, and these hangers create more demand for recycled paper.

ecohanger-2.jpgYou can try out a 12-pack of the We Love Our Planet series for free if you’re a contest winner. Chances are pretty good since EcoHangers has agreed to give away four 12-packs.

That means four of you who comment on this post will be shipped a very awesome junk creation — 12 recycled clothes hangers! I’ve also linked to Bloggy Giveaway this week, so go there to see what else is going on in the blog contest world.

It’s really easy to enter this cool contest:

ecohanger-3.jpg•Leave a comment on this post telling me why you hate wire hangers. Here’s why I hate them: If you drop one on the floor, it really hurts to step on it later. I’ve gotten several painful foot scratches in the past that way. That’s why I haven’t had wire hangers in years.

•Enter before midnight CST on Saturday, April 26. Four winners will be randomly selected. Each winner will receive a 12-pack of EcoHangers. Winners will be announced on April 27.

ecohanger-4.jpg•Please note that this contest is open only to residents of the continental US.

Good luck, and don’t forget to tell me in comments why you hate wire hangers.

      I think it is the Mommy Dearest movie that forever scared my mind. I’ve never ever used a wire hanger in my adult life, I even take plastic hangers to the dry cleaners! These would be a great way to be more green!

    • Cindi

      Hi, I have not used wire hangers for several years. I use plastic ones. Wire ones can be dangerous, they leave hanger marks on clothes and they can even leave rust stains! Please enter me in your drawing for these wonderful hangers. Thanks,Cindi

      I hate wire hangers because t have pocked holes in many sweaters with them.

      I hate that they leave rust stains. I found out this the hard way. Needless to say, I pitched all of my wire hangers long time ago. :)

    • kate5405

      Yes, Joan Crawford scarred me for life too–”no more wire hangers”. My hubby still uses wire ones but knows better than to use them on my clothes. Wire hangers leave marks in your clothes. The only things they were ever good for was opening a car door when you locked your keys inside.

      I hate them because they are weak and they bend and get misshapen! These sound really cool, thank you!

    • http://www.northofthe49.com Michelle

      I hat wire hangers because you can’t use them to hold anything that is heavier. They always bend out of shape. I must say that I love the designs of the hangers above.

    • Hilary

      As a college student, it’s REALLY hard to be eco-friendly and still be able to afford to eat. I brought all of my parents’ dry cleaning hangers to college, and they, um…well lets just say i tried to destroy them before they destroyed me clothes. The few things that I *have* to hang up are all misshapen.

      And yeah, thats why I am never using them in my house when I get married and have kids :-)

    • Stacy

      The wire hangers always seem to ruin my sweaters.

    • Christina

      I hate wire hangers because they get tangled together so easily.

    • Joanna

      The worst thing about wire hangers is that if you put more than one together anywhere but hanging in the closet they become an eternally entwined mess!

      I don’t hate wire hangers, but they are not as good for hanging sweaters. (how would you get your car door unlocked without them? Or hold up your muffler until you can get it fixed? LOL)

      We mostly use plastic hangers, but they break so easily, I’d love to try these.

      There are lots of reasons I hate wire hangers. They get tangled too easily, they get bent out of shape too easily, they get stuck in stuff, they leave creases on my clothes, they rust, or the paint flakes, they’re flimsy. I hate ‘em! I hope I win the cool ones you’re giving away!

      We have become a “green family” over the past several years.

      I don’t like wire hangers because they leave those little “nipples” on the arms of my tops.

      I also send the hangers back to the dry cleaners to “recycle” them (my husband HAS to wear suit and tie on the daily basis and apparently my ironing isn’t up to snuff)

      I hate them because you can’t put anything thicker than a light shirt on them or they bend up or get warped.

      Wire hangers bend and lose their shape too easily. While that’s great when you need to make a lock-picking device, it’s pretty annoying when you’re trying to do laundry.

      Hmmm, these would be fun to try. Unfortunately I can’t jump on the hatin’ bandwagon because I actually like my wire hangers. I hang dry a lot of stuff and the wire hold up better than anything else. Paper wouldn’t work so well wet, would it?
      Plus, they take up less space in my closet than the thick plastic ones… and you know space in closets is a premium!

    • http://crunchygreenmom.blogspot.com Suzanne Bastien

      I hate wire hangers because they can’t be trusted. In the dead of night the jumpers in the group make their way out of the closet and position themselves on the floor so when the unsuspecting human arises and tries to walk across the floor…the trap is sprung. You step in one. Now hopping, you step into another, soon you’re on the floor completely their captive and swearing you won’t use them to try to open the locked car door next time. Turns out they hate being all twistyed and then having to listen to a barrage of swear words because someone locked their keys in the car. Anyway, this is just one of many reasons why I have learned to distrust wire hangers.

      I don’t like wire hangers at all! I often dry my clothes by hanging them up on a line, some of my clothes require me to hang them on hangers first – and then put on a line. If I use wire hangers they pull on the clothes, stretching them out and the clothes dry funky looking.

      I’ve love to win these eco hangers. Wire hangers are not very good at all. I recently covered some with recycled plastic bag yarn. It worked well to prevent the clothing article not to slide off after it was covered. Also no rust worries either once they are covered.

      Wire hangers are not for me. I haven’t used one since I was in grade school I think because I really hate it when the plastic peels off and the metal part leaves rust stains on my uniforms! Who would want to go to school with rust stains in his/her white uniform? And yeah. Did I already mention that I had gotten quite a number of scratches back when I had been using wire hangers? That is also one part I really hate.

      I do not like wire hangers for hanging clothes. They make deep long wrinkles in skirts and dresses (because of the way they hang) and mess up the shoulders. Hangers are easily bent out of shape and they also get tangled up with each other. They are very good for other things such as fishing things out of drains (and toilet?); for getting into your car when you’ve locked the keys in it (but not always); to make a makeshift tailpipe bracket thingy(?) and other car stuff; you can also make lovely door wreaths by shaping them round and tying many bits of plastic, string or some other materials (this can be tedious and time consuming but the result can be rather stunning)(?). Like I said, wire hangers are good for many things-just not hanging clothes with. Also-never hang a wet shirt or sweater on a wire hanger. It’s hard getting rust out of your clothes. I could go on but I’ll just leave it for now…………….
