Green clothes hanger a hit
Thursday, January 20, 2011/
Eco-friendly fashion is a growth area that one canny Australian start-up has managed to cash in on.
The Green Hanger intends to change the way we hang our clothes, with the provision of an environmentally friendly clothes hanger.
The founders of the Green Hanger were motivated by the millions of wire and plastic hangers that end up in landfills around the world every year.
An Australian product, the Green Hanger is made from 100% recycled and biodegradable recyclable cardboard. It is therefore the perfect solution for anyone wanting to reduce their impact on the environment.
The Green Hanger has already been embraced by various other countries, and has made appearances at high profile fashion events such as the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.
The founders believe their product has the potential to make the fashion, dry cleaning and retail industries more environmentally conscious.
There are certainly opportunities to develop other eco-friendly concepts within the fashion industry, such as greener storage options and cleaning processes. Why not create an Aussie start-up success story in this sector?
