Every day in the US an estimated 15.5 million plastic, wire and wood hangers are dumped into landfills every day! World wide an estimated 8 billion hangers goes into landfills every year.
And they don’t lie there quietly either. Plastic hangers made out of polystyrene (6) leach dangerous chemicals such as benzene into our drinking water. Polycarbonate (5) hangers leach bisphenol-A into our ground water. Both can take up to 1,000 years to break down. That’s over 40 generations all for a simple hanger.
