Give your hangers to local dry cleaners to help the environment

This is a small way to help the environment, but it may resonate with the primary readers of this blog. After all, most of us have pretty hefty dry cleaning bills. We had a ton of coat hangers piled up from years of dry cleaning and buying clothes. It must have been nearly 100, no insubstantial amount in terms of plastic and metal that would have clogged a landfill for a thousand years.

We took them over to a local Vietnamese dry cleaner, who gladly accepted them for re-use. While the big chain we sometimes use generally has their own branded hangers (the metal ones with a paper wrap), the small ones are glad to cut their costs by re-using your old hangers.

We all have to chip in any way we can!
