Considering that only 15% of the 8 billion polystyrene or polycarbonate clothes hangers manufactured per year are recycled, the much-depended on closet accessory has a major environmental footprint. Enter HangSavvy, they're customizable, 100% recyclable cardboard hangers offer an eco-friendly alternative to the old wire hanger--3.5 billion, of which, are dumped into U.S. landfills every year.

HangSavvy's hangers are made with recycled paper waste, have the same lifespan as regular clothes hangers, and they can hold weights of up to 22 pounds. Find them at Yanko Design Shop; a premium pack of 10 hangers is available for $39.99.
