UK recycler First Mile has launched a new plastic clothing hanger recycling programme to reduce the number of hangers ending up in landfill. The service will give retailers an easy and effective route to recycling unwanted hangers. Inditex UK has already signed up for the programme. The hangers will be processed by recycling partner Endurmeta in Deeside.

According to First Mile, one tonne of recycled plastic saves two tonnes of carbon dioxide when compared to virgin equivalent.

“The impact of fashion on the environment has been a hot topic in recent months and we’re committed to doing what we can to make it easier for businesses to be more sustainable. It’s great that many retailers want to recycle coat hangers, with many also operating schemes where customers can bring them to be recycled,” British media reports quoted Bruce Bratley, founder and chief executive officer of First Mile, as saying.

Founded in 2004, First Mile serves 25,000 customers and recycles 65,000 tonnes of material each year, including plastic, glass and cardboard. (DS)
