The 25-year-old contest which is sponsored by the Recycling Council of Ontario, rewards companies achievements in environmental sustainability and waste reduction innovations — two areas that E-Hanger excels in. This year’s event special guest speaker will be the Hon. John Gerretsen, Minister of the Environment.
The E-Hanger is manufactured from post consumer waste board and is printed with eco vegetable soya based inks. Its durability and eco-friendly properties have made the product an ideal replacement for the millions of non-recyclable wire clothes hangers that are dumped into Canadian landfills each year.
E-Hanger’s not only good for the environment, it’s also free to dry cleaners , thanks to the advertisers who market products directly on the hangers . Not only does this allow marketers to get their message out to thousands of people around the country, but they can do it in an environmentally conscious way.
Nicole Atananasoaie, E-Hanger’s vice-president, is thrilled to be competing in such a prestigious program. “We’re committed to reducing the number of wire hangers ending up in Canadian landfills every year,” she says. “So being a part of this event can only help the cause.”
The company is also dedicated to creating more green jobs. As E-Hanger grows more and more people will be able to contribute to an eco-friendly economy both directly with the organization and indirectly, as graphic artists, sales professionals and others who work for the businesses that advertise with E-Hanger.
With people increasingly turning to environmentally sustainable products, E-Hanger’s product will find its way into thousands of homes, reducing landfill waste in the process.
