What Should We Do With 3.5 Billion Wire Coat Hangers?

Wire Coat HangerOne billion is a crazy number but 3.5 billion is 3 and 1/2 times crazy. Worldwide, that’s how many wire coat hangers are sent out with our dry cleaned goods each year. It takes 195 million pounds of steel to manufacture that many wire coat hangers and their clothing-protective plastic coating make them difficult to recycle. What should you do with them? According to Earth911, the best thing to do with your stash of coat hangers is to return them to your dry cleaner for reuse. Another option is to check out the amazing work of artist David Mach and maybe send some coat hangers his way.

David Mach builds larger than life sculptures out of all sorts of products and his latest works are constructed out of bundled coat hangers and matches.
