There is a HUGE but unknown problem in fashion retail distribution, better known as the 'garment on hanger' (GOH) stage. This unseen stage is when garments are transported from factories to stores, before being discarded for branded front of house hangers.

It’s estimated that 150 billion garments are produced globally every year (source: Journal of Cleaner Production). There are currently no figures available for hanger production, on a local or global level. If just two thirds of these garments use GOH, this would mean that an estimated 100 billion hangers are used annually for this stage alone. The majority of these hangers are used once and 85% will end up in landfill, taking more than 1,000 years to degrade. 

Show fashion that you care, and sign this petition to let the industry know that the singular use of plastic hangers in the GOH stage is not sustainable, and very dangerous for our environment. The production of these single-use plastic hangers has to stop! Sign our petition today.
