Finders Keepers will collect wire hangers from April 20 through April 25.

People throw away their wire hangers because they do not know that they are bad for the environment and that it is just as important to recycle wire hangers as it is paper or plastic. Our goal is to not only provide our customers with a place to drop off their unwanted wire hangers, but to also educate them on different ways to dispose of their hangers that are safe for the environment

With Earth Day around the corner on April 22, Finders Keepers is participating in the National Association of Resale and Thrift Shop’s (NARTS) Save the Earth Campaign. From April 20 to April 25 Finders Keepers will be collecting wire hangers to prevent them from ending up in landfills. Hangers may be dropped off at all three Finders Keepers locations: Fashions, Boutique and Furnishings.

According to Hanger Network, more than 3.5 billion wire hangers are dumped into United States landfills a year and it takes more than 100 years for these wire hangers to decompose. “People throw away their wire hangers because they do not know that they are bad for the environment and that it is just as important to recycle wire hangers as it is paper or plastic. Our goal is to not only provide our customers with a place to drop off their unwanted wire hangers, but to also educate them on different ways to dispose of their hangers that are safe for the environment,” said Bonnie Kallenberg, Owner of Finders Keepers.

Consignment stores around the nation will participate in NARTS’ Save the Earth Campaign. NARTS’ goal is to collect a total of 100,000 wire hangers and save them from the landfills. Finders Keepers will donate their collected wire hangers to a local dry cleaner and whatever is left will be taken to a metal scrap yard.
