Stainless steel clothes pegs – the better choice
Hanging laundry outside to air dry on a sunny day can be one of life’s simple pleasures. But too often clothespegs made from plastic or wood will slip out of place, snap or go mouldy. The plastic pegs usually end up in landfill and will never break down. Some even end up polluting our precious waterways and oceans. Every little decision you make can impact on our environment and one way to reduce your plastic consumption is to invest in long lasting household items made from non-plastic materials. Time to consider stainless steel clothes pegs.
These stainless steel clothes pegs are strong, this is because they are made from one piece of high quality stainless steel. The wire will not snap or break. In a breeze, the stainless steel clothes pegs will securely hold your laundry to the line, and the pegs can be left outside on the line in inland areas (if you live near the sea, it would be best to bring them inside when not in use).
Attractive in design, the pegs can be used for craft and home projects too! They’re wonderful for holding together school notices or use them in the pantry holding packets closed (yes, product tested by the kids…)

*Normally, plastic items can take up to 1000 years to decompose in landfills. Plastic that breaks down in the ocean forms a chemical toxic pollutant. Did you know that better efficiency in process technology has also lowered the amount of energy required to produce stainless steel? Even when stainless steel is not recycled, it will have no detrimental effect to the soil or groundwater. 🙂
