Guests were also given Ditto Hangers to hang up those new clothes in what is a brilliant environmentally conscious way. These sturdy hangers not only will hold your clothes, but you can brand them or just write a note about what is on that hanger, but the best part is that they don't fill up landfills like the millions of plastic, metal and wood hangers do.
