HangerPak: Shirt Packaging Doubling as a Hanger

May 25th, 2011 by retail design blog

Here’s a cool and innovative packaging idea that does more with less. This concept called HangerPak is the brainchild of designer Steve Haslip. He explaines how he came up with the idea:
“I buy t-shirts online and they always come wrinkled and I always run out of coat-hangers. So I designed a sustainable, reusable way to send and keep your t-shirts.”

The Hangerpak could conceivably be made out of any post consumer recycled material like cardboard or recycled plastic, and when you are done with the hanger it can be recycled again.
The “Greeness” of hanging your t-shirts on a hanger is definitely a little questionable, but I’ll be honest, I’m guilty. Obviously using no hanger and minimal packaging would be the greenest route, but I love this innovative way making things we make serve several functions.
