Today’s consumers expect a lot from the retailers they support. They not only want high-quality products at competitive prices – they also want to know that merchants respect the environment. One way to impress your eco-loving customers is by using sustainable store fixtures, such as sugarcane hangers from Firefly Store Solutions.
Plastic hangers may be commonplace for many businesses, but while they get the job done, they’re hardly good for the environment. Plastic manufacturing often causes pollution, and sometimes, these hangers can’t be recycled after they’ve been used.
Fortunately, there is an alternative for store owners who want a hanger they can feel good about putting in their stores. Sugarcane hangers, made from 50 percent sugarcane and 50 percent reusable plastic, offer an alternative that is both aesthetically pleasing and good for the Earth. They’re also completely biodegradable, meaning you won’t have to worry about them sitting in a landfill for years and years after they’ve served their purpose in your store.
Anytime you make an eco-friendly improvement in your shop, it’s a good idea to reach out to customers to let them know. For example, if you purchase sugarcane hangers, you can send out a message on your social media pages letting shoppers know more about your latest effort to go green and inviting them to come in and take a look themselves. You can also use store signs to grab the attention of shoppers passing by on the street.
For extra visibility, why not use the hangers in a creative sale event? You can let shoppers know that all items hanging on your new eco-friendly hangers are discounted, or you can offer them a different environmentally sound gift with purchase, such as a reusable bag or water bottle. Your customers will appreciate the gesture, and you’ll also bring more traffic in the door.
