Garments On Ditto

Saving the planet, and your costs – from start to finish

Garments On Ditto is a door-to-door program for sustainably shipping garments on Ditto Hangers. In strategic partnership with OIA Global, a leading provider of worldwide logistics, packaging, and materials sourcing, Garments On Ditto is engineered to make shipping on hangers far more efficient and replaces the billions of one-use, virgin plastic hangers going into landfills every year.


Reimagining Garments On Hangers

The Garments On Ditto Program is the first of its kind in the world. This innovative program has been engineered to make toxic and wasteful Garments On Hangers programs more efficient, more economical and with zero waste.

The Garment On Ditto Program provides:

  • Strategic hanger sourcing in regions closest to client’s vendors
  • Regional distribution channels and warehousing
  • Large-scale production and warehousing
  • Full design of all hangers for shipping, display and marketing
  • Online ordering system and working manual for all vendors
  • Annual programs for fulfillment efficiencies

Ditto and OIA Global has assembled a collection of sustainability, logistics, and design experts to create the world’s first sustainable hanger shipping and retail program for vendors around the globe.
