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 Nexgen Packaging, a worldwide leader in apparel branding products, 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.

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 Nexgen Packaging 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.
