Description

We all know how important it is to recycle plastic. Well it’s worth listing the reasons, sorry if I sound like I’m preaching.

Why is it important to recycle plastic?

  •  to reduce the volume of plastic waste that goes into landfill
  • to reduce the amount of plastic that gets blown into the ocean en route to landfill sites
  • to reduce plastic pollution
  • to conserve resources
  •  to reduce the amount of energy used producing items from virgin plastic

However, it’s only any good recycling plastic if we buy products made of recycled plastic. It’s called “closing the loop” – the loop being the three arrows on the recycling logo:

We can keep dutifully sorting and sending our plastics to be recycled but unless we buy products made of recycled plastic it will soon pile up into more unwanted waste, or get burned. Some argue that burning plastic is an efficient way of retrieving the energy from it, but even the most efficient incineration plants and scrubbers can’t remove all the toxins that are released into the atmosphere as a consequence of burning. So it’s important to buy products made of recycled plastic, as well as ensuring all our waste plastic is recycled.

Anyway enough of that, you just wanted to know about the pegs, right?

These EcoForce recycled plastic clothes pegs are excellent pegs in their own right. They have a “hurricane force grip” – though it’s not advised to test this by putting your laundry out in a hurricane. We are advocates of hanging laundry outdoors but there are some conditions where it’s better to have it inside! They don’t have any metal components so there are no springs to break or leak rust stains over your laundry. They are frost proof and UV stable. All qualities you need to look for in a clothes peg. And they are pink and blue. The ones in the photo are green and yellow, as I’ve been using these pegs for years and this is the colour they used to be. Now the ones we’ve been sent to sell you are pink and blue which are just as cheerful looking.

To summarise, these EcoForce Hurricane Force Grip recycled plastic clothes pegs are:

  • 93% recycled plastic
  • 100% metal free
  • 100% more grip than a stnadard peg
  • 100% washable in dishwasher or washing machine
  • 100% recyclable

They are the perfect companion for your Laundry Mac for hanging your laundry outside to flap cheerily in the breeze!

    Good value and strong.

    I have bought these pegs again last ones only got a few left which i bought 30 yrs ago, there the next only strongest plastic peg ive ever used, 2 different line slots to keep a tight hold on yr washing, very strong and nice colours, showed them next to a pen to give you an idea of the size, other picture with the green pegs i bought 30 yrs ago, if these ones last as long as the last ones these will last till i die now , proper value for money, highly recommend them.

    Brilliant

    Really firm grip. The jaws are shaped for both thin items and also heavy items on the line. Should last for ages

    And of course recycled plastic. Really glad I bought them

    Perfect pegs for windy areas

    These pegs are the only ones that will hold my washing on the line …….. as I live in a very exposed area . They are very good but the abuse from the wind takes its toll so they do not last terribly long and become a bit stretched so that they do not hold thinner material but having said that , well worth buying and I will recommend and buy again .

    The best pegs ever

    I have been using these pegs for 3 years. Where we live we have gale force winds frequently and these pegs are what they say ‘hurricane force grip’. I would strongly recommend these pegs.

    GREAT PEGS.

    These really are good pegs. I have a large covered area to the side of my house so I can put my washing out even if it’s raining. Often it is very windy and the washing remains securely on the line. There are two places the peg can be ‘pinched’ onto the line depending on the thickness of the garment. Whilst I love the look of the old wooden ones these are far kinder to the washing and no staining from rusty hinged bits.

    Great pegs try them out

    I am really happy with these pegs l tried them out on a double douvet cover on my washing line and they stayed where l put them no concertiering of fabric therefore less ironing for me .

  8. Irina P

    Overall good

    I’ve been using these for some months now, and overall I am pleased with my purchase. Some of them though started to lose their grip and I had to throw away some (maybe 3-4). Wind tested (super wind I would say) and they behaved honourably. Overall, better that any other I have had before.

    Best Clothes Pegs Used To Date And Cheap

    Having ordered some a few years ago, needed some more not to say that there was anything wrong with the previous ones, just needed more. My parents had bought some general cheap ones that just don’t last and break after time, which were the spring type ones. So I ordered some more for less than a fiver and what can I say they work, are very strong and durable and keep clothes on even in windy weather. Such a simple yet effective design.

  10. Supasparkle

    Excellent

    When I opened the box I was initially disappointed as I thought the packaging looked like something I’d buy in a £1 shop, but I was pleasantly surprised at how great these pegs are! They are strong and sturdy, and I feel they will be hard wearing as there are no springs etc. I hate pegs that move around on the line making the washing look untidy and not dry evenly, but once these are on the line they don’t budge. I’m sure they will last a long time, but when I do need more these will be the pegs I purchase.

  11. Bluebell Hill

    Survived 50-60mph winds when I forgot to take the washing in overnight

    These pegs are incredible! I accidentally left my washing out last night and there were huge winds – gust of up to 50-60 mph and I was convinced the washing would have all flown off but when I went to check everything was still there. Really good, sturdy pegs; I bought them a year ago and they are still going strong

  12. TLS Design

    Brilliant pegs... :0)

    2nd lot purchased and they work very well.
    Holds the clothes on the line very well and the larger hole is good for towels ect

    Very good in strong winds when you use the smaller hole, it clicks when you press the peg down.

    No rusting… bonus

  13. Tomato Ketchup

    Strong and no metal parts to rust

    I received pink and blue pegs. I was a little unconvinced at the pegs strength initially, but my worries proved unfounded. The pegs are really strong and I love that they are one piece, with no metal to rust and mark my clothes. I bought 72 and they only half fill my Brabantia peg bag… So I’m going to buy another bag.

  14. Jemma

    Is it sad to get SO excited about pegs?!

    I love these pegs, they feel well made unlike my old plastic pegs with metal springs, they have strong grip and I can see these lasting me a long time. I also love that they are made from 93% recycled plastic and don’t have any metal in them at all!

    Best pegs ever!!!

  15. sarahlou

    Understated efficiency!

    After reading the reviews, I chose these clothes pegs. On initial opening, I didn’t think they were anything special (apart from their green credentials. However, as soon as I hung a large load of (mainly white) washing out, I was really pleased with these pegs. They grip the washing really well and I had no worries about rust marks on the clothes. I would really recommend this product!

  16. Rosemary H.

    A good grip!

    Have used these for years but can now only seem to get them online; they are brilliant as they keep my washing firmly on the line up here in windy Scotland . Would not buy any other sort so that tells you how good they are. Highly recommend and thank you!
