These Microgarden stainless steel clothes pegs are a great alternative to plastic pegs that break easily, and a great addition to my zero waste, earth friendly laundry routine.
I live close to the ocean so the little metal springs on plastic pegs always ends up rusting, and the plastic gets brittle so they break easily. These Microgarden pegs are made from marine grade 316 stainless steel so I can even leave them outside without a worry.
Microgarden sell 2 types of stainless steel clothes pegs. If you live close to the ocean like i do, then definitely get the marine grade 316 and if not then the 304 (cheaper) will work perfectly. The pegs come in a reusable cotton drawstring bag (20 per bag), and each stainless steel pegs made from a single piece of wire, which means it won’t break or come apart. I honestly think I’ll never have to replace these, so even if they cost much more than plastic versions, these will reduce landfill waste and save money in the long run. And they are so much prettier.
Microgarden is a local small business based in Cape Town, that was created by Kerry Engelen who is passionate about sustainability. Kerry stocks a variety of products that will help you to live a more sustainable life.
