We all know plastic is not good for the environment and especially marine life. But when making decisions to reduce your own waste footprint it can seem overwhelming and its often hard to know where to start. I recently made the switch from plastic to stainless steel and here’s why.
If you leave your pegs on the line like we do, you probably have a mix of faded, partially snapped, rotted and plastic segments scattered through your grass. break. They also have a tendency to rust at the springs, which can lead to rust staining on your washing.
Traditional wooden pegs are a better option than plastic, but still have their issues. They are either made of birch, beech or maple because these hardwoods are durable, have a uniform light-colored grain, and do not bleed tannin stains onto clothing. However, good quality traditional wooden pegs are hard to come by, and the majority of wooden pegs are now made with cheap imported materials. Even quality wooden pegs, have the problem of springs – they eventually rust, which can lead to rust staining on your washing, and the springs will eventually break.
Stainless steel pegs come with a life time guarantee to back up their claims. In a world where products are built to fail and only last for a short time Stainless Steel Pegs are a refreshing change back to a time when products were built to last.
A lifelong solution is a purchase for life.
