FOREVER PEGS® - The Best Eco Friendly Clothes Pegs in NZ

Stainless Steel Clothes Pegs are an eco friendly alternative to plastic clothes pegs. They are durable, reusable and they last for a long time. At Bento Ninja we have 2 sizes and grades of stainless steel clothes pegs & sock hangers. But how do you choose the peg for you? Which size do you need and what's the difference between 201, 304 and 316? What does that even mean? Let me explain the world of best, plastic-free and eco-friendly forever pegs to you. 

We have different sizes, different strengths and different quality stainless steel of pegs & sock hangers at Bento Ninja. It all depends on your needs, where you live, what you plan to use the pegs for and how you plan to store the pegs. 

Generally the higher the number of stainless steel the better the quality and less corrosive it is. The bigger the wire diameter the stronger the peg, so it is better for heavier and thicker clothes or in the windy regions.

Fab-tastic Products & Service

I had already had a friend rave to me about Bento Ninja & used the in-cup tea strainer, which are so good - no more leaky bits of tea escaping into the cup and I can stick any of my garden herbs in there for a great cup of tea!
The peg rack and pegs are wonderful. Yes, they're pricey compared to pastic but the feel good factor of not finding plastic pegs blown around in my garden & having them snap on me mid-peg is well worth it. Also knowing that my washing stays on the line in these surprisingly windy spring days.
The rainbow pegs and cups are so pretty, they make great christmas presents for my eco friendly family members :-)
Best of all is the service and care to attention in the packaging. Not a shred of plastic anywhere, even the tape on the box was paper - so the box goes straight onto the garden as mulch.
The planet will thank you for making this investment!


It's a great tool to have at home - useful and will be used a lot for socks, masks and reusable pads. We'll made.

Bought a pair and thought these were a great length so bought a second pair. Good compact size that fits inside lunchboxes.

Bought the large one at first and then decided that we needed the medium one too. It’s a great size for leftovers, or storing prepped veg. Love these
