Hills in Hollywood

News Photo - Hills in Hollywood

The iconic Australian clothes line, the Hills Hoist, is about to hit Hollywood. The maker of the Hills Hoist, Hills Industries has had their Quatro washing line included in eco-friendly bags for presenters and winners at the 2009 Critics' Choice Awards held in the United States.

Kate Winslet, Sean Penn & Brad Pitt are amongst the 65 lucky recipients of the retractable clothes line.

"I don't know that Brad Pitt will be out there on Sunday putting the clothes line on the side of the garage, but you never know," Hill Industries managing director Graham Twartz said.

Hills has been very keen to break into the American market, and have them opt for the more eco-friendly clothes line vs power hungry tumble dryers.
