Recycling has never been so sexy!

Big, small, old or new, they’ll take them all.  Of course, we are talking about your bras.

Seriously. You can support women and save the planet in one kind gesture.

The Bra Recyclers is a textile recycling company focused on keeping used braziers out of landfills and distributing (the good ones) to women in need around the world. Besides the basics – in all cup sizes, they are in need of specialty bras, such as post breast surgery and maternity bras. Recipients in the states include; Community Against Sexual Harm in Sacramento, CA, Alternatives for Battered Women in Rochester, NY and The Family Place in Dallas, TX.

Have a bra (or two) to send?

Just follow these 4 easy steps:
•    Wash it. All bras should be washed.
•    Tag it. Fill out Bra Recycling Form.
•    Box it. Place your bras in a box or large envelope.
•    Drop it off or mail it to:
