This one is for the ladies. After writing about disaster preparedness last week, I figured I would lighten it up a little and write about bras. That’s right, bras.
When was the last time you cleaned out your lingerie drawer? I’m going to go out on a limb and guess it’s been a while. Well, here’s some fantastic incentive to do so.
The Bra Recyclers is a textile recycling company that recycles and reuses bras that would otherwise go to landfills. The bras are distributed around the world through exporters and Bra Recycling Ambassadors to deserving women and girls in transition.
They take bras in all sizes and styles that are in good condition with clasps and straps that function. Special needs bras, post breast surgery and maternity bras are particularly valuable.
What’s best is The Bra Recyclers make it easy to donate. Just follow these four steps:
1. Wash it. All bras should be washed.
2. Tag it. Fill out the Bra Recycling Form.
3. Box it. Place your bras in a box or large envelope.
4. Drop it off or mail it to: 3317 S. Higley Rd, Ste 114-441, Gilbert, AZ 85297.
It’s so important to many of my clients that the items they are getting rid of are reused. The Bra Recyclers is just one of many fantastic niche recycling programs out there.
So, why not take 15 minutes this weekend to dive into your lingerie drawer, try on those bras you haven’t worn in a while, and donate them to a good cause.
