Recycle Your Bras

Posted by Sarah Engler

I went on a closet-purging rampage recently and realized I knew of no green way to get rid of old (yet still wearable) bras. A little internet research later, and voila! Two great organizations:

Support1000 matches those who need bras with people who have some to donate. The organization has sent thousands all around the world to homeless shelters, schools, and social service organizations that serve women. Just ship yours to its address in Chicago.

The Bra Recyclers has an address for mailed donations as well as drop-off locations in 10 states. If you donate this month, you'll even be entered in a prize drawing. (Because it's Bra Recycling Month! Who knew?)

This summer I donated at least 20 like new bras to Goodwill.

Recycling bras is a good idea!
