we are proud ambassadors of The Bra Recyclers.

they're dedicated to ensuring that preloved bras + prostheses go to those who need them most, rather than into landfill. Each year, they accept thousands of bras + prostheses from individuals + businesses and either recycle them or give them to women + girls in need, like those escaping domestic violence or human trafficking. The Bra Recycler’s impact is huge – both environmentally and socially.
