Back in the day, undergarments were often called “unmentionables” in polite company. While most people no longer have trouble saying a word like “bra” in mixed company, we don’t talk much about recycling or reusing these garments. And yet, many bras are discarded because they are the wrong size, the wrong fit or the wrong color - long before they are worn out.
Enter the Bra Recyclers, a textile company that specializes in the recycling and reuse of used and unused bras. They will accept all bras in good condition (with functioning clasps and straps) in all sizes and styles, as well as specialty bras, such as post-surgical and maternity bras.
