Bra Recycling

I found this website for recycling your bras. It’s not something most of us think about, but for many women and girls, having a bra is something to be wished for, to hope for, to dream about. This program allows you to fulfill those wishes.

As women, our underwear (bras, panties, slips, pantyhose, camisoles, etc) can help or hinder us. We all know the misery of having ill-fitting undergarments. You are constantly tugging or pulling or adjusting, and it is uncomfortable and annoying. Now imagine when you have on a perfectly fitted bra that almost seems like a part of you. You look good so you feel good. The amazing power of underwear to boost our self-confidence! Now imagine not having a bra at all, or only having one bra that you have to wash and wear every day, or having a bra – but one that doesn’t really fit you but you wear it because it is all you have. I think for many of us, we take our bras for granted. But for those women in need, a good bra can make all the difference in the world. This program can help those women.

I have to say I am disappointed that my state of Colorado is not on the list of participating states with any organizations helping out or drop off locations available. I am checking into the whole idea so that I can possibly be part of this program. I am willing to be a drop off location for any of you who want to donate your old bras. I know you have some. Sometimes you get a bra that seems just right in the store, but after you have worn it a couple of times it just doesn’t really fit right, so in the drawer it goes. Or how about when you lose weight or gain weight and then need new bras, so the old ones sit around not being used. Maybe you have some old nursing bras that aren’t being used. Or how about when you take up jogging so you buy a bunch of sports bras and now you don’t jog anymore, so there they are in the drawer too.  How many bras do you have that you don’t actually wear?  Go look in your drawer right now and count them. Let’s put those bras to good use and give them to someone who really needs them.
