Recycle Your Bra & Support Breast Cancer Awareness 10/12/2010 12:50:27 PM



Every woman has them: ill-fitting, uncomfortable, or just plain unflattering bras that sit in the back of their drawer collecting lint. Instead of keeping those over-the-shoulder boulder holders mothballed, or worse, consigning them to the dumpster, consider “recycling” them to raise money for breast cancer research.

Several nonprofits around the world are collecting  unwanted bras to sell or donate to women in need. Millions of women across the globe are going commando not by choice but because they can’t afford proper support garments, so consider this a two-for-one opportunity—you help a well-endowed sister feel her best and you give the search for a cure a much-needed boost.

If you’re planning on organizing a clothing-swap party this month, ask your girlfriends to bring their clean, good-condition bras so you can make a joint donation. Bra recyclers are looking for all manner of bra sizes and shapes, including maternity, nursing, post-surgery, sports, and plus sizes.
