Bra Recycle

Posted September 1st, 2010 in Ume's Interests 2 Comments »

Bra has been a fashionable item across the world –  there are many cute looking bras in different shapes and different colours.  But, what can you do with your old bras when you are not wearing them?

Did you know that bras are actually the most highly sought after item for women in developing countries?  They are technically difficult to make in the developing world, therefore bras are valuable to women in those area.

There have been campaign for bra recycling in the past by Wacol or Oxfarm, but in the months of September and October, Berlei is setting up bra recycling bins in Myer stores Australia wide to give you the opportunity to help deserving women have access to a basic necessity.

If you have any unused bras at home, simply donate them at the  Berlei Recycle bins in Myer.  You will be helping to reduce landfill and create jobs in developing nations.  And, for every 10 bras recycled, $1 will be donated to BCNA (Breast Cancer Network Australia).

    This is a great idea! I didn’t think about women in developing countries who don’t have bras…

    When my bras get old I usually throw them in the bin.. but it does feel like a waste if maybe someone can use it more.

    If there is any campaign for bra recycle again, you should give your old bra to the charity 🙂
