We are The Bra Recyclers and are excited about our partnership with Leading Lady Intimate Apparel. The partnership will assist us in continuing our outreach to provide recycled bras to deserving women and girls across the country that are part of our Charity Connections.
The Bra Recyclers is an Arizona based recycling company. Founded in 2008, we recycle gently used bras to women and girls in need in communities throughout the country. These recycled bras provide encouragement and support when they need it most. We currently support a network of 58 organizations that provide women and girls with the tools and skills they need to become self-sufficient. We have been able to exceed our outreach commitments on a continual basis thanks to partnerships with corporations such as Leading Lady, as well as through a network of Bra Recycling Ambassadors. Bra Recycling Ambassadors are the “foot soldiers” of The Bra Recyclers. They are women around the country who are committed to bringing bra recycling into their communities by hosting bra drives.
We are so excited to partner with a company that is community and environmentally focused. Leading Lady is known for celebrating and supporting women, and we are proud to share their bras with the women we serve. We currently support 58 organizations throughout the nation and frequently receive requests for full figure bras. Unfortunately, such a high demand for full figure bras has been a challenge to keep up with. We often times ration how many we give out to ensure we keep some in inventory. By partnering with Leading Lady, fulfilling request for full figure bras and our increasing request for nursing bras, will be more achievable.
