Plastic, glass, and paper are recycled without being given a second thought, but what about recycling bras? While it may seem like an odd question, there are a number of companies taking the initiative to recycle these used undergarments.
There are hundreds of thousands of undergarments purchased by women each year, most of which end up in the landfill. However, a bra has more potential than many realize and shouldn’t be thrown out in such haste.Leading undergarment manufacturers in Japan are recycling used bras in order to make fuel for industrial use. Not only does it help to reduce the amount of bras that make it to the landfill, but it also helps them to pursue green business practices that benefit the environment.Although, as of yet, there aren’t any programs in the United States that convert used bras into fuel, there are other ways women can recycle their unwanted undergarments.
Bra Recyclers collect used and new bras and distribute them to women in need. While they aren’t converted into fuel, recycling bras in this manner still helps the environment by reducing the amount of waste that would have gone to landfill. The Bosom Buddy Program is another great option. Just like Bra Recyclers, The Bosom Buddy Program helps women in need, assisting them in their pursuit for self-sufficiency.

Next time, while sorting through recyclables, don’t forget to sift through old bras. Any bras that are in good and working condition are eligible for the program.
