For the entire month, traditionally dedicated to Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence Awareness, The Bra Recyclers, a textile recycling company based in Arizona, will be collecting recycled bras nationwide to help women.

The Bra Recyclers collected over 7,000 bras during the first annual Bra Recycling Month last year, and are hopeful this year will be even more successful. The Bra Recyclers currently support 39 organizations across the United States, and will be partnering with businesses across the country to host weekly raffles to give away prizes.

So far, prizes have been provided by Sheila with Cookie Lee Jewelry, The Bra Tree, and Jenneration Fix, Inc. Continue Reading
