The Bra Recyclers Support Children’s Receiving Home

The Bra Recyclers, a textile recycling company based in Gilbert, Arizona, recently extended support to the Sacramento area. The Bra Recyclers, who support women’s shelters across the nation as well as women’s organizations globally, will be providing recycled bras to The Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento on a permanent basis.

Children’s Receiving Home is a state licensed facility that serves children ages 1-17 and assists between 1,200 and 1,800 children each year. According to Tanya Kravchuk, “The Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento is committed to changing the lives of the abused and neglected children and their families by providing a safe haven of comfort, hope and healing.” Children assisted by the organization often arrive with little, if any possessions. They “often get the first birthday present of their life at our home,” Kravchuk stated.

The Bra Recyclers aim to provide women and girls in need with the bra they need to feel encouraged, beautiful and confident during their most desperate hours. Touching on the environmental and social benefits of recycling gently used bras, Birks-Mitchell stated, “Having clean and properly fitted bra to wear is not usually at the top of the list for women and girls in need due to other priorities, such as food, shelter, and safety. We want to do our part by providing a simple encouragement that will lift a woman’s spirit, boost her self esteem, and ultimately help re-shape a life. Not only are we able to provide this important gift at the time of need, but bra recycling also helps delay the number of textiles entering the waste stream.”

The Bra Recyclers are currently promoting their second annual Bra Recycling Month. The month-long event highlights the importance of bra recycling, while bringing awareness to breast cancer and domestic violence simultaneously. This year, The Bra Recyclers hope to recycle 10,000 bras during October.
