This October is the 25th anniversary of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And what better way to commemorate the occassion than by recycling for the cause? Whether you or a loved one has been affected by breast cancer or you just want to lend a helping hand, here are five things you can recycle to make a difference today.
Most women have at least one bra in their closet that just doesn’t fit right. Rather than let them lay forgotten at the bottom of a drawer, recycle your lightly-used, unwanted bras to make a difference for breast cancer survivors. Charities like Bras for a Cause and The Bra Recyclers collect gently-worn brassieres and distribute them at crisis centers and breast cancer support groups.
The Bra Recyclers have drop-off locations in several U.S. states and Canadian provinces. If you can’t find a drop-off bin near you, just mail your bras to either charity. Check out their Websites for shipping information.
