  • Phoenix-Mesa, AZ (1888PressRelease) August 30, 2013 - This year, Bra Recycling Month is also about celebration. The Bra Recyclers have launched the Brazaar Art Showcase in an effort to celebrate the lives of millions of women and girls who have battled cancer, neglect and abuse to blossom into individuals who inspire and motivate us to never take for granted the small things in our lives, even a bra. The Bra Recyclers have invited individuals and groups across the country to submit a piece for the Brazaar Online Art Showcase. On October 25th, The Bra Recyclers will showcase the Brazaar art submissions locally at the Desert Cancer Foundation of Arizona 16th Annual luncheon. Additionally, submissions will be posted online for voting nationally.

    As always, anyone who recycles bras in October will be entered into a drawing to win one of several great prizes, including $25 American Express Gift Cards and the infamous "Got Bras?" shirt. Additionally, The Bra Recyclers will be making a monetary donation to Free the Girls for every pound of bras recycled in October.

    In addition to supporting breast cancer awareness and domestic violence awareness, Bra Recycling Month also brings awareness to the importance of sustainability and delaying the amount of re-usable textile waste ending up in landfills. "As a board member of the Secondary Materials and Recycled Textiles (SMART) the association, continues to educate the consumer, retailers and manufacturers that '95% of textiles that are worn or torn can be recycled, yet only 15% gets donated or recycled. That means that 85% are unnecessarily going to landfills.' "These reusable textiles, like bras, could benefit women and girls around the world who cannot afford this simple lingerie staple that is considered a luxury item in their eyes," said The Bra Recyclers CEO, Elaine Birks-Mitchell.

    Year after year, The Bra Recyclers have set and accomplished their bra recycling goals. During Bra Recycling Month 2012, over 15,000 bras were recycled from women across the country. This year, The Bra Recyclers believe women will recycle more bras than ever thanks to a network of support from Bra Recycling Ambassadors across the country.
