Spotlight: The Bra Recyclers

First Wave Feminism, 2008

The bra is something I have not found many reuses for.  In 2008 I turned several of my used bras into an artwork paying homage to the First Wave Feminists of the late 19th and early 20th century.  I promise to keep on brain-storming to come up with more creative reuse ideas for the bra. In the meantime, I love what the The Bra Recyclers of Gilbert, AZ are doing with used bras!  They collect them and re-distribute them to developing countries around the world.  The next time your bra is no longer useful to you, send it to the Bra Recyclers instead of the garbage can.
