Bra Recycling, Exeter
We are very proud to have a bra bank at De Bora where you can bring unloved or unwanted bras.
For every tonne of bras collected, Against Breast Cancer receives £700 to fund life saving research.
The bras themselves are then sent to developing countries in Africa and around the world to help small businesses. Not only does this give ladies an income to support themselves but the wearing of a bra in many developing countries is seen as a symbol of wealth and is a deterrent to unwanted attention and rape. An awful but very real situation.
We’re therefore motivated to do all we can to support this very worthwhile charity. To date we’ve collected approximately 3,000 bra’s and prevented them from going to landfill.
