New Post at Gorgeously Green: Donate your bra! Help women all over the world @brarecycling @freethegirls
Yes, I could give them to friends, but it’s frankly a bit embarrassing to ask a bunch of friends if they want a an old, but new bra! Bras are personal. There’s also the collection of barely-used bras that many of us have stuffed away – maybe we’ve lost or gained weight and they no longer fit properly. When I recently purchased a bra from Bloomingdales, the sales assistant gave me one of those reward cards and told me that if I purchased ten bras, I’d get one free. “When would I purchase ten bras?” I asked incredulously. She told me the card is good for a couple of years and to remember that I should toss my bra after 6 months! What?????? The bra cost me fifty bucks and she’s telling me that it’s only good for 6 months! Good try…even if that bra slightly loses it’s shape after multiple washes, I’m not tossing it after only 6 months. It made me so mad that I’m now religious ...
