The Bra Recyclers, LLC is a social enterprise, founded by Elaine Birks-Mitchell and Johnny Mitchell, Jr in 2008. We are a clothing recycling company specializing in the reuse and recycling of new and used bras and other lingerie. Our goal is to educate and influence retailers and consumers on how to benefit from the circular economy by extending the life of clothing (e.g., bras), rather than discarding them in landfills.
As a social enterprise, we believe in providing substantial social benefits to the communities we serve. Pre-loved and new bras are donated to nonprofits around the world that support women and girls escaping domestic violence, human trafficking.
