Against Breast Cancer - Bra Bank
Against Breast Cancer's bra recycling scheme takes your unwanted or unloved bras and through their network of bra banks raises vital funds for pioneering breast cancer research. We have a Bra Bank in the Students' Union which you can donate to.
Donated bras also help to support small businesses in Africa. Together with their recycling partners, and their textile recovery project prevents these bras going into landfill before giving them a new lease of life in developing countries such as Togo, Ghana and Kenya, where bras remain too expensive to produce locally.
Successful ventures like this keep many families in developing countries out of poverty whilst providing employment for people at home in the UK. Any bras that are genuinely beyond redemption are dismantled and disposed of properly.
For every tonne of bras collected, Against Breast Cancer receives £700 to fund their research. With over 30 million women in the UK you could really help make a difference. Bring your old bra's into the SU and donate today!
