We are delighted to have donated 45 bras to the charity Smalls for All. The bras in good enough condition will be sent to Africa and those that are too worn are sold to a family-run recycling company to help raise funds. Smalls for All say “in many more remote or poorer parts of Africa, underwear is a luxury that many people just can’t afford or it isn’t easily available” so sending these bras is of huge benefit.
Upcycling bras in this way – preventing them from going to landfill – fits well with our environmental ethos. We are looking at reducing our environmental impact wherever we can, and it’s great to have worked in partnership with staff and parents to support other women around the world and re-use these resources.
