The Bra Bank

Say hello to our newest recycling innovation...

The Bra Bank!



If you've got any old or ill-fitting bras, simply bring them in to our Lingerie Department to be recycled.


When you make a deposit at a Bra Bank, your ill-fitting or unwanted underwear will be whisked away to start a new life on the other side of the world, where traders support their families selling textiles locally.


Successful ventures like this keep many families in developing countries out of poverty, whilst also providing employment for people at home in the UK. Any bras that are genuinely beyond redemption are dismantled and disposed of properly.


BCR donates £1,000 to Against Breast Cancer for every tonne of textiles they collect, that’s only 9,000 bras and with over 30 million women in the UK this scheme could really help make a difference to people at home and overseas
