About The Bra Recyclers

Kaja Couture is collaborating with The Bra Recyclers to encourage the recycling of preloved bras to support women and girls around the world in transition and in need.

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 of new and pre-loved bras. Our goal is to educate and influence retailers and consumers on the social and environmental benefits of participating in the circular economy by extending the life of preloved bras, rather than discarding them into landfills.


The social impact of the re-use of bras has allowed us to donate millions of bras to women and girls around the world in need and/or who are escaping domestic violence and human trafficking.
