Bust Out Your Old Bras

I am SO into cleaning out my closets lately. It’s the preparation for moving – getting rid of the old and unused that I’ve been holding onto for far too long. The best part is there are so many ways to get rid of stuff that you no longer need. You can give it away, trade it, sell it or recycle it. And who knew there was a use for those bras that were on the clearance rack three years ago that just never fit quite right, but you just hated to throw away? Well there totally is.

Adriane from Caribou Baby gave me the heads up on this month’s Bra Recycling effort. Your never worn or gently used bras will go to women in developing countries and provide deserving women bras as they transition back to self-sufficiency. They need all shapes and sizes. Remember they should be clean, in fully functioning order – no broken clasps or straps, and if they have their tags on them, keep ’em on there – new bras are always appreciated.

What You Need To Do Before You Donate:
1. Wash your bras.
2. Fill out the Bra Recycling Form online and print it out or fill one out in person at Caribou Baby.
3. Bring your bras and forms to Caribou Baby and drop them in the donation box.

Caribou Baby

Coming soon to Driggs Avenue will be a baby store and class space for families. Caribou Baby is expected to open early this year.

I’m Adriane Stare and I’m opening a baby store and class space for expectant and new families in Greenpoint, Brooklyn!

Caribou Baby finally signed a lease last week on a beautiful, old storefront at 272 Driggs Avenue, a block and half from the McCarren Park Playground.

Paper is up in the windows, walls have been erected, it’s all happening! Stay tuned for updates as the store comes together and details on the grand opening slated for early 2011.
