Recycle your socks and undies!

Undies are not exactly garments that we’ll pass on to others, which is probably why we’ve now got your attention!

Inevitably we hold onto our underwear – bras and knickers – for too long (despite their holes and saggy elastics) because it feels so wrong to put them in the bin.

That’s why we’re tickled pink by a new initiative by ethical underwear label Nisa and Little Yellow Bird launched this Earth Day.

Nisa is accepting worn Nisa briefs, bralettes and socks for recycling and Little Yellow Bird will turn these garments into shredded fibres for use in a range of products like carpet underlay and insulation.

The initiative is being trialled for 12 months and as an incentive / thank you for keeping your undies out of landfill, anyone who participates gets a $10 discount off their next order.

We’re also loving Nisa’s latest limited edition floral print release (pictured) – a collab with New Zealand textile artist Sally Shand of Ragdoll Studio who drew inspiration for the print from the nature around her.

All Nisa garments are also made in Wellington where Nisa creates employment opportunities for women from refugee and migrant backgrounds, and are available in sizes XS to 2XL.

You can return your washed Nisa garments by posting them to Nisa Recycle Programme, Floor 1, 99 Willis Street, Wellington 6011 or by dropping them off in the collection bin at the Nisa Workshop (same address).
