This Breast Cancer Survivor Is Launching A Line Of Zero-Waste Bras

By Aimee Lutkin

Stephanie Devine is a designer launching a line of "eco-underwear" that promises it's so clean, it could be "buried in the garden after use," according to Metro.uk. Devine's interest in her product comes from her interest in reducing waste and pollution, but also her experience of battling breast cancer. While going through treatment, Devine found it incredibly difficult to find a product that suited her needs. Hence her brand, The Very Good Bra.

“Since a breast cancer diagnosis 10 years ago, I’ve been obsessed with the idea of designing the perfect non-wired bra for women of all sizes and shapes,” Devine told Collective Hub.“I’ve always lived by the mantra, ‘buy less, buy better.' Statistics show that women on average own nine bras each, which are making their way into landfill. I knew I had to help in changing the way we manufacture and consume going forward.”
