OUR STORY

Carnicycle was formed in November 2018.

A social enterprise, whose mission is to bridge the gap between Carnival Culture (carnival, fetes, and other festivals) and sustainability through environmental advocacy and costume recycling.

We are the first AND ONLY business to recycle carnival costumes in the world.

 

By recycling costumes we aim to divert waste from landfills

and create a local impact in the countries we work in.

OUR PROCESS

COLLECTION

We collect carnival costumes (Carnival bras, backpacks, head pieces and arm and leg pieces and male shorts) as well as other clothing items, such as J'ouvert wear and shoes,  from various carnivals with the help of volunteers, partners and masquerders.

BREAKDOWN & SANITIZATION

Our team dismantles costumes into their various parts. We then sanitize the costumes and other donated items to prepare them for resale or donation.

DONATION & RESALE

We donate the bras and clothes to local women shelter's of the country we collect in. We also donate wire frames back to local designers. 

To sustain our business we resell collected feathers at a discounted value.

ANIMAL FEATHERS

Hundreds of thousands of animal feathers such as ostrich and goose feathers are used to create beautiful costumes. We recycle and sell these feathers at a reduced cost to sustain our business and give these feathers a second life.

PLASTIC WASTE

We recycle the plastic beads and gems that are known to give costumes their sparkle.

BRAS & CLOTHING

Bras are one of the least donated items, yet there are tons of young girls, teens, mothers who need bras. We donate the regular bras we collect to local woman shelters in the country we are collecting bras in, as well as Free the Girls.
