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.
= direct impact
Boosting the local economy one carnival at a time!
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.
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.
