Rebundle, in its verb form, means to sustainably dispose of plastic synthetic hair by mailing it to us for recycling. Since the early 1950s, plastic synthetic hair has been mass-produced for hairstyles worn mainly by Black women and has since accumulated millions of pounds of waste worldwide. This initiative was born out of a dire need to eliminate plastic synthetic hair waste and address this undetected environmental justice issue.
Don’t throw away your plastic synthetic hair.
We’ll collect it for recycling!
Take down your braids
We accept all brands and colors of plastic synthetic hair that is not on a weft. Please do not include bobby pins, string, rubber bands, beads, or shells. Feel free to cut the ends of your braids as usual.
Pack and mail your hair to us
Got any old boxes? Use that! We’ll recycle the box, too.
Thank you for joining us in the fight against single-use plastic waste! Your plastic synthetic hair will be recycled into outdoor furniture, decking, and more.
