What does it mean to Rebundle?
Rebundle 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 mostly worn 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.
Living sustainably should be simple, so we'll be right back! We want to make it even easier for you to recycle your plastic synthetic hair with us, and we're making improvements. While we're away, we encourage you to consider our plant-based braiding hair instead. Please do not mail your hair to our headquarters or to any other address.
Take down your braids
We accept all brands and colors of plastic synthetic hair that is not on a weft. Feel free to cut the ends of your braids as usual. Please do not include any bobby pins, string, rubber bands, beads, or shells.
Pack the hair into a box
Got any old boxes? Use that! We’ll recycle the box, too. If you know the brand of your hair, write it on the top of the box.
Mail your hair to us
Now you’re ready to Rebundle. Your plastic synthetic hair will be recycled into outdoor furniture and lawn and garden tools. Thank you for joining us in the fight against single-use plastic waste.
