In a world where profits often take precedence, how are business leaders embracing their social responsibilities? Today’s guest has donated over four million bras globally, making essential items accessible while promoting environmental sustainability. 
Elaine Birks-Mitchell, CEO of The Bra Recyclers focuses on circular economy principles by recycling and reusing bras to prevent landfill waste. Recognizing a community need, Elaine balances social impact with sustainable business practices. Beyond The Bra Recyclers, Elaine mentors students on social entrepreneurship and plans to offer consulting services on zero waste initiatives soon. In this episode, Elaine and Denise dive deep into data-driven sustainability, pricing strategies, the importance of reliable revenue streams for nonprofits, and much more. It’s time to make a living for your giving!
