October Shopping Guide

Welcome friends, to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when pink ribbons cover everything from toxic cosmetics to BPA-lined food cans, urging us to be aware of breast cancer.

When 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with the disease, how much more awareness do we need? The Breast Cancer Fund is working to shift the conversation from awareness to prevention.

The Breast Cancer Fund only partners with companies who support our mission to reduce exposure to chemicals linked to breast cancer, and encourage a healthy lifestyle.

We’d like to give a BIG shout out to our partners in prevention for supporting our work, providing safe products for consumers, leading the industry in transparency, and promoting an active lifestyle. We can’t do this work without our beloved partners. Show them some love!
