Going Green but Thinking Pink…

Save-the-Tatas-LogoAs you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and marketing focuses on “Think Pink” and I fully support raising awareness for breast cancer and that education is key.  With this in  mind I want to encourage everyone who is thinking pink to go green.  I found a great article today which I want to share with you all, as it has a wonderful and very informative info-graphic about ingredients found in products women use daily that  are contributing to the risk of getting cancer.  What are these cancer-causing ingredients? Lead, aluminum, parabens, phthalates, triclosan and octyl-methoxycinnamate.

I implore you ladies to take the time to read the ingredients in products which you use daily such as make-up, deodorant, perfume, lotions, bath products and hair products and check if any of the harmful ingredients listed above are in fact used in the making of that product.

Pink Fact:  “Each day, 1 in 13 women are exposed to known or probable human carcinogens through personal care products.”

There are  wonderful green alternatives out there that are all natural.  All natural products are better for your health, and good for the environment.

Please help spread breast cancer awareness.  

with love from one tree hugger to another, xo
