Thank you for being here for this four-part series!
I’ve mentioned this before, but it bears repeating: This is a series I could put together for ANY month of the year, because Beautycounter’s commitment to creating safer products (free of ingredients linked to breast cancer) and advocating for broader legislative change happens all year long. (It’s just one of the many things I love about this company, and I know many of you feel the same way.)
Speaking of CHANGE, I wanted to spotlight my favorite organization to support when I want to make financial contributions to breast cancer prevention: Breast Cancer Prevention Partners (BCPP). This organization is the leading science-based policy and advocacy organization working to prevent breast cancer by eliminating exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation.
From their website: “90% of breast cancer cases are not linked to genetics. That’s why we work to eliminate the other risk factors—to save lives and prevent breast cancer before it starts.”
YES TO THIS MISSION.
BCPP advocates for policy change, they push for environmental justice through the lens of improving health, and they EDUCATE in a big way as it relates to breast cancer prevention. (And you know how I feel about education!)
I always feel good about supporting the work Breast Cancer Prevention Partners is doing, and I wanted to share them with you in case you’re looking for a way to financially contribute to breast cancer prevention this month — or any time! (I appreciate that they give you ways to take action that are separate from a financial donation as well.)
For this week’s giveaway entry, share one thing you learn after visiting the Breast Cancer Prevention Partners website. Enter by replying to the email that sent you to this post.
I hope you’ve found this series to be helpful in some way. My mother-in-law said it inspired her to schedule a mammogram, and I’ll count that as a HUGE win! I know we talked about lots of things — everything from WHY and HOW to choose safer products to looking out for cleanwashing, greenwashing, and pinkwashing to how to perform a self exam and how to remember to perform one monthly, too — and we could spend lots more time discussing the topic of breast cancer. My goal was to make this series informative but not overwhelming, because it’s hard to take action (even in small ways) when we feel overwhelmed by too much information.
