today’s news and information gleanings from here and there!

Quote for today … “October marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and although donating to breast cancer research is encouraged, Breast Cancer Action wants to raise awareness of ‘pinkwashing’ campaigns and remind consumers to think before they buy pink.”Medical Daily


Breast Cancer Action coined the term pinkwashing as part of our Think Before You Pink® campaign. Pinkwasher: (pink’-wah-sher) noun. A company or organization that claims to care about breast cancer by promoting a pink ribbon product, but at the same time produces, manufactures and/or sells products that are linked to the disease.”
