This year I am taking holiday gifting to the next level. In the month of October I’ll be donating $1 for every gift set sold by myself and my team to Breast Cancer Prevention Partners.
BCPP works to prevent the disease because 90% of breast cancer cases are not linked to genetics. This is why moving towards a low-tox lifestyle is vital for us and everyone around us. Their work is focused in four main areas.
- Work with communities most highly impacted by the environmental exposures linked to breast cancer.
- Translate science into education and action.
- Press businesses to make products safer.
- And pass health-protective laws.
BCPP believes all people need access to healthy food; safer, nontoxic products; and protection from exposures linked to breast cancer where they live and work.
BCPP and Beautycounter are official partners and fear of cancer was one of the reasons I started to use Beautycounter in the first place. We were on a major clean out path and I decided that if I was going to bring products into our home they were going to be clean, safe and environmentally friendly.
1 in 8 women will face a breast cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. We can change that for ourselves and the women younger than us if we take serious action now.
