Since 1985, October has been designated National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Every year, companies also get into the game with special products that benefit breast cancer organizations. Here are a few of our favorites:
-New Balance “Lace Up for the Cure” Collection: This new line of sneaks and clothing will donate five percent of all sales to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, with a guaranteed minimum of $500,000. All the items feature pink, naturally, and range from a slick racerback top to snazzy fuchsia running shorts.
-Essie's Raise Awareness: We can never have too many pink polishes. Essie's flattering creamy petal will be available in salons this month, with part of the proceeds going to Living Beyond Breast Cancer.
Despite the copious amounts of EBOOST consumed in our office, there’s been a whole lot of coughing lately. Yes, cold season is here. This year, instead of sending sniffling loved ones soup or flowers, how about case of vitamin-packed juices? Cooler Cleanse’s Healing Cooler is a collection of six fresh-pressed juices that you can have delivered anywhere in the continental United States. There are three options — Immunity, Strength, Recovery — geared toward different needs, or you can always make your own. Unlike juice cleanses, which aren’t for everyone, this delivery is something any sick buddy would appreciate. Not only will they help you get better, but they are also pure and refreshing — exactly what you need when you’re stuffed up and miserable. My personal favorites? Kale and Co., and iron-rich blend for people who don’t think they like green juice, and Apple Lemon Ginger, which kickstarts the digestive system and tastebuds. Here’s one more incentive: from now until November, Cooler Cleanse will donate 25 percent of the proceeds from each Healing Cooler to the Young Survival Coalition, which benefits young women facing breast cancer.
Even if you’re not sick, pack your plate with antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies. Bonus — it’ll improve your skin, hair, and nails, too. Find out our favorite superfoods.
