This film discusses “PINKWASHERS”, defined as any company or organization that claims to care about breast cancer by promoting a pink ribbon product but at the same time produces, manufactures or sells products that are linked to the disease.

Unfortunately, most companies that align with the pink ribbon are “pinkwashers”, and why this epidemic continues. Susan Komen, Avon, Estee Lauder, Kentucky Fried Chicken are just a few. Educate yourself about whom you support and what is in the products you buy.

Skin Deep (www.ewg.org/skindeep) is a database you can check any cosmetic or body care product to see if there are toxins in it.
