In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, products ranging from running shoes to fruit snacks are all turning pink, and with good reason. BreastCancer.org states that every 1 in 8 women are at risk for developing invasive breast cancer during her lifetime, which is up from every 1 in 22 women developing the disease in the 1940’s. But does buying a product with the pink ribbon really help save lives? The answer is, some do much more than others. Companies are allowed to print the pink ribbon on their products without even having to donate to find a cure. Businesses are very much aware of the fact that “the pink ribbon is arguably the most successful marketing symbol of our time,” says Karuna Jaggar, the executive director of Breast Cancer Action.
How do you avoid the scams? Research is key. Before picking up a product with a pink ribbon, make sure that your money is actually being used to benefit breast cancer research and not to simply support a marketing tactic which leaves the company with a greater profit than the foundation.
