Pink & Green: Eco-Friendly Ways to Show Your Support For The Cause

Mambo Sprouts is always on the lookout for products that help us live a green and eco-friendly lifestyle. The month of October is special for many of us, so we decided to look for organic and natural products that also help benefit breast cancer awareness. It’s not too late to get involved! Check out our top five:

1. Tarte Cosmetics Think Pink Natural Collection

Why it’s pink: A whopping 20% of proceeds from purchases of the Think Pink Natural Collection during the month of October will be donated to the Young Survival Coalition for breast cancer awareness.

Why it’s green: Tarte Cosmetics are all-natural -100% free of parabens, petro-chemicals, phthalates, sulfates and synthetic fragrances. They’re also getting more sustainable by packaging many with materialsthat are recyclable or post-consumer recycled.

2. Sweet Grass Farm Fragrance Sticks in Carnation & Pink Peppercorn

Why it’s pink: Sweet Grass Farm will donate 10% of each purchase to the National Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Why it’s green: Just four years old, Sweet Grass Farm is an all-natural company that was started in the kitchen. Their simple, healthy ingredients are listed right on the website for anyone to see. Bath and body, home fragrance and even baby care are created in all-natural ways at Sweet Grass Farm.

3. Dandelion Organic Baby Toys Pink Collection

Why it’s pink: Dandelion will donate a portion of proceeds from the sale of these items to support breast cancer research.

Why it’s green: Dandelion products are made with all-natural and organic materials. This family-owned, family-focused company is dedicated to Earth-friendly goods for babies. Making safe, natural products for little ones is not all; they also actively seek sustainability in their office–with reusable drink containers and recycled paper products.

4. Think Pink Fleece Blanket from Giggle

Why it’s pink: 10% of the proceeds from this product will be donated to the Young Survival Coalition. The Young Survival Coalition is dedicated to the critical issues unique to women under 40 and breast cancer.

Why it’s green: It’s made from recycled soda pop bottles –the 100% fleece blanket is Oeko-Tex compliant and formaldehyde-free. Giggle is a company devoted to helping parents make wise choices, labeling different products with categories such as Healthy (formaldehyde-free, washable, BPA-free, low or no-VOC paints, nontoxic) and Responsible (nontoxic, recycled, Earth and baby friendly, and support charities).

5. Organic Bouquet’s Organic Flowers, Gourmet Organic Gift Baskets, Wreaths and more

Why it’s pink: A total of 10% of the purchase price from any item on the website will be donated to the Breast Cancer Fund and Breastcancer.org for all orders placed this month.

Why it’s green: Organic Bouquet sells organically grown flowers, plants, and wreaths, as well as organic goodies like fruit, chocolates, and other goodies. It goes beyond typical organic standards by earning certification not only from the USDA, but also Veriflora, Demeter, Fair Trade, Smart Certified, and Green-e. And, whenever possible, they keep things Earth-friendly in the office –using materials that are recycled, biodegradable and all-natural among other green criteria.

  • Great article. People need to realize that breast cancer awareness is a 12 month cause. One month a year isn’t going to do it.

    And it’s not just about women. Men like breasts, too, so they need to get involved.
