I hate buying bottled water. Not only do I think it’s bad for the environment, but also I think it’s just a waste of money. The only bottled water I feel good about buying is Ethos Water at Starbucks because some of the money I’m spending is going to a good cause. I tend to gravitate toward products that give some of the profits to organizations in need. I’m sure I’m not the only one. So, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I have found a few foods you should feel good about eating.
Pink Poetry Smoothie from Odwalla
Plum, dark sweet cherry, guava and other juices are blended with hibiscus, cranberry and green tea extracts, along with Vitamin C and E, as well as Calcium and Iron–two important things women don’t get enough of in their diet! The Superfood drink was made to increase awareness of breast cancer, and Odwalla is donating $250,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
LUXE MILK Chocolate from Ghiradelli
LUXE MILK, Ghirardelli’s all natural premium milk chocolate line, is trying to raise up to $100,000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Whenever you purchase a specially marked pink bar or bag of LUXE MILK, you will receive a unique prize code. When you enter your prize code ad www.ghirardelli.com/LuxeMilk, $1 will be donated to the NBCF.
Pink Ribbon Bagel from Panera
Cherry chips, dried cherries and cranberries, plus vanilla, honey and brown sugar are baked in the signature breast cancer ribbon shape. For each Pink Ribbon bagel sold during the month of October, Panera Bread will donate a portion of proceeds to benefit breast cancer charities.
A special shout-out to my two roommates who inspired this post. They’re both members of Zeta Tau Alpha, a national sorority whose philanthropy focus is breast cancer education and awareness.
What foods do you like that donate money to causes and organizations in need?
