Did you know that major cosmetics companies are marketing Pink Ribbon products to “support the fight against breast cancer”, while dozens of their products contain toxic ingredients that may be linked to breast cancer itself? Think Pink! calls for transparency and accountability and encourages consumers to be critical
We don’t accept, approve or tolerate the use of breast cancer awareness as a pure marketing instrument. Therefore, we will publicly denounce situations that take advantage and misrepresents the pink ribbon symbol and its meaning.
Pink Ribbon International is watching!
PINK RIBBONS, INC. is a feature documentary that shows how the devastating reality of breast cancer, which marketing experts have labeled a “dream cause,” has been hijacked by a shiny, pink story of success. Directed by Léa Pool and produced by Ravida Din, this documentary is based on Pink Ribbons, Inc., by Samantha King
