It's October and once again pink is taking over a month once dominated by orange and black. And that is a very good thing. Breast Cancer Awareness has gone mainstream—meaning that seeing ribbons, participating in 5K walks and donating to charities by buying rosy-colored products has become part of your seasonal routine.
While it seems every year the options to spend on grows and grows, this time around we've decided to highlight the items that give back the most to the cause: Beauty and fashion gems that donate 100 percent of proceeds to a breast cancer organization.
But before you get shopping the pretty pink aisles, consider getting in a quick workout at that same department store. Bloomingdale's is holding a Pink Yoga event at stores across the country on Saturday, October 3. The 45-minute sweat session requires a $10 donation fee, which will go toward The Marisa Acocella Marchetto Foundation and The Carey Foundation benefiting the Tutu Project. Participants will also receive a yoga mat and gift bag.
