h/t Threading Water, who was quoted in this MSN article regarding the controversy over pink ribbon campaigns. The focus this year for "Think Before You Pink" is to target companies who market products that are linked to or have carcinogens in them, but slap a pink ribbon on that very same product. Read on, you'll be appalled.

Regardless of this controversy, I want to take a moment to honor those bloggers who are or have dealt with breast cancer. Your courage and willingness to share your struggle brings all of us more "awareness" than all the pink ribbons in the world. Thank you.

Can you help us out?
