Breast Cancer Prevention Partners works to implement our Theory of Change, employing multiple strategic activities that result in reduced exposure to toxic chemicals with a goal to greatly reduce rates of breast cancer.
We work to build the base of public support necessary to convince policymakers to oppose the powerful chemical industry, get the supply chain cooperation needed to change markets, and educate consumers on why they should want and demand safer products.
Role: I get to collaborate with an incredible team and community of conscious businesses, philanthropists and advocates to initiate systemic change to reduce breast cancer risk and greatly improve the health of women and our environment.
Tip: Go minimal. Choose fewer items with quality natural ingredients and health enhancing properties. Avoid “fragrance”. I want everything I put on my skin to be practically edible!
Role: I coordinate BCPP’s grant reporting, proposals, and communications to foundations and large donors. With my background in art, I also work on our social media graphics and cartoons.
Tip: Read the ingredient label! Start small – don’t get overwhelmed. Begin with a manageable sized list of hazardous chemicals you should avoid in your products; as your brain starts to memorize those names and you get used to looking out for those chemicals, slowly add more to your ‘Ingredients to Avoid’ list.
Role: When it comes to marketing at BCPP, I’m in the “in-house” everything. I wear many hats in my day-to-day, focusing on spearheading all creative outward facing communications and marketing initiatives, with a goal of inspiring women through social impact.
Tip: I am not a scientist and most of the complex chemical names on a product label look like Greek to me. So want to know my top tip? Use easy apps and online sources like EWG Skin Deep, Made Safe and/or Think Dirty to check and see if what you want to purchase contains toxic ingredients!
