CHICO, Calif. (October 7, 2009) — Klean Kanteen, the leading manufacturer of lightweight stainless steel water bottles, has partnered with the Breast Cancer Fund (BCF) once again to donate $4 of every online sale of all sizes of pink, Classic bottles in the month of October to the Breast Cancer Fund in support of its work to eliminate environmental and other preventable causes of breast cancer.
“Many of us at Klean Kanteen® have been touched by the challenge and tragedy of cancer,” stated co-owner, Michelle Kalberer. “Supporting the Breast Cancer Fund is one of many efforts we make to work toward a healthy, sustainable future for people and the planet.”
According to the BCF, in 2008, a woman's lifetime risk of breast cancer is one in eight. In response to this public health crisis, the Breast Cancer Fund identifies and advocates for elimination of environmental and other preventable causes of the disease. Founded in 1992, the Breast Cancer Fund works from the knowledge that breast cancer is not simply a personal tragedy, but a public health priority that demands action from all.
Klean Kanteens were developed out of concern for the negative health and environmental impacts associated with the pervasiveness of plastic in our society/food chain. In addition to providing a healthy, long-lasting, peace-of-mind beverage container, Klean Kanteen is committed to supporting organizations such as the Breast Cancer Fund that work to identify and eliminate toxins from our lives.
Klean Kanteen® was proud to support the Breast Cancer Fund's 10th Climb Against the Odds a mountain expedition for breast cancer prevention. From June 21 to 27, 2009, a team of 29 inspiring women and men climbed the 14,162-foot Mt. Shasta to rise above their experiences with breast cancer and collectively work toward prevention.
So Go Pink in October and join Klean Kanteen and the Breast Cancer Fund to help fight the spread of breast cancer.
