October is breast cancer awareness month, and thousands of people will participate in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer because they have been touched by the disease and want to do something about it. Although Avon claims it is “in it to end it,” the company uses chemicals linked to breast cancer and other diseases in its products—chemicals like parabens, triclosan, and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives.
In August, we challenged Avon to meet or beat Johnson & Johnson’s commitment to getting cancer-causing chemicals out of its products. Despite thousands of you writing to Avon, the company has yet to make this commitment.
Help us tell Avon that if it wants to be “in it to end it,” it needs to stop using chemicals linked to cancer and other diseases in its products. Write to the company using the form below.
