Pretty in Pink

Breast Cancer AwarenessFor many people the color pink is not just a color. For centuries, the color pink has been used to draw out subtle emotions such as kindness, unselfish love and consideration. It is the color typically used during Valentine’s Day and the “pink ribbon” has become a symbol for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign. To celebrate this color, here are some of our own products that are pretty in pink.

This humidifier features a smooth drop shape design with a flow rate of 2.3 gallon output per day. The Crane Ultrasonic Humidifier aids in the prevention of cold, cough, flu symptoms, sinus infection and more. This pink humidifier is whisper quiet and can run for 24 hours on the medium setting.

Vapur Water BottlesThe Vapur Reflex Pink Water Bottle features a unique construction that allows it to stand upright when full and can be folded, rolled and flattened when empty. With a capacity of 18 ounces, this bottle is easier to carry than standard water bottles and is dishwasher safe.

Commemorating Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is an annual health campaign organized by breast cancer charities to increase awareness for the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure. Every year, an estimated 40,000 women in the United States die from this disease.

Although the general assumption is that only women suffer from breast cancer, men can be at risk as well. Every year, more than 2,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed among men. As with female breast bancer, the risk for contracting this disease increases with age.

The best way to fight breast cancer is to detect it in its early stages, most often done with a mammogram. Women and men should not ignore any breast lumps or swelling and should frequently see their doctor. It is recommended that all women age 50 years or older have routine mammograms performed.

In 2011, there were more than 2.6 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. At Filters Fast we want to increase breast cancer awareness and advocacy by urging everyone, especially those at high risk, to monitor their bodies for early detection and treatment. We invite you to feel free to share your sentiments, pay tribute to or write “in memory of” someone you lost to breast cancer in the comment section of this blog.

While Breast Cancer Awareness Month only lasts for 31 days, it is important to frequently raise awareness and educate ourselves about this disease. Do not neglect to have a routine mammogram performed. Above all else, always keep in mind to continue fighting and never lose hope.

Drink Pink! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Brita Pink Pitcher for Breast Cancer AwarenessYou can “Drink Pink!” during Breast Cancer Awareness Month with this Brita Pink Water Pitcher. In 2010, Brita will make a $50,000 donation to City of Hope to support breast cancer research, treatment and education. Brita has made the same donation for the last two years.

Brita pitchers are BPA free water pitchers. Like most filter water pitchers, Brita pitchers will reduce the taste and odor of chlorine. The Brita pink pitcher (pictured on left) also reduces sediment, dirt, rust, benzene, copper, cadmium, lead, mercury,  toluene and tetrachloreethylene. The pitcher is certified to NSF / ANSI Standard No. 42 for the reduction of chlorine as well as zinc.

Note: This product has been discontinued. We suggest the KOR Pink Water Bottle instead. It is a reusable water bottle with several innovative features such as the  KOR Perfect Sprout that features a thread less design that large enough to insert ice cubes, but small enough to minimize splashing. Order your here at KOR Water Bottle.

Maybe you want to “Drink Pink” on the go? You can carry your filtered water with you with our pink Klean Kanteen bottle or pink Vapur water bottle.

If pink’s not your thing, we do carry many other Brita water pitchers and reusable water bottles.

Please note that even though Brita made a donation to City of Hope, the proceeds from this pitcher do not support breast cancer research but instead support breast cancer awareness.
