Shop Consciously: 10 Pink Yoga Products for Breast Cancer

The Pink Gear That Actually Benefits Breast Cancer Causes

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, bringing with it a healthy dose of pinkness into our lives. There are many opportunities to wear pink to raise consciousness this month, but not all the ribbon-themed gear out there actually helps raise money to fight breast cancer and support people with the disease. However, there are some socially responsible companies offering special pink products that do donate some of the proceeds. To help you decide where your money is best spent, we're rounding up the pink yoga products that benefit breast cancer organizations.

The Three Minute Egg ergonomic block is a wonderful prop. It does everything a traditional yoga block can do with a few advantages. Its rounded shape is a much more comfortable fit under your back. If you use a block under your hands in balancing postures, the Egg shaped block gives you the height you need but doesn't allow you to dump your weight into it so your core stays strong. 

Ten percent of sales of pink Thrive Eggs are earmarked for organizations that support people with living with breast cancer. The blocks are also priced at a discount.
