Stink! Breast Cancer Prevention Campaign
Date: Oct 1, 2016 - Oct 31, 2016
The provocative film Stink! opens with a foul smell, a pair of kids pajamas, and a single father trying to find out what that smell could possibly be. But instead of getting a straight answer, director Jon Whelan stumbles on an even bigger issue in America, toxic chemicals running amuck in the consumer products we use every day because of an unregulated chemical industry.
The Breast Cancer Fund and the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics are teaming up with the filmmaker this October to talk about the need for state and federal laws that require fragrance suppliers and cosmetic companies to disclose the secret – and often toxic – ingredients that hide under the word “fragrance.” Across the country, as people watch the film, they are learning about this important public health and consumer right to know issue and how they can get involved in advocating for change.
This October, Stink! Will be available for streaming for FREE in honor of Breast Cancer Prevention Month.
Here's how you can help:
1. Learn more about the importance of fragrance disclosure.
2. Act now to demand Unilever fully disclose the fragrance ingredients in their Axe Body Spray and other products.
3. Host a screening of Stink! to raise awareness - and funds - to support our work.
