2010 is almost over! Tomorrow is New Years Eve and many of you are finalizing plans, finding outfits, and looking forward to toasts at midnight. Lots of people have traditions of going out, cooking big meals, or watching the ball drop. There's another New Years tradition many of us partake in - the New Years Resolution.
Pink Cart's blog
We all know how powerful Pink is. We know that it symbolizes strength, hope, community, and perseverance to so many women and their families. But something you may not know is that when you see Pink Carts, you're also seeing green!
We're in the midst of the holidays and everyone's thinking "What gift should I give this year?" We've got the answer!
Thanksgiving is the day when everyone is supposed to gather together with family, friends and the people who mean the most to them to express their "thanks" for all the wonderful things in their lives. Sometimes people take turns telling everyone what they're thankful for and the list usually includes family members, their job, pets, and their health. This year, we're adding something different to the mix. When it's our turn, you can bet that every member of The Pink Cart team is going to say "We're thankful for Pink Trash Carts!"
That's right, Pink Cart is moving into Canada! Last week, our team unveiled Pink Carts at the Canadian Waste & Recycling Expo in Toronto and they were a hit with haulers and distributors! These new Pink Carts will benefit our newest partner in the fight against breast cancer, the Canadian Cancer Society.
October was a big month for Pink. Breast Cancer Awareness month this year featured pink ribbons and donation programs tied to everything imaginable - from cat food to diapers, to the NFL. The overwhelming amount of Pink shows us how passionate people are about raising awareness about breast health and breast cancer risks. And we on the Pink Cart team felt the love!
Pink Cart Connection: Survivor
Wanted to pass along a little nugget that continues to inspire me throughout my cancer journey (I am 2.5 years cancer free of Stage 3 B, invasive lobular breast cancer!!). May you always find the silver linings and gifts in this life!
What Cancer Cannot Do
Cancer is so limited…
Mom went to Meijer to buy a Pink Cart!
The bright pink rolling trash cart that has captured the hearts of online shoppers has gone retail! Yes, you can still get Pink Carts through local haulers, distributors, but some of you can also simply go to your nearby Meijer and buy a 64-gallon Pink Cart along with a gallon of milk or a couple cans of paint.
The 64-gallon Pink Cart can be found at these Meijer stores.

Pink Cart Connection: Lost her Aunt, Jean, to breast cancer; her cousins and a family friend are breast cancer survivors
My name is Sherrie Bothee, and breast cancer has influenced my life a great deal. In fact, it has changed my life.
In 2004, I walked a 3-day Avon walk from San Jose to San Francisco. I did this with my best friend, her sisters and mom. We did this to honor her mom who is a survivor and doing great! This was the most difficult thing I have ever done in my entire life. We walked 60 miles in three days. The experience at the finish line was extremely moving, and it was incredibly rewarding. It was worth every step.
