In October, everything turns pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

But lots of companies (like big-name beauty brands and unhealthy food purveyors) use the opportunity to showcase their supposed concern for women’s health while manufacturing products that may contribute to the problem throughout the year.

We sifted through the many ways to support breast cancer awareness and research this month for truly feel-good efforts.

Here are six healthy ways you can proudly wave your pink flag.
