3. October 12th is Environmental Child Health Day.

The second annual #CEHDay is October 12th. Show your commitment to protecting children’s health by endorsing this day of awareness and taking action.  Share with your friends and colleagues and spread the word: Together we can achieve a society where all children have access to clean air and water, safer and healthier foods, and safer toys and products!

4. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

In October we want to take the time to bring awareness to those affected by breast cancer. We know people whose diets are rich in plant-based foods have a lower risk of developing certain types of cancer.
