Businesses 'Pinkwash' donations into profit

Businesses 'Pinkwash' donations into profit


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Every October, billions of dollars are donated towards awareness and research for breast cancer, but not every pink product that is purchased benefits the cause.

Last year, Business Insider found that only 8 percent of NFL pink merchandise proceeds went towards research with 88 percent going towards the corporations that made them.

"Each year, the public is spending billions of dollars on pink ribbon products. It's working for companies, it's not working for women," Karuna Jaggar said, executive director of Breast Cancer Action, a California-based advocacy group trying to bring awareness to pin-ribbon marketing known as 'pinkwashing'. "Research shows that if you put a pink ribbon on a product a company will sell more of them. I think what's happening is that companies are exploiting the public's good will."

Agritourism keeping Arkansas farms alive


MAYFLOWER, Ark. (KTHV) - Have you picked out the perfect pumpkin yet? Or have you thought about going on a hayride? Fall activities like these are fun for you, but did you know they provide a secondary source of income for many Arkansas farmers?

As the name suggests, Agritourism combines agriculture and tourism by traveling to the farm to spend money on seasonal activities like pick-your-own and corn mazes. Agriculture experts predict Arkansas will have a stronger Agritourism year than ever before.

"This one," said Brady Grice.

With all his might, 5-year-old Brady Grice goes for the biggest one.

"Whoa," said Grice.

His family sets aside more than just a day for Fall fun.

"The Fall is by far my favorite time of the year," said Lisa Schaefers.
