Kirk Mattu | October 25, 2016 | Lifestyle Best of The Best Play

Fortunately, the survivability rate of breast cancer for the more than 26,000 women diagnosed in California this year has increased to 89 percent—much impart to doctors and the aid of community support and fundraising efforts. Here, we praise five standout S.D. companies celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness month is October.
Shoppers can find Suja Juice at any Whole Foods, including the stores in La Jolla and Hillcrest.
1. 1MORE

For those who like do-gooding with a side of sparkle, look no further than S.D.-based 1MORE headphones. With every purchase of the brand’s Swarovski crystal ear buds ($80), the company contributes $10 to Susan G. Komen Foundation. A little bling, bling never felt so good!

2. Green Flash Brewery

For six years Green Flash Brewery has raised funds for breast cancer through its annual Treasure Chest program. The limited-edition Treasure Chest 2016 IPA is back after last year’s high demand. The exotic beer presents flavors of grapefruit, prickly pear juice and hibiscus flowers. Twenty-two ounce bottles ($9) can be found at neighborhood spots like Bottlecraft in Little Italy while supplies last. 2161 India St., 619.487.9493

3. Neiman Marcus Fashion Valley

Think pink with Le Metier de Beaute at Neiman Marcus Fashion Valley. The department store is exclusively offering limited edition eye kits—deemed Le Metier’s Breast Cancer Kaleidoscope ($95)—that will result in a 30 percent donation to local non-profit breast cancer organizations. With four different shade options and two different palettes, supporting a good cause is always in style. 7007 Friars Road, 619.692.9100

4. Passion Planner

The Kickstarter startup Passion Planner has made its mark as a one-for-one company, meaning for every planner bought, a planner is given to a charity. Translation, buying one of these calendars will in turn provide a planner to rockstar companies like the National Breast Cancer Foundation and Keep a Breast—a foundation that supports breast cancer through the arts. This year, Passion Planner made a limited edition Birds and Bees Blush 2017 dated compact planner ($30) and classic planner ($35) to help fund charities that support breast cancer.

5. Suja Juice

Cold pressed juice giant Suja Juice is joining the celebration with its tasty drink, Lavenade—a sweet concoction made up of lemons, red cabbage, lavender flower and maqui berries. For a limited time you can purchase Shop for a Cure—12 discounted, 16-ounce bottles ($46) which will benefit Susan G. Komen San Diego.
