Trudeau Thirsts for a Breast Cancer Cure These products are a must-buy!

Whether choosing to race for a cure or donating towards the cause, October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a great time to remind us to get involved and lend a helping hand. The Trudeau Corporation has been supporting the fight against breast cancer with their exclusive BCRF collection of hydration bottles and thermal tumblers and mugs. These products, developed with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, are designed exclusively for Trudeau’s product donation program and are sold in support of breast cancer research initiatives. To date Trudeau has donated over half a million dollars to BCRF alone.

My favorite item is  The Lulu Travel Tumbler!  This 16oz tumbler features a stainless steel exterior accented with a bright pink floral pattern and matching lid. The top is a leak resistant flip, sip-and-go lid and comes equipped with a non-slip base, making it fun and functional! The interior consists of polypropylene and double wall insulation, which allows for heat retention up to 2 hours. This mug comes with a 5-year warranty. SRP $14.99. 

What I really like is that it keeps my coffee warm for so long! It is also quite stylish and is now my favorite to-go-to Travel Tumbler! I don’t go to work without it!

My other favorite is The 24oz BCRF Cool Off Hydration Bottle from Trudeau is perfect for long trips. The bottle is guaranteed leak-proof with a non-slip grip and is double wall insulated, which helps keep drinks colder and prevents condensation. Made of SAN, the lid comes with a protected flexible straw for easy drink accessibility during activity. BPA Free. Comes with a 5-year warranty. SRP $17.99.

I love this stylish Cool Off Hydration Bottle and recommend it highly!

They also have other great products available such as the Rejuvenate Water Bottle and the Trudeau’s Drive Time Travel Mug.

You can find them at  &!  Don’t forget that the proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Research Fund!

Popeye is Pet of the Week!


“Mmm-boy! Trick or treat!” exclaimed Popeye as he licked his chops at the thought of peanut-butter biscuits and doggie jerky that he’ll accept gently from your hand and lick your fingers for good measure. Popeye’s a brown-and-white pit bull terrier, a little over a year old, and he’s going as a pirate this Halloween—he says that it’s the closest he could come to a sailor man. Meet Popeye on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A575546.
