Pink October #13

From the Avon Pink Ribbon Products website:

This pseudo ChapStick can be yours for only $1.50.

Avon will donate 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of its pseudo ChapStick to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. The amount is specified as $1.33.

So now you know. Pseudo ChapStick sells for almost 9 times what it costs to make. Wow. But it's all for a good cause, right?


Oh, and not to be undone, real ChapStick has also gone pink.

Pseudo chapstick? If it's not really chapstick, what is it? An empty pink tube?

The markup in retail is usually at least 100%, which is so not comforting.

I am all for the pink and everything associated with it, but what's pseudo-chapstick??
