This October, Eco-Me is partnering with the Safeway Foundation to raise funds for breast cancer research, and to raise public awareness of the disease. The charitable arm of Safeway Corporation, the Safeway Foundation, in collaboration with hundreds of product vendors, raised a total of $14.5 million through their 2011 in-store campaign, and an overall total of $108 million to date.
Begun in 2011, the Safeway Foundation in-store breast cancer awareness campaign funds top cancer research centers in the US and Canada, contributing to cutting-edge trials and programs. Contributions also support aggressive breast cancer awareness and detection program, including regional mobile mammography program partnerships, providing hundreds of women with free or low-cost mammography screenings. Because of advances in early detection and treatment, millions of women are surviving breast cancer today. Brands that stock the shelves of Safeway stores participate in the efforts with donations and help educate consumers on healthy choices.
Eco-Me is one of those brands, stepping up to support breast cancer awareness and education and to help fund organizations to find a cure. Eco-Me natural cleaning products, a family line of 100% safe and effective cleaners, rely on food-grade and plant-based ingredients to bring the best products to the market. Replacing chemical preservatives with plant essential oils and relying on vinegar bases, Eco-Me stands out amongst the competition as a brand focusing on healthy homes.

About the Eco-Me:
Eco-Me products contain 100% naturally derived ingredients. Clinically tested for safety and effectiveness, Eco-Me products prove that people don’t need chemical preservatives, synthetic fragrances or dyes to get a clean home.
The back-story of Eco-Me is a deeply personal one. In 2005, founder Robin Kay Levine's sister was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 35. With no family history of the disease, or an unhealthy lifestyle contributing to the diagnosis, they looked towards environmental factors as the cause.
Armed with these facts, Robin helped her sister replace traditional cleaners with natural, eco-friendly green alternatives. For example, they discovered that vinegar, a food-grade product, reduces 96% of all bacteria. As her sister recovered, Robin realized she could help women and families take safer care of their homes...Eco-Me was born.
Today, Eco-Me consists of 13 cleaning products, with each cleaner proudly bearing the names of Eco-Me’s friends and family. Each product has a distinct cleansing “personality” based on its many uses and applications.
The company is inspired by the healthy food ingredients in their pantry like vinegar, olive oil and baking soda – going back to the basics with a modern twist!
