“Armpocket is pleased to partner with the Breast Cancer fund in support of their efforts,” announced Armpocket Owner and Founder, Jytte Nielsen. “We couldn't be happier to provide assistance to this remarkable group as they promote active life-styles and alert everyone to the environmental and other preventable causes of breast cancer.”

Eco-Friendly Armpockets are made with recycled fabric from discarded plastic bottles along with naturally sustainable, moisture-wicking bamboo.. The pink Armpocket SPORT 20TM is available with a touch-thru screen for handy access to iPhoneTM, BlackberryTM, or other touch-sensitive, portable electronic devices like the iPod NanoTM or MP-3 players.

“We are very grateful to our like-minded supporters like Armpocket who are helping in this effort to prevent breast cancer,” added Julie Homan, Senior Cause Marketing Coordinator of the Breast Cancer Fund. “Partnerships such as this provide not only important financial support, but also much-needed awareness about the link between toxic chemicals in our environment and increased rates of breast cancer.”
