Discounted juice cleansers offered at New York Fashion Week

Discounted juice cleansers will be offered at New York Fashion Week this year. ABC News reported the shocking news on Jan. 29. The Council of Fashion Designers of America made the controversial decision. It was a dangerous marketing move on their part.

The CFDA collaborated with Organic Avenue, a weight loss company. They will sell the juice drinks during Fashion Week, starting on Feb. 7. Some are concerned that this move promotes eating disorders.

The CFDA and Organic Avenue are said to offer the discounted juice cleansers to fashion models in the shows. Models also have a choice of two salads: a dandelion salad and a cauliflower salad.Read more
