Household products aren’t our whole lives. But they are a big part of them.
In fact, we often forget how much we use these products: the woodworking glue in carpentry class for the bird house, the odor-eliminating spray used after a new cookie recipe goes wrong, or even the laundry detergent to make camp blankets smell like home. We use these products every day, but do we understand them?
At the Alliance for Consumer Education (ACE), we see these products as tools for maintaining healthy environments, protecting people and families, and ultimately improving lives. We also see the value of education as an essential component of using products correctly, storing them safely, and disposing of them in sustainable ways. Our programs are designed to educate individuals about what it means to use products responsibly, to inspire healthy habits at home, and teach our children and teens about the dangers of product or inhalant abuse.
