The Alliance for Consumer Education (ACE) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2000. The ACE mission is "to promote responsible and beneficial use of products to ensure a safer, healthier and cleaner environment in homes, businesses and the community." Its core program areas are: Inhalant Abuse Prevention, Disease Prevention, Poison Prevention, and Product Management. ACE is affiliated with the Consumer Specialty Products Association.
Inhalant Abuse - ACE’s Inhalant Abuse Prevention Program seeks to raise awareness, educate individuals and communities and help prevent the epidemic of inhalant abuse among children.
Disease Prevention - ACE's Disease Prevention Program seeks to promote a healthier environment in homes, businesses and the community by providing the information necessary to break the cycle of disease transmission.
A new addition to the Disease Prevention Program - "Ace Clean" is an animated cartoon super hero designed to teach kids about good health through cleanliness and proper hygeine practices. Together with our Cleaning Products Division ACE developed an educational online game to further educational outreach called Ace Clean's Trivia Challenge.
Poison Prevention / Product Management - Heroes of the Health League is ACE’s newest program! It’s an all encompassing look at the home, covering topics relating to poison prevention, proper disposal and storage, pet safety, fire safety, and sustainability concepts (light usage, water usage, recycling, etc).
