“There are many products that claim to help control allergens and irritants,” said Dr. John McKeon, ASL CEO. “However, some products make false or exaggerated claims. As a result, consumers are often unsure what products are the best choice. By understanding product claims, consumers can make more informed decisions about their purchase, creating a better indoor environment for themselves and their loved ones.” he continued.
The Home Fashions Product Association (HFPA) and Home Textiles Today (HTT) joined forces to co-host this wonderful event, which took place at the Harvard Club.
The HTT celebrated the in-person return of the annual Trailblazers & Titans awards with a silent auction to which ASL were proud to donate the latest LG air cleaner that is CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly®, ,the LG PuriCare™ AeroTower™ Air Purifying Fan Air Purifier.
We also donated 10 licences to the “Healthier Homes Awareness
” program valued at $3970 ($397 each). This is a unique accredited program for professionals seeking to have an empathetic and insightful overview into the challenges faced by families with asthma and allergies. It also highlights frameworks and and toolkits on what they can do to spot new commercial opportunities to create healthier homes.
The HFPA Foundation
is fundraising to support its scholarship program, which provides scholarships to students enrolled in surface design or home product marketing courses at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). As a sponsor the foundation scholarships, we are delighted to say we donated $3000 directly towards the scholarships. This donation was made with honour and enthusiasm because we are true believers in education. To educate is to empower. The future of the textile industry must be underpinned by a holistic approach to production, including the impact that textiles have on our indoor air and therefore on our health.
