The KEY Pledge Laundry Safety Campaign is designed to create public awareness and engagement with single-load, liquid-laundry packet safety.
The campaign, which began in June 2013, reached more than 350 million consumers in its first year.
“Single-load liquid laundry packets have become increasingly popular to consumers nationwide because they are an easy and convenient way to do laundry. But, like every other household cleaner, parents need to keep the laundry packets away from children,” said Nancy Bock, ACI senior vice president of education. “The campaign is making strides to reduce unwanted exposures by educating parents and caregivers about the safe use and storage of liquid laundry packets,”
The ASAE “Power of A” Awards honor outstanding efforts to create a better world made by associations and industry professionals.
“Congratulations to ACI for benefitting not just their own industry or profession, but society at large,” said Paul Pomerantz, CAE, chair of the “Power of A” Awards’ Judging Committee.
