Here at Autism Hope Alliance, we love Earth Friendly Products (ECOS). ECOS’ products are all thoughtfully formulated to clean powerfully without harsh chemicals, dyes, or synthetics. They believe that whats on the inside counts. Thats why they have spent nearly 50 years (!) creating and perfecting thoughtfully sourced cleaners that work great and are safer for people and the planet.

Family owned and operated since 1967, this is a team of mothers, fathers, chemists, visionaries and pioneers who passionately uphold the idea that everyone should have access to delightful, affordable cleaning products. If that’s not Autism Approved, we don’t know what is!

That’s why we are thrilled to partner with both ECOS and ALDI stores in Southern California now through June 11th. If you are an ALDI shopper in the Golden State, check out our Buy One, Give One campaign.. What does that entail, you ask? We checked in with Vivian P. Panou , Director of Special Events and Programs, to learn more about this fantastic partnership!

Get to Know ECOS and ALDI

AHA: We’re so excited for your Buy 1, Give $1 campaign with AHA and ALDI grocery stores! What will this promotion entail?

Vivian: Beginning Monday, April 16, through Monday, June 16th, customers who shop at ALDI stores in Southern California will have the opportunity to give hope to families affected by Autism. For every ECOS product purchase, we will give $1 to Autism Hope Alliance. So if a shopper buys five ECOS cleaners, we will donate $5 to AHA. Our goal is to raise as much money as possible for this very worthy cause and organization.

AHA: Why is Autism Hope Alliance an important cause for Earth Friendly Products?

Vivian: We understand that AHA is committed to truly helping families who have been affected by autism, and they do everything they can to make life better for these children and families. Given the alarming number of children who are diagnosed with autism each year, we believe its important to support an organization that is making a real, positive change in peoples lives, and AHA is doing that.

AHA: What are some of ECOS’ products we can find in ALDI?

Vivian: Our ECOS laundry detergent, our ECOS dish soap, ECOS all-purpose cleaners.

AHA: What makes ECOS’ products a better alternative for our community to purchase than some of the other brands on the market?

Vivian: ECOS products help families affected by autism families create a safer, healthier home and a safer, healthier planet for their children. Our plant-powered products are made without dyes, petroleum-derived cleaning agents, phosphates, phthalates, optical brighteners, and a variety of other potentially harmful ingredients used in conventional cleaning products.  We believe everyone should have access to safer cleaners; thats why we ensure that our products are not only safer and effective, but are also affordable for families on a budget, including families facing the financial challenges of treating autism.
