About the Fund
Consumers’ decisions to purchase a wide variety of products are influenced by marketing claims and advertising. The Consumer Products Fund was originally created to help consumers understand product labeling, marketing, advertising and product performance claims; the potential personal and environmental health impacts of product ingredients; and to promote truth-in-advertising and also truth-in-labeling with required warnings and disclosures. Over the past several years, this fund has supported projects that promote truth-telling and consumer understanding regarding product ingredients and performance to protect people’s rights, health, and safety.
