Chances Environmentally Friendly Products (Chances EFP) grew out of my desire to create real employment opportunities for low functioning adults with autism like my son, Joseph. When Joseph reached age 21 he, like many other individuals with autism, fell off the "services cliff."
When Joseph turned 27 and still did not have a plan to get a job or any promising vocational training, I started to think about ways Joseph could create his own employment opportunities. He loved to keep busy and to use his hands to make things so we started making lavender sachets at home with the lavender from my garden. He loved it! Soon we started to make lavender spray , lavender salve and totally non-toxic, environmentally friendly laundry soap.
