All Of Able South Carolina Offices And Events Are Fragrance-Free.

The chemicals used in scented products can make some people very sick, especially those with multiple chemical sensitivities. While some people have minor reactions to the chemicals around them, other people are much more seriously affected. 

Just a trace of perfume, pesticide, or tobacco smoke could make a person with multiple chemical sensitivities and allergies sick for hours, days, or longer. 

Just as physical barriers prevent wheelchair access, chemical use (i.e. fragrances) can prevent entry into public facilities for those with multiple chemical sensitivities. Reasonable accommodations can enable people with multiple chemical sensitivities to enjoy access to work, public facilities, and other settings.

This is why Able South Carolina makes the following request: No fragrances, please! To accommodate those with allergies, breathing conditions, or multiple chemical sensitivities, please do not smoke or wear scented products when attending Able South Carolina events.
