Our initiative with the little ones

“We wanted to make a special gift for all elementary school children because we strongly believe that education and respect for the place we live in is an essential basis that we should all have. Today’s children will be able to change tomorrow, and we wanted to help them understand the importance of all this.”

 AEC Illuminazione Marketing Team

AEC gave the primary school children of the area stainless steel water bottles: the #KIDSBOTTLES. A sustainable design solution, for daily hydration, aimed at completely eliminating the use of disposable plastic bottles. Water bottles have been an important communication vehicle to raise awareness of the importance of environmental issues and the reduction of plastic that pollutes the seas around the world every day.

In AEC, people are the most important asset, a resource that allows us to guarantee competence and professionalism in all company aspects.
