ECOBOND Paint Announces the Launch of the National Military Housing Lead Poisoning Protection Initiative in Response to a Defense Funding Bill Amendment to Examine Nationwide Lead Poisoning in Military Housing.
In our recent Press Release, it was reported that in a recent article in Reuters, it was reported that “Privatizing U.S. military housing was supposed to protect service members’ families. Unfortunately, instead, some of their children are being poisoned by lead. A Reuters investigation unearths dangers in base homes, lapses in military oversight. After his son was poisoned, a decorated colonel pushed the Army to ensure other children were not harmed in military housing.”
The article continued to say that after Army Colonel J. Cale Brown’s son was diagnosed with lead poisoning, contractors ordered their home they rented to be tested for lead. The results: “At least 113 spots in the home had lead paint, including several peeling or crumbling patches, requiring $26,150 in lead abatement. “
Business Insider reported on August 24, 2018 that “Eight US senators are pushing for a federal review of the military’s plans to protect children from exposure to lead, citing a Reuters report on lead poisoning in military housing. In an amendment filed this week to a defense funding bill, the senators, including senior members of the Senate Armed Services and Veterans’ Affairs committees, are asking the Government Accountability Office to examine the military’s handling of lead poisoning risks nationwide. Most military family housing has been privatized and is operated by corporations in partnership with the branches of the armed services.”
ECOBOND® Paint LLC is leading an initiative to increase awareness of this issue and help protect military families and children negatively impacted by the dangers of lead paint. Outreach efforts have been initiated with the leading private military housing management companies to offer banding together to solve the pressing problem of lead paint poisoning in military housing. These Protection Partners will be taking an active role in eradicating the danger of potential lead poisoning threats in military housing.
James M. Barthel, creator of ECOBOND® Lead Defender® commented, “We are highly concerned about this nationwide problem of lead paint in military housing. We are pleased to be at the forefront of the battle against lead poisoning with caring Protection Partners that are the leaders in real estate and property management for military housing. Our Lead Defender formula includes Bitrex®, a bitter-tasting additive to discourage oral contact which creates an added safety barrier to further protect children from lead poisoning by reducing the amount of paint chips or dust a child may ingest.” Barthel continued.
ECOBOND® is the premier provider of environmental products focused on protecting human health from the dangers of lead. The patented Paint-it-on Leave-it-on® formula is different than encapsulants and abatement because it is a lead-based paint treatment providing an easy and affordable solution to this devastating national health crisis. As reported in the Reuters story, abatement can be extremely expensive. According to the EPA, professional lead-based paint removal for the following three options costs about $8 to $15 per square foot or about $9,600 to $30,000 for a 1,200- to 2,000-sq. ft. house. ECOBOND® Lead Defender® comes in at .25/sq. ft or about $300-$500 for the same 1,200- to 2,000-sq. ft. house.
Barthel continued, “We want our U.S. Military, which exists to serve the American people, and to defend the Nation, to enjoy peace of mind from their family being negatively impacted by the dangers of lead paint in their military housing. This will be accomplished with our patented lead paint treatment, ECOBOND® Lead Defender®.”
