ECOBOND®, LLC is proud to announce their newest distributor, Mission Hills Environmental Services Inc. who has been working in Canada on Abatement projects for several years primarily with demolition contractors in abating residential and commercial buildings prior to demolition.

When asked why they decided to become an ECOBOND Distributor, Senior Project Manager Bill Ferguson, replied: “I personally have been involved in the abatement and remediation of contaminated sites in Canada for some thirty (30) years, and have seen may changes and new technologies emerge in all of aspects of contaminated sites remediation in Canada over this time.  In dealing with the issue of lead in paint, I was very interested and impressed when I learned of the new ECOBOND Lead Defender products. Traditional methods of dealing with lead in paint can be extremely expensive to deal with, especially in northern remote areas were the hazardous waste disposal costs can make a project cost prohibitive to many clients. The treatment method using this product will greatly assist Canadian clients in dealing effectively with the issue of lead in paint and a Canadian distributor will make the accessibility of this product much easier for Canadians.  Workers’ safety, environmental compliance and cost effectiveness are key requirements for any company and using the ECOBOND products will greatly assist Canadian companies in dealing more effectively with these business requirements.  If I can help provide a new work-safe environmental product, service or technology to improve Canadians overall Health, Safety and Environment, count me in!”

“We are so excited about the increased interest in Canadian distributors for our proven & patented ECOBOND® family of products with lead paint treatment technology” stated James Barthel, President and creator of ECOBOND®. We look forward to serving these regions to help keep residential and commercial projects safe from the potential dangers of lead and lead dust.”

The Centers for Disease Control reports: “Today, childhood lead poisoning is considered the most preventable environmental disease among young children, yet approximately half a million U.S. children have blood lead levels above 5 micrograms per deciliter, the reference level at which CDC, recommends public health actions be initiated. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and CDC are committed to eliminating this burden to public health.”  The CDC reports that today at least 4 million households have children living in them that are being exposed to high levels of lead.

James M. Barthel, creator of the ECOBOND® family of products stated, “We enthusiastically embrace a mission of restoring our environment and protecting people from the hazards of lead with our patented ECOBOND® lead paint treatment technology. It is for this reason that we are pleased to donate $100 for every 100 gallons of ECOBOND® - Lead Defender® or ECOBOND® - Lead Defender® PRO, to further the cause of organizations including: The Coalition to Prevent Lead Poisoning and The Colorado Lead Coalition.”
