The Coalition to Prevent Lead Poisoning is an advocacy and education nonprofit organization composed of nearly 100 individuals and community organizations who share the following conviction: Childhood lead poisoning can and must end.
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 preventing lead poisoning.”
Barthel made the strategic decision to add Bitrex® Bitterant Technology, which is the bitterest substance known, to their lead paint treatment product, ECOBOND® to reduce accidental ingestion of potentially harmful materials. This 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.
Recently, there's been increasing publicity in the news throughout the United States about the impact of unsafe lead paint on children's health. One of the states highly impacted by lead paint poisoning is New Jersey. Recently, Governor Christie signed a bill into law that reduces the threshold of lead levels in a children' blood that requires the state to take action.
The Ohio Department of Health just published a list of 540 hazardous homes that should be vacated due to lead. It's the last step to get property owners to clean up the houses and get rid of the poison lurking inside.
Lead poisoning impacts hundreds of families in Milwaukee and some parents say they don’t know where the lead is coming from. The City of Milwaukee launched the website leadsafeMKE.com earlier this year to help parents learn about lead poisoning.
With the increased awareness of lead hazards in our communities, it is important to have a good understanding of the lead hazard and your options. There are several methods for reducing lead hazards, the two most frequently used methods include:
- Interim control
Abatement is designed to eliminate lead based paint or lead based hazards for up to 20 years. Abatement includes removing the lead based paint and dust, encapsulating the lead based paint or replacing the lead based components.
Interim Control temporarily (<20 years) reduces exposure to lead-based paint hazards through: repairs, painting, maintenance, special cleaning, occupant-protection measures, clearance and education programs. Some of the typical activities include: paint stabilization, correcting dust generating conditions and creating smooth, cleanable horizontal surfaces.
But NOW there is a NEW method that takes interim control to the next level because ECOBOND® Lead Defender® is our Patented Paint-it-on Leave-it-on® Formula which seals and treats the lead and lead dust in lead-based paint. This is an exciting NEW category we are calling “Treatment”.
