ECOBOND Paint Partners with Miller Paint of Portland, Ore.
ARVADA, Colo.—June 30, 2021—ECOBOND Paint, a provider of environmental products focused on protecting human health from the dangers of lead, smoke, and odors, recently announced Miller Paint of Portland, Ore. as the newest distribution partner for its line of lead-based paint treatment and odor blocking solutions. With over 130 years in business, Miller Paint is a leader in the paint manufacturing industry with a foundation built on the trust of its customers, employee ownership, a focus on superior product quality, providing extraordinary customer service, and championing art in the community.
“Our paints are still manufactured locally in Portland, Oregon and continue to be known for outstanding quality and durability,” said Miller Paint Technical Director Steve Serra. “At Miller Paint, we are committed to protecting our environment and find ways in our manufacturing process to reduce our environmental impact. As part of this commitment, we reuse tank wash water during our production of large batches of paint. We recycle paint can labels and shipping materials at our factory. In addition, we are committed to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by using local vendors for raw materials when possible. We make our paint where we live. With our stores a part of neighborhoods throughout the Pacific Northwest, our paint does not have to travel far from our factory in northeast Portland to our shelves, reducing our total carbon footprint.”
James M. Barthel, President and creator of ECOBOND, commented, “We are excited to bring on Miller Paint and resonate strongly with their commitment to environmental issues. As an environmental paint products manufacturer focused on the treatment of hazards dealing with lead, smoke, and odor, we strive to align with like-minded business partners.”
To combat the lead paint problem, ECOBOND’s LeadDefender® product seals and treats the lead and lead dust in lead-based paint. “The lead problem came in a paint can; the solution can too,” Barthel continued. “We know that ECOBOND LeadDefender is so much more than just paint. Infusing our lead paint treatment formulation in a patented Paint-it-on Leave-it-on application, our customers enjoy peace of mind from the dangers of lead paint. We feel honored to be part of the solution, especially when we consider the additional purpose in protecting children and families by including an additional layer of protection in our treatment. Bitrex is the bitterest substance known and is added to ECOBOND to reduce accidental ingestion of potentially harmful materials. Bitrex creates an added safety barrier to further protect children from lead poisoning by reducing the number of paint chips or dust a child may ingest.”
ECOBOND OdorDefender is a professional-grade, eco-friendly odor-blocking paint that seals and blocks dangerous and unpleasant odors from cigarette smoke, pot smoke, and fire, as well as pet odors.
