Weather-Bos offer a complete line
of environmentally safe architectural finishes. We are industry leaders
in developing products that offer superior performance but are still
environmentally safe for commercial and residential use. As business
people involved with the industry, we are well aware of the challenges
and pressures faced by both sides in this issue. We favor the timely
closure of all toxic dumps, however we do not support the relocation of
these disposal sites. Simply building and then closing these dumps one at
a time will not stop the environmental damage!
We firmly believe the
companies that manufacture products containing dangerous ingredients have
a responsibility to develop environmentally safe products. Yes it may be
difficult and expensive, but not impossible. Weather-Bos is one
example of a manufacturer that chooses to use environmentally safe
ingredients, regardless of the additional cost.
We do not envy the E.P.A.'s
job of monitoring manufacturing, sale, use and disposal of the thousands
of products society uses. Yet every year thousands of products are
registered with the E.P.A. that contain dangerous ingredients which are
then sold and used, ultimately ending up in local disposal sites. We
believe the E.P.A. must take a closer look at products which are not
Finally we are reminded
that ultimately it will be we, the consumers, who decide to solve this
problem. As a market-driven economy, there can be no supply without
demand. By simply refusing to purchase and use the products that contain
dangerous ingredients, we, the buying public, can force these companies
to develop products that are environmentally safe and thus avoid the
toxic dumps of the future. This will not come easy, nor will it be cheap,
for it is often more expensive to make an environmentally safe product.
However, we as a society must be willing to pay the extra price to ensure
the safety of our families, communities and our land.
No matter how long it takes, no matter how great the cost - we, the people along with the governmental agencies - have no choice but to mandate the solutions needed or they will continue to poison the beautiful land we live on. Eliminate the toxic dumps!
Just Say No to Poisons!
