A developer of environmental products, Ecobond Paint, has announced a new paint that will eliminate amongst other things, the smell of marijuana smoke. Called OdorDefender, the innovative product could have a potentially huge market. As reported in 2016, Gallup noted that over 40 million adults in the United States admit to smoking pot. Broken down, those numbers represent an estimated 15 million households impacted by pot smoke.
"We are passionate about restoring our environment and protecting people from the hazards of smoke & odor with our patent-pending ECOBOND OdorDefender paint technology,” stated James Barthel, President, and creator of ECOBOND. “We are pleased to announce our latest breakthrough in smoke odor removal.”
He continued, “As we researched the prevalence of this problem, we discovered facts and statistics on both the staggering number of cigarette as well as marijuana smokers, combined with scientific studies on an interesting phenomenon called 'Thirdhand Smoke', we knew we had to develop a solution, and I'm pleased to report that we have!"
Odor can be absorbed by furniture and slowly emitted over time. One of the key advantages of OdorDefender, over other anti-odor products, is that the product is always absorbing offensive odors in the air. The OdorDefender formulation was tested against and outperformed alternative products on the market in every key category, according to a statement released by the company.
Barthel commented, "Typically a revolutionary new breakthrough causes the price to be high, but because ECOBOND OdorDefender uses a proprietary specialty formulation, we are now able to bring this to market at an affordable low price. The formulation includes resins, food-grade mineral additives, and alginate from seaweed; nature's most effective absorber of toxic pollutants. This powerful combination gives the peace of mind that odor issues will be sealed and blocked, while protecting human health."
