I am writing today because I am upset that certain individuals and certain companies take advantage of us, the public, allowing their desire for money, large amounts of it, to take over to the detriment of everything else. And we allow it by not doing due diligence in research, trusting the media and advertisements, or maybe by feeling we are cornered, in a bind, and have no choice but to use these companies. There is a TV show on Netflix now called "Dirty Money". It highlights 6 scenarios of companies, VW e.g., and individuals who have knowingly made billions of dollars off consumers, people who believed in these quick loan sharks, pharmaceutical conglomerates and automobile manufacturers. These companies and individuals had no regard for the consumer at all. And it has happened to our industry of paint and paint manufacturing...whatever kind of paint or for whatever purpose, safety and toxicity are not as important as bottom line money making. Where is the care, concern and morality of paint manufacturers when there is the potential of impacting lives with paint through bad air quality and off gassing? Life is or should be all about making our world a better place in which to live and creating a better life for our children.
When paint manufacturers knowingly continue to put lead or antifreeze or solvents in their products and hide this from us, who is affected? There are good and honest companies in our world. We are out there. It is our due diligence to find them and support them, for ourselves and our children. Find the good ones, support the good ones and let others know about the good ones. We can fix this!!!!
