Vermont Natural Coatings Decries Trump’s Callous Disregard for The Environment and Health & Welfare of World Citizens
HARDWICK, VT, June 2, 2017– Saying no voice should remain silent in advocating for the environment and health and welfare of following generations, Vermont Natural Coatings today joined a growing chorus of business, environmental and political leaders expressing disappointment in President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord. Vermont Natural Coatings is the industry leader in the manufacture of high performance wood finishes derived from natural, sustainable ingredients.
“Through perseverance and innovation our little company has been committed to shifting an industry away from the dangerous ingredients that contribute to climate change,” said Vermont Natural Coatings Founder & President Andrew B. Meyer. “Our efforts may be small in scale to the global issues related to addressing climate change, but they are purposeful and genuine. This misguided act the President of the United States has declared to the world would put future generations and our planet at risk for perceived political gain.”
Vermont Natural Coatings is a locally based, environmentally sustainable business producing PolyWhey® naturally derived wood finishes. PolyWhey is a patented formula using whey, a byproduct of cheese making, as its transformative ingredient. PolyWhey began as collaboration among farmers, furniture makers and scientists at the University of Vermont to expand the value of Vermont agricultural and forestry industries with new, environmentally sound technology.
The company has advocated for strict indoor air quality standards while manufacturing finishes that are free of all carcinogens and mutagens. It was the only coatings industry company to support enactment of California’s South Coast Air Quality Management District’s safe architectural and industrial coatings standards.
“Vermonters protect our environment and revere the quality of life it provides,” continued Meyer. “We instill this reverence in our children so they treat the environment as if each and every life depends on it. Those are the values passed from generation to generation. We must speak loudly and together in letting President Trump know that’s the future we envision and demand he restore America’s place in the world as the leader in protecting our planet and all its citizens.”
