Count Your Lucky Stars And Stripes

This Memorial Day we have a lot to be thankful for; a country that offers more freedoms than many on this planet and the men and women who are in our armed forces around the world defending our freedom and the freedom of millions of other individuals from other countries.

This country is also run, for the most part, by the “rule of law” and upholds rights and privileges of all U.S. citizens. It has a legislative structure designed to protect the rights of property owners and establish rules and regulations to protect the citizens from harm due to negligence on the part of individuals or corporations.

With the growth of our manufacturing and industrial base we have seen the introduction of a variety of air and water pollutants that can be harmful to both the environment and to people. The US legislators created the Environmental Protection Agency in 1970 to establish an agency that would oversea and create rules and regulations for companies that produced any harmful pollutants.

The advent of the EPA created a much needed knowledge base to both industry and the citizens of the US. Many studies were done to determine the overall affect of various air and water pollutants. It was determined that considerable damage was being done to our environment and to the people who lived in and around these facilities. Over the years the EPA has made significant in roads in developing a stringent set of rules and regulations for any size company to keep them from doing any damage to the air we breathe or the water we drink.

There are many countries around the world that not only don’t share our freedoms but have few laws and regulations regarding pollution of any type. It has only been in the past 10 years that the world has begun to notice there is a relationship between what we spew into the air and water and the significant affect it has on our health.

We can also appreciate the US companies that have designed and developed various types of air and water filtration systems to allow us to maintain a very high level of air and water purification. One of these companies is Pure Air Systems. PAS has been making HEPA and Carbon based air filtration systems since 1985. Just 15 years after the EPA was founded.  Their filtration systems are used in the residential, commercial, institutional, medical and industrial markets. They also have a strong presence overseas.
