Eco-Monday: Paint the Halls

An easy way to add an eco-friendly element to your house is through paint. When it's time to add a new coat to the kitchen or transform that upstairs bathroom, consider using eco-friendly paint. Average paints contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are often emitted as gases. These chemicals are not healthy for the environment of your house or the environment as a whole. Instead, purchase paints that are approved by the Green Seal Standards. This nonprofit organization is dedicated to improving the environmental standards for many common products. Milk paint is a great alternative because it does not emit VOCs and works well as an interior paint for your house. Any eco-friendly paint uses water as a base instead of a petrochemical base and come in cans composed of 100% recyclable metals. 

Three paints to consider buying are:
1. Benjamin Moore Aura - specifically the GreenGuard
2. Olympic Premium - the Green Seal 
3. Sherwin-Williams Harmony



  1. Copolymer paints are about acclimated on apathetic argosy such as trawlers and sailboats and absolution biocide at a abiding controlled bulk all through their lives, cutting abroad or "ablating" actual abundant like a bar of soap.
