Baby Steps To Green

Posted by liz on Jan 26th, 2007

How can you take steps to go green in your own home?

Consider using low odor, low-VOC paint for your next color update. VOC’s, volatile organic compounds, are often used in paint and emit gasses into the air contributing to sick building syndrome, poor air quality and releasing air pollutant’s into the environment.

Many paint companies offer low odor, low VOC paint products. Consider the following products:

Benjamin Moore – ECO-SPEC
Sherwin Williams – Harmony
American Pride

I personally have used the Eco Spec Primer, Flat, Eggshell and Semi-gloss products. The low-odor allows my family to live in our home during a color change, with little impact on their heath and our indoor air quality.

Look at the Featured Design for a low-odor, low VOC paint application.
