How can you take steps to go green in your own home?
Consider using low odor, low-VOC paint for your next color update. VOCâ€™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 pollutantâ€™s into the environment.
Many paint companies offer low odor, low VOC paint products. Consider the following products:
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.
