Interior paints and finishes
Interior paints and wood finishes help you put the finishing touches on an enjoyable living or work space. However fumes from regular paints and wood finishes can create poor indoor air quality for up to five years after painting or renovating. Choosing modern low VOC synthetic paints or natural paints and wood oils, avoids smelly and toxic fumes.
Modern low VOC paints are equally as durable and much the same price as regular paints. The natural paints are more expensive and not quite as durable but they have a unique beauty and are the healthiest choice for chemically sensitive people. more
Exterior paints and finishes
The fumes emitted from exterior paints and finishes contribute to poor environmental air quality in our cities and towns. Many people dont understand the implications of this, thinking because it's outside it's not important to use low VOC products. However the fumes (or VOC's) emitted from exterior paints and finishes affect the health of the person applying them and also contribute to environmental SMOG. Air pollution from SMOG is a major environmental problem. The VOC levels in paints and wood finishes are now subject to tighter and tighter regulation in Europe, America and Australia because of this. Buildings must use low VOC paints and wood finishes inside and out to qualify for Greenstar Ratings. more
