Eco-Friendly Paint Keeps You & the Planet Healthy

Woman house paint

Conventional paint contains many volatile organic compounds, or VOCs , that "outgas" and escape into the air after they are applied. Indoors, these VOCs cause headaches, nausea, achey bones, and general discomfort. Outdoors, they contribute to smog and air pollution.

Whether for indoors or out, your best bet is to buy low- or no-VOC paint. You'll find it offered by more than a dozen companies in thousands of colors and in standard eggshell, glossy, and semigloss finishes. You can also select no-VOC water-based stains, finishes, and paint stripper.

For specific recommendations, check out the brands that have been independently certified for health and sustainabilityby Green Seal  or EcoLogo .

To get the most out of the paint you use:

Buy only what you need. Measure carefully. It's better to go back for more than to be stuck with too much leftover paint you can't use.

Prevent paint from drying out. Cover the paint can with plastic wrap, hammer the lid securely back into place, and store the paint upside down.

Use up stored paint. Apply it for touch-up jobs or smaller projects. Blend similar colors for larger jobs; use as a primer.

Donate leftover paint. Schools, churches, community groups, and kids' clubs may be looking for a free way to give their buildings a face-lift, and you can take a tax deduction when you make the gift.

Don't pour paint down the drain. You can rinse latex paint off brushes, but otherwise leave leftover paint you can't use in open cans in a protected outdoor shed. When the paint air-dries, you can throw it away.

Circulate air. Keep windows open and fans blowing to move air- and paint fumes- out of the house. Avoid as much indoor air pollution as possible.

Lead alert: If your home was painted prior to 1978, the paint probably contains lead. Lead dust is extremely toxic, especially to children and pets. Before y...

Paint Your Home "Green" To Stay Healthy and Protect the Environment

SW-grassbrush Whether you're redecorating your living room, covering up the screaming Pepto pink you once painted the bedroom, or just doing a little touch-up, there's more at stake when you repaint your home than color, What you choose affects your health and the environment, too. Here's how:

Conventional paint contains toxic chemicals called volatile organic compounds, or VOCs , that go airborne as soon as you open the can and start rolling the walls. VOCs contribute to smog when they hit the outside air. Indoors, VOCs in conventional paint have been linked to respiratory and nervous-system disorders, and contribute to the fact that indoor air can be ten times more polluted than it is outside . You know that headachey, cranky feeling you get when a room is being painted? It's usually due to the VOCs.

Fortunately, virtually every paint company in business has now developed a no-VOC, environmentally friendly paint. Most of these work like a charm. They roll on smoothly without polluting the air, and because they're water-based, they clean up easily with soap and water. I recently re-painted my entire home indoors and out with no-VOC paints, and I couldn't have been happier with the finished colors or the fact that I could work and sleep in my home while it was being painted with no ill effects.

Note that no-VOC paints can be somewhat more expensive than the conventional options. I justified the added cost with the peace-of-mind I had knowing my family wasn't getting sick breathing polluted air.

Some brands you should be able to find easily online or in your community include:

Water-Based Paints

Sherwin-Williams carries a Harmony Interior Latex paint that contains zero-VOCs and is practically odorless. Its water-based, anti-microbial formula gives a durable finish that is washable and prevents mildew growth. The paint is available as both a primer and topcoat in eggshell, flat and semi-gloss finishes.

Benjamin Moore's Natura line is another no-VOC, low-odor option that can be tinted to match any color. Water-based, fade-resistant, and washable this "green" paint dries in 30 minutes and can be recoated after only one hour. Bm-natura-four-bucket-image-2
