Why Consider Eco-Friendly Paints?

People are always talking about ways to turn your house “green.” A few of the most common examples involve investing in energy-saving appliances, using solar panels and increasing your recycling initiatives. But have you ever heard about eco-friendly paint? If you’re planning on adding color to your home while staying “green,” try considering eco-friendly paints rather than regular paints.

Eco-friendly paint

Green painting is not only better for the environment, but it’s better for your health, too. Some other benefits of green painting include:

  • No harmful chemicals: You won’t have to think about the chemicals you’re inhaling while you paint inside of your home.
  • No harsh smell: You don’t have to worry about the powerful smell when you open up your new can of paint.
  • Low VOC: The volatile organic compound levels that are present in most regular paint is extremely low in eco-friendly paints.

The only downside of green painting is the cost. However, when you look at the long lifespan and color retention that the eco-friendly paint offers, you could be saving money in the long run by not having to do any touch ups or extra coats.

Regular paint

The common paint that you find at your local hardware store may be more readily available, but are the damages it causes worth the accessibility? When choosing a paint product, keep these things in mind regarding regular, commercial paints:

  • Harmful chemicals: Traditional paints usually contain chemicals like naphthalene, benzene, and toluene – all of which can be dangerous to inhale.
  • Powerful smell: Determining if the paint is a traditional paint or an eco-friendly paint is easy. The powerful smell is sure to give it away when you open up the can.
