Paint is toxic, eco-paints are not. Lowering your toxic load is important to protect your health. Our eco-paints are beautiful, organic as well as solvent-free.
Why Eco-paints are popular
Painting and decorating in the 21st century means eco-friendly paints first. For many families or health-conscious individuals, especially in forward-thinking cities like Edinburgh, we are looking to keep toxic materials out of our living spaces. So health and well being is the biggest concern.
In addition, eco-paints are good for the environment! Whether you are doing your own DIY home painting project or hiring an Edinburgh painting and decorating company, you should look into VOC-free paints. VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds) are the airbourne contaminants that you don't need in the air you breathe indoors. If you research eco-paints or 'green paint' you will see this is not a fad, there are legitimate concerns with keeping your home air quality safe. VOC-containing paints are required to be labeled by current UK and EU law.
There are different grades of eco-paint or VOC-free paint depending on how pure your needs are: some immune systems are highly allergic and require a higher grade of VOC-free paint. Note: The more high-grade VOC-free paints tend to be much more expensive and also may limit your colour options.

Eco-paints aka solvent-free, zero-VOC paints--are available for interior or exterior surfaces. Thankfully, today there are quite a few eco-paint options available on the market (with varying price ranges). The demand for eco-paint has also led to paint being marketed as 'organic paint', when it really is not truly eco-friendly. We can help you sort out the difference and get you the right eco-paint, that meets your standards.
