Awareness and concern over environmental issues continues to rise, increasing the demand for environmentally friendly alternatives to traditional house paint, which is full of toxin releasing VOC’s. There are a number of environmentally safe paint alternatives today, whereas in the past the options were much more limited. There are now many more selections, and a wider array of paint color options is available.
What makes for an environmentally safe paint? According to Environmental Protect Agency standards, in order to be acceptable, the VOC levels of paint must be lower than 250 grams per liter. Paints that contain less than 5 grams per liter can be labeled and sold as “No VOC” paint. Among the new generation of environmentally friendly paint choices, the choice that truly contains no VOC’s is Real Milk Paint.
