We all know that ‘fresh paint’ smell isn’t good for us…but the thing is even after the smell is gone, standard paints can off gas nasties such as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) for months and months, aggravating asthma, irritating our eyes, nose and throats and causing lethargy. And the chemicals used in paints can have a nasty environmental legacy.
You might be surprised to know there are alternatives - we certainly were! BIO paints are high quality non-toxic paints made from plants and minerals, not petrochemicals. They can be colour matched to most colours, and are great to work with. And we love that these paints are 100% biodegradable so you can wash the brushes out onto the grass!
