Eco-Friendly Paint Hues

Categories: Fashion + Trends, Modern Decor + Objects, Sustainability

Like everyone else these days, I am on an eco-conscious, reduce my carbon footprint, path.  When I saw these paints listed in Readymade Magazine’s Digital Sampler Edition, I just had to share.  All of the paint hues are low voc paints (that’s low volatile organic compounds) for keeping your internal spaces environmentally friendlyLow_voc_paints_1_3

You can get clearer images with costs per gallon and websites from ReadyMade’s online edition article (just go to the contents page, click on Re View, and go through each page until you get to the one on paints…you’ll enjoy the ride).

I first read about ReadyMade going digital from Sustainablog, then visited because I am mad for ReadyMade anyway and I love this thing of magazines having full digital editions online.  Turns out if you subscribe to their online edition, Nau, Inc. that other infamous sustainable (yet fashionable) outdoor apparel company automatically donates 5% of the suscription price to the Offset portfolio of Nau’s partner organization, Climate Trust.

So, does that mean if I paint my walls with one of these Low Voc Paints, that I can then buy into these gorgeous chairs by Stephano Giovannoni for Magis? Although, the polycarbonate was conceived for injection molding without gases.

Check out Climate Trust’s site to tell you about carbon offsets and what they can do to help us reduce our carbon footprint….but really for me to answer the above question, I need to go here.
