Sustainable DIY


There are increasing concerns about the impact of air pollution on our health. You can compare the levels of air pollution that can be released by paints by looking for the VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) labels. Choosing a level that is minimal will reduce your family’s exposure to paint fumesVOC logoAlthough almost all emulsion paint is now water based, it has taken longer to develop alternatives to solvent based trim paints. Gloss paint and varnish that is described as quick drying€¯ or non-yellowing is often water based, but still check the VOC label. For trim paints, low€¯ or minimal€¯ represents fewer fumes.
