Natural, Low VOC and Zero VOC Paint for Clean Air

We have been looking for paints that are natural, Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) or Zero VOC. Low VOC paints.

Painting with eco friendly paint has taken a little time and effort just to find the paint itself.

I have heard that the paint may not cover as well, so more coats of paint may be needed.

Some eco-friendly paints may have to be ordered by the store upon specific request. Therefore a paint project requires some advance planning just to have the correct supplies.

Painting with an eco friendly paint is safer for the environment than most commonly used paints.

Eco friendly paints are less toxic and less likely to cause allergic reactions. Painting with eco friendly paint takes a special effort, but pays off in better health and a healthier environment.

Here are some paints we have looked at:


We have opted for Sherwin-williams because their Harmony paint has no VOC and has great colors.
