When it comes to painting, there are two very distinct types of paint available in the market:
  • Cheap Paint
  • Environmentally Friendly Paint.

Cheap paint is usually made with low-quality materials that don’t last long and can lead to several health and environmental hazards.

On the other hand, enviro paints are created using high-grade, non-toxic and sustainable ingredients that are not only safer for your health but also durable and long-lasting.

Cheap paint can contain hazardous chemicals like lead, benzene, solvents and formaldehyde, polluting indoor air. These chemicals can cause health problems such as skin irritation, respiratory and eye problems, headaches, nausea, and even cancer in extreme cases. In addition to health risks, cheap paint can negatively impact the environment due to its volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released into the atmosphere.

Conversely, enviro paints are designed for safety and sustainability. They are free of toxic chemicals, VOCs and lead and are typically made from natural ingredients such as plant oils or citrus extracts.

Not only do these paints provide cleaner air for indoor spaces, but they also require fewer resources like water and energy for manufacturing. Furthermore, enviro paints generally last longer than cheaper alternatives and can improve durability against harsh weather conditions.

Ultimately, while cheap paint may seem like a cost-effective option in the short term, it can negatively affect your health and the environment in the long run.

On the contrary, enviro paints are an eco-friendly and safe choice that is better for your health and more economical over time due to their improved longevity.

Therefore, when choosing a paint for your home or business, always opt for an enviro-friendly option to ensure the safety of both you and the environment. ​​​​​​​
