We use exclusively NO VOCs Paints and Eco-friendly Products
VOCs, or Volatile Organic Compounds, are solvents that are released into the air as paint dries. Most VOCs leave the paint as the wall dries, but not all of them do. Recent studies show that paint releases VOCs into the air for years after the initial paint job is done. So, why does this matter? Well...VOCs can cause symptoms including headaches, dizziness, asthma, and allergies. According to the EPA, many VOCs are known carcinogens. A standard gallon of paint contains chemicals such as benzene, methylene, chloride, and others that are linked to cancer. The EPA also cites that levels of pollutants are 2-5 times higher indoors than outside!
Not only are these compounds dangerous for humans, they also have proven to have detrimental effects of the environment. The VOCs found in paint and the CO2 emitted during manufacturing contribute to environmental damage, mainly in the form of air pollution and greenhouse gases. We recycle all of our waste and left overs.
We don't like the idea of our clients or artists breathing in this chemical cocktail. We believe everyone deserves to live a high quality life with optimal health, productivity and inspiration. That's why we're committed to using exclusively No VOC paints and eco products. The beneficial characteristics of no VOC paints include low odor, clean air, and safer technology. In addition, high quality no VOC paint provides premium coverage, excellent durability, and a washable finish. It's a win-win-win... better for you, better for your walls, and better for our planet.
"The Bucket System"
Typically, when an interior painter comes into your home they will ask, “can we use your sink?” They will then wash their tools with your water, on your dime, which could take up to one hour, leaving the faucet running the entire time! That's a lot of wasted water....depending on your water pressure and the faucet, it could be over two hundred gallons wasted!
Brush & Color has developed a unique bucket system that uses just 6 gallons of water. We clean our brushes off-site and off the clock. Our team of artists shares a passion for the air, trees, water and all of the creatures residing on our planet.
