Non-Toxic Indoor Painting

If you have house projects in mind for the New Year, then remember to educate yourself on products and be safe. When it comes to painting a room, keep the room well ventilated and look for “non-toxic” paint. Most paints contain a level of VOC (volatile organic compounds), which evaporate and can cause harmful chemicals in the air. Long exposure to these chemicals have been known to cause kidney disease and cancer. Non-toxic paints are made with natural products like plant dyes, essential oils, mild protein, clay and resin.

Read paint labels for the healthiest choices in creating your new room! In some cases the price might be a bit higher, but it’s well worth it to keep your family safe.
