A study by the U.S. Green Building Council found that children in sustainable schools have 20-percent higher test scores, and hospitals using environmentally sound technologies discharge patients 2.5 days earlier than traditional hospitals.
However, you can’t afford to go green, right? Wrong! It’s a common misconception that “Going Green” is a costly endeavor. However, there are several low-cost, green remodeling projects that can help you update the look and feel of your home without breaking the bank. The solution: green painting!
Eco-friendly paints come in low or zero VOC (volatile organic compounds) options.
What are Volatile Organic Compounds?
VOCs are gases that are emitted from certain paints. VOCs have been linked to a variety of health problems, including certain cancers. Common VOCs in paint include ethylene glycol, formaldehyde, benzene, and a variety of other flammable or toxic chemicals.
When you decide to update your home, it is important to choose a painting contractor that shares your passion for Mother Earth.
