Why eco-friendly paint

Let’s face it, as a society, this past year has taught us that our personal health is precious and we should take steps to protect and maintain it. If we ever took our health for granted before we certainly can’t anymore. After COVID-19 and the Global pandemic it has served as an opportunity for us to press restart, re-educate and re-establish ourselves on our choices and daily routines. For some that means quitting their unhealthy eating habits and for others that means looking for natural alternatives or going green.

Home renovations have been on the upswing due to so many of us working from home. One of the best and most affordable ways to add value to your home and make a big impact right away is repainting. The combined trends of sustainability and going-green can create challenges in finding green-friendly solutions when painting your home. Many consumers don’t know where to start and when looking for products like eco-friendly paints – this is where we can help.

Green Friendly Paint is locally sourced and manufactured in a state-of-the-art facility located in Woodbridge, Ontario. Over 95% of the ingredients found in the paint have been sourced in and around the Greater Toronto Area. With low VOC levels (Volatile Organic Compounds) it has been proven to be safer for the respiratory system than other popular brands. VOC’s are known to cause short and long-term damage to the lungs and body with excessive exposure due to the harsh chemicals used in their production. Interior paints are also culprits for respiratory issues since VOC’s are emitted at a rate 2-5 times higher indoors than outdoors. GFP paint, however, has been Green, LEED and MPI certified and maintains industry-leading standards which has kept them on the cutting edge of green-friendly paint solutions.

GFP paint is safe to use in a household with babies, young children, pets and the elderly. It is also a durable and washable product that resists mould and keeps humidity from penetrating into your walls. What does this mean for a parent with toddlers or small pets? Well, it makes it easy to remove pet stains, marks and crayon from the walls and keeps your walls looking new and fresh for years. It’s a win-win for all.
