If you want to ensure that your home redecoration plans fit a green way of living then there are few things you can be sure to do that are environmentally friendly both for your home and the planet. First, be sure to buy no or low VOC paint. VOCs are the toxins in normal paint that cause that yucky paint smell and can give you a headache. Did you know that VOCs continue to be released from paint for years after you paint your walls? This can endanger the health of your entire family. However, today most paint brands offer a wide variety of No-VOC paint so there is no reason anymore for your paint job to pollute the air in your home. Also, to be friendlier towards the planet, be sure to only buy the amount of paint you need for the project and also try to reuse brushes from past jobs. Waste not want not.
