Painting Your Home? Consider Green!

We’d like to give a shout out to Daniel Macris of Green Wave Solutions (, a eco-friendly contract painter in Atlanta, GA.  He unintentionally brought our attention to “green paints”.

For a house paint to be considered green, it should be compliant with standards set by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System and/or The Master Painters Institute’s (MPI) Green Performance Standard.  Both of these rating systems focus on the reduction of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

There are a number of brands on the market today.

  • Harmony by Sherwin-Williams
  • EcoSpec by Benjamin-Moor
  • Bioshield by Bioshield
  • Safecoat by AFM
  • Green Planets by Green Planet Paints
