Paint it Green

harmony paint

To say that I spend a lot of time in my office would be an understatement. So, when it came time to paint said office, I certainly wanted to choose a paint that was not only friendly to the environment, but also odorless, easy on the pocketbook and, I admit, convenient.

The paint that I found that met those criteria was Sherwin Williams Harmony interior latex paint. Even though TreeHugger.com has this product on Greenwash Watch, I was very happy to know that it uses a no-VOC formula and can say from personal experience that the lack of odor is significant compared to regular paint.

So if you are looking to do some painting in the future, don’t forget that there are lots of options out there to choose from that won’t leave you, or the environment, with a headache.

One thought on “Paint it Green

  1. Thanks for the post — the new paint smell usually mean my wife and I do any painting only during the spring or summer so we can keep the windows open.

    While I try to be green, if there is a big enough convenience (and cost is reasonable), that tends to win out.

    I work in public relations and have worked with companies where green building has grown. However, I don’t see any company or any body being eco-friendly if it doesn’t have some other payback than being good to the environment. That’s a good reason but don’t see it being good enough.

    Will keep the SW paint in mind for that next project.
