Use healthier paint

Paint CansConventional paints contain solvents, toxic metals and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can cause smog, ozone pollution & indoor air quality problems with negative health effects, according to the EPA. These unhealthy ingredients are released into the air while you’re painting, while the paint dries and even after the paints are completely dry. Opt instead for zero- or low-VOC paint, made by most major paint manufacturers today.
