Did you know that there is a very easy way to spot eco-friendly or green paint from conventional ones? Just lift that lid off and sniff. Conventional paints will always have that “fresh paint” scent that is loaded with harmful fumes from volatile organic compounds (VOC) and plasticizers that can cause serious harm to your health even years after painting. Eco-friendly paints, on the other hand, gives off little or no harmful odor since these are low in VOC or made from natural pigments.
The smell test is the easiest way for interior painters to spot ECO-friendly paints from conventional ones. But of course, you can always check the label or ask the manufacturer for the material safety data sheet.
