Alternatives to Products with VOC's

The danger of volatile organic compounds comes from many sources common in our daily lives. One of the many things that you can do to live green is use VOC-free paints, household furnishings and other non-toxic supplies. VOC-free paints are a perfect choice for painting in your home, as they are free from the noxious odors that are usually associated with outgassing. Regular paints, varnishes, and finishes release low-level toxic emissions into the air that may linger for years after any painting job is complete.

Check for VOC information before purchasing the above products, especially paint. The lower the VOC content, the safer the product is for your health. The number ranges are from 5 to 200.
