DD--Eco Friendly Paints

What makes a paint environmentally friendly?

Most sources will tell you eco-friendly paints are those without VOCs. Some may mention eco-friendly paints don’t contain toxic biocides, fungicides, or other harmful chemicals. And, a few sources might even remember to mention that eco-friendly paints are made using safe pigments. All of these facts are true and that’s typically where eco-friendly paint brands stop. But, it’s just a fraction of our efforts to create the most environmentally friendly paint in the world.

Here’s what else we do to go above and beyond in our efforts to protect the planet:


At ECOS Paints, we create products that are zero VOC1, and do not contain toxic solvents such as Formaldehyde and Toluene, which can be released into indoor air. In addition, our paints and pigments are premium quality with unparalleled coverage and durability. Paint that spreads further and lasts longer means fewer of our planet’s precious resources are necessary to make your eco design projects.

1Conforms to CDPH 01350 (VOC emissions test taken at 11, 12, & 14 days for classroom and office use). Learn more about VOCs and our commitment to healthier paints here and here.


We use containers that are post-consumer recycled and 100% recyclable. Our shipping boxes are also recycled and recyclable. We use recycled materials wherever possible and recycle whatever we can. We even recycle our processing water.


Energy usage is kept to a minimum and we strongly encourage our clients, customers, friends to do the same.
