Choose zero or low-VOC paint. The walls in this serene office are green....but are they really? The buzzword in green painting are VOCs, which are chemicals emitted from paint, among other sources. VOCs can cause all sorts of unpleasant health risks, so it's best to avoid your exposure whenever possible. Fortunately, due to overwhelming consumer demand, most paint manufacturers are producing low or zero emission paints for people like us, who want gorgeous and colorful walls that we can enjoy without worrying about toxic gasses making our homes unhealthful.
