In their March 2011 issue, Consumer Reports tells us not to assume that greener is better. While many green paints may have a reduction in VOC (volatile oxidizing compounds) they do not have an elimination of these compounds.
The Green label paints had some varying in their ability to stand up to fade resistance, hiding (requiring more paint) and cleaning.
Consumer Reports goes on to say that “Greenguard and Green Seal, environmental certifications based on VOC content and the presence of hazardous substances, are issued by independent organizations. But Green Sure and Green Promise are self-awarded by manufacturers – Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore, respectively.”
What does that label really mean?
- Green Seal
- Green Sure
- Green Promise
