Makeover Your Home With Low/Zero VOC Paints & Primers: Part 1

Happy Friday green cleaning and living enthusiasts 🙂 The next few weeks we want to talk low and no VOC paints and primers. What better place to begin than primers? Priming is important both for painting walls and furniture… especially furniture. But often primers have a TERRIBLE odor and off-gas nasty chemicals. There are better alternatives though… and here are just a few!

Benjamin Moore Natura Interior Waterborne Primer – This is a low odor, zero-VOC, 100% acrylic interior latex primer/sealer that is best suited for indoor residential use. At $20/quart, it doesn’t completely break the bank either.

Benjamin Moore Natura Zero VOC White Primer – $19.99/quart at World Paint Supply.

Zinsser Quart White Bulls Eye Zero VOC Primer – This eco-friendly water-based formula is LEED compliant, contains no VOC’s, is low odor, and sticks to all surfaces (their claim). It can be used for both interior and exterior projects. For $14.21/quart it is a better deal than Benjamin Moore’s Natura series.
