Show your Mother Earth and yourself some love, by being conscious of the paint and other common items you use.
Did you know? The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies paint as one of its top five most hazardous substances.
Effects On The Environment:
When VOC’s react with oxygen, they can form ‘bad’ ozone in the presence of sunlight. This is a contributory factor to the greenhouse effect and a cause of global warming. One study by C.E.P.E. attributes paints and varnishes to causing as much as five percent of all VOC emissions. – M Howard, J Miemczyk
A Long List of Health Concerns:
Solvent based automotive paints contain not just problematic VOCs, but also other air pollutants that decrease air quality and may pose a risk to painters and workers. Skin and eye irritation are only the beginning of the health problems that painters and workers could face when using solvent based automotive paints.Other health risks include central nervous system effects. The organic compounds found in VOCs can also damage internal organs, such as the liver and kidneys. Alarmingly, organic compounds found in solvent based automotive paint have been linked to cancer and reproductive health issues. By contrast, waterborne paints have lower levels of organic solvents are thus much less toxic. http://ellisandsalazar.com/auto-painting/why-is-waterborne-car-paint-better-for-the-environment/
Eco-friendly paint for cars is waterborne, which means water is the main ingredient in the paint instead of the dangerous solvents. These paints emit up to 80 per cent less of the VOCs than traditional car paint. They have 70 per cent water, 20 per cent pigment, pearlescent and metallic particles and 10 per cent organic solvents. http://gearheads.org/eco-friendly-paint-for-cars-best-options/
Auto body Xperts uses waterborne paint, to insure we aren’t harming the environment or the health of our staff and neighbors. http://autobodyxperts.com/auto-body-paint-shop/
