ECO-FRIENDLY PAINT BRANDS

These paints are among the most highly recommended for low-VOC content, environmental safety, and quality/durability.  Keep in mind that the low-VOC content movement began primarily with interior paints (in an effort to improve indoor air quality).  These have enjoyed a much wider acceptance than the exterior types, though more manufacturers have been stepping up and adding exterior lines that hold up better under a variety of weather conditions.
