Metro Paint

How cool is this? The regional government of Portland, Ore. is responsible for the area’s waste disposal. As part of their goal to recycle as much as possible, these west-coast brainiacs built a top-notch paint-recycling facility. Collected paint is inspected, sorted and blended into high-quality new paint appropriate for interior and exterior use. Available in 5-gallon containers in a limited range of colors. And get this: It’s wicked cheap--only $30/5 gallon pail. Unfortunately, they only sell locally. But if you live in Oregon, get on it! $30 ::Environmental Building Supplies
