What Has 20 Colours But Is Green All Over? — NBT Trade Paint
The U.K. company Natural Building Technologies has recently launched an environmentally friendly paint range of 20 colours. They have been ‘specifically designed to tackle the most difficult environmental and health issues that arise from paints - such as toxicity, VOCs, embodied energy, carbon emissions, resource use and pollution.’ NBT also tell us that their new range contains ‘no solvents, hormone mimics or chlorinated preservatives. Additionally they considerably reduce resins and TiO2 and have 30% less embodied energy than NBTs existing paints.’ NBT was founded by Neil May in late 1999 with the mission of bringing ecological building materials and systems into the mainstream construction industry in the UK. To learn more about the impact of paint on the environment you can read Neil May’s informative article Paint & Ecology. You can also check out Justin’s previous post on Low VOC paints stateside.
