You know that new paint smell you get when you roll out the latex on your living room walls? It’s not good for you.
In fact, these volatile organic compounds (VOCs) might irritate your sinuses and lungs or even be carcinogenic. It’s a mixed bag, depending on what colors and formula of paint you’re using. Besides that, many VOCs contribute to greenhouse gasses.
This is where Mythic Paint enters the picture. Mythic
Paint is the green alternative and has more than 1,200 colors available
to beautify your walls. While it’s more expensive than what you might
commonly buy at a hardware store (around $40-$60 a gallon), it does
pretty much the same thing as regular paint, offering the same
coverage, drying time and durability without any of the off-gassing
that you’ve come to expect.
