After much online research and many, many phone calls to green building supply stores, and to the green paint companies themselves, we finally chose ECOS Paints to use for our interior paint.
We chose ECOS not necessarily solely because I thought it would be better than the other green paint companies available. Our decision was also due in part to the fact that I found someone who has used ECOS products extensively and offered a strong recommendation to me based on her experience. Carol owns an interior design business called The Natural Home that focuses on green furnishings and green home design. She has an incredible depth of knowledge.
But Carol's testament wasn't all that swayed me. I really like that ECOS is a European-based company, with some of the strictest safety standards in effect there. Their paint was also chosen to paint the Le Louvre, Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament, the British Museum, and other buildings of prominence. Did that have something to do with my choice? Maybe.
If it's suitable for Le Louvre...
