Why Regular Paint Can Be a Problem:

Pollutes the Air: Normal paint releases harmful chemicals, making our air polluted and sometimes causing headaches or worse.

Energy Hungry: Making paint uses a lot of power and not the green kind. This means more pollution and a bigger carbon footprint.

Waste Not, Want Not: But we do want less waste, and traditional paints give us more. From cans thrown away to leftover paint, it all adds to our planet's trash problem.

At Dulux, we are on a mission to address these issues. We are making paints that are not only safe for us but also don't hurt the earth. This is a big step towards keeping our homes and the world cleaner and greener.

Practical Guide to Choosing and Using Eco-Friendly Paint

Choosing and using eco-friendly paint, like Dulux's better paint options, can be a breeze with the right guidance. Here's a practical guide to help you make environmentally friendly choices for your next painting project:


Choosing Eco-Friendly Paint

Look for Certifications: Eco-friendly paints often come with certifications that guarantee they meet certain environmental and health standards. Look for labels like "low VOC," "non-toxic," or certifications from reputable organizations.

Check the Ingredients: Transparency about what's in the paint is crucial. Opt for paints that use natural or renewable ingredients and avoid those with harmful chemicals or heavy metals.

Understand Product Features: Eco-friendly paints come with unique features. For instance, Dulux offers options with anti-bacterial properties and air-purifying technologies that contribute to a healthier indoor environment.


Applying Eco-Friendly Paint

Prep Your Space: Ensure your room is well-ventilated. This not only helps the paint dry faster but also maintains good air quality during and after painting.

Use the Right Tools: Opt for high-quality brushes and rollers that work well with eco-friendly paint to avoid wastage and achieve a smooth finish.

Apply Efficiently: Follow the manufacturer's guidelines on application to maximize coverage and minimize waste. Dulux paints often require fewer coats, saving time and resources.


Maintaining Your Painted Surfaces

Cleaning: Dulux's eco-friendly options are designed to be easy to clean without the need for harsh chemicals. Regular dusting and the occasional wipe-down with a damp cloth can keep your walls looking fresh.

Touch-ups: If you need to do touch-ups, make sure to use the same eco-friendly paint. Store any leftover paint properly for future use to reduce waste.


Maximizing Eco-Friendly Benefits

Disposal: Dispose of any paint waste responsibly. Check with your local waste management services for eco-friendly disposal options.

Recycling: Participate in paint recycling programs if available in your area. This helps reduce landfill waste and supports circular economy efforts.
