Low- or no-VOC paint is an easy place to start. This type of paint releases fewer or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into your home or office air. VOCs create ground-level ozone pollution and carry potential health risks.

Benjamin Moore Natura® Zero-VOC Interior Paint is ideally suited for residential applications. Unlike conventional zero-VOC paints, Natura remains zero-VOC even after tinting, which means it remains virtually odorless regardless of color.

If you’re looking to remove some old paint or coatings from brick, wood or concrete, Smart Strip™ Paint Removal System is an environmentally friendly option. This is a 100% biodegradable, water-based paint stripper that is extremely effective for removing multiple layers of architectural and industrial coatings from virtually all interior/exterior surfaces such as wood, brick, metal, concrete, stone, plaster, fiberglass, etc. Smart Strip™ does not contain methylene chloride, any caustics, or toxic chemicals. It is odor-free and safe for the environment.

Klean-Strip® Easy Liquid Sandpaper is a water-based, biodegradable formula with low odor that permanently deglosses surfaces. It is much easier than sanding to help new finishes adhere to old finishes. Works on paint, varnish, enamel, lacquer, polyurethane and stain and is great for kitchen cabinets, wood moldings and door facings.
