Good Questions: Affordable Low VOC paint?

Pin it button big

Tyke sent an email asking:

Hi AT, I'm planning on painting the outside of our house along with 2 interior rooms, and we've been feeling guilty about possibly not using eco-friendly paint, but it seems like anything low-VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) is extremely expensive (almost 4 times the price!). do you know of ANY paints--interior or extreior--that aren't so extravagantly priced?

Hey tyke- Our friends at Treehugger compiled a list awhile ago. Here is a link to a list of retailers.

Also, I spoke with a representative at Behr Paints Corporate Office, and they said "We manufacture Low VOC paints per EPA regulations across the nation...sold at same retail price as our regular paints, exclusively at The Home Depot." Unfortunately they do not make a No VOC paint at this time.

If anyone else has used an affordable Low VOC/No VOC paint or has any other sources/recommendations- please share in the comments!
