If you're just getting into green paints then you know how complicated it can seem. We've been there. Greenseal this, certified that. Low or no VOC (volatile organic compounds), etc. We've been using no VOC paints for years, and we thought we'd share our favorites with you. Take a look, after the jump!

We're huge fans of YOLO. They're based out of Portland and are owned and operated by women. We use their paints a lot. Like all the paints we're going to share with you, YOLO is VOC free. They divide their palettes into categories like air, water, and stone. Our favorite is the leaf palette, and we used the LEAF.07 color for our bed and rocking chair.
$39.95 per gallon.
AFM Safecoat has really great palettes. We also use them for all of our bases and white trim paint. They have a new no VOC line called Ayurveda Essence (we haven't used it yet) that has fantastic colors (108 of them!). AFM Safecoat's paints come in flat, eggshell, and semi-gloss.
$38.90 per gallon.
Mythic Paint's have a huge amount of colors available to you, and they're all fantastic. We've used them plenty of times and we gotta say, they just might be our favorite. The company also claims that their paints are free of carcinogenic chemicals.
$39.50 per gallon.
And there you have it! Our three favorite green paints, all VOC free!
