The Right Thing. Consider:

There are more than 10,000 chemicals that can be used in conventional paints; many of which are newly created chemical components with little research conducted regarding their long-term effects on both humans and the environment.

BioShield paints are non-toxic, low VOC and 98% naturally derived from plant sources and minerals. And they are not just about paints. BioShield offers a growing line of finishes and colorings from everything to walls to floors to furniture. They offer solvent-free wall paint, clay paints, color washes, cork flooring and wood stains.

Prices are a little higher, but they should be; this is actually good stuff, and colors run to around 50 variations. All can be ordered from their catalog or website. MGR
