It seems that everything we use these days causes us to worry. The air, plastic bottles, painted toys, etc. So when it comes to painting your walls, you do not want heavy paint fumes.
Joining the green movement is Benjamin Moore with their eco-friendly paint, Eco Spec. The paint is low odor and low VOC (Volatile Organic Compouds). If you are pregnant or have kids, it is recommended that you let someone else paint your house so you can get out of the house and avoid the fumes altogether. If you're going to be stubborn and do it yourself, like I did, then definitely use a safer product like Eco Spec and know that you're helping to preserve our ozone while beautifying your home!
