Remember our discovery of recycled paints? It was totally new to us, and as always it makes us happy to report on good alternatives.
Well, just when we’d published the post, we were contacted by a company called Earth Friendly Supplies. They actually work together with the company we reported on, Newlife paint, but they have a broader scope: “The long term vision is to also supply other eco friendly decorating sundries, behind the scenes we also have a decorating company with 20 years experience one of only a few eco decorating companies”, Stephen Hull at Earth Friendly Supplies tells us.
He points out that it is likely that most organisations have never considered using recycled emulsion paint, which is logical seeing it’s never been available on a commercial basis – until now!

So why should you use recycled paint? What are the real benefits?
“Using Eco Friendly Paint can improve your GREEN credentials. This is because you will be helping to recycle some of the estimated 50 million litres of waste that is created every year. It will help reduce your carbon footprint as the recycling process not only uses less power to produce but 99% of the containers that the waste arrives in are also recycled.”
