Firstly, we must start by saying “how lucky are we” to be a Little Greene Paint and Paper stockist. A wonderful brand to work with and all manufactured here in the UK. Little Greene prides itself on many factors but the depth of colour you get (over 40% more pigment than many ordinary paints) from their extensive collection of colours and scales leaves many far behind.
At Little Greene they have always been totally committed to the ongoing protection of the well being and protection of the world environment and are continuously formulating and reviewing all aspects of their business to meet these high standards.
All Little Greene’s water-based paints carry the industry’s lowest eco rating, with VOC rating now virtually zero. No need to worry about solvent contributions to the atmosphere or any respiratory issues, or the smell; they are virtually odourless.
Oil- based paints are traditionally favoured because of their renowned longevity and superb finish. Little Greene oil- based paints and bee reformulated using vegetable oils, without compromising on their unrivalled quality.
Little Greene wallpapers are produced using paper from FSC or PEFC certified sustainable forests; so for every tree used another four are planted. The pigments used to print them are completely non-toxic and their excellent wallpaper paste is solvent free.
A big thumbs up to Little Greene as they offer the safest choices for decorating children’s rooms and furniture. Their Absolute Matt Emulsion, Intelligent Matt Emulsion and Intelligent Eggshell paints have been tested to European Standard BS EN 71-3:1995, also known as ‘Toy Paint Regulations’ – these are proven safe from toxic metals.
