Paint the Nursery Green


If you're like most new parents, the type of paint you use in your child's nursery is far down on the list of your environmental concerns. But it is a factor in raising your baby in an eco-friendly environment. Standard paint is latex-based, and that means it contains chemicals that can break down and vent into the atmosphere. Look for a type of paint that specifically mentions it is a "low-VOC" product (VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compounds), and consider using it for every painting project in your home.
