Aura Paints via Green Home

What: Recently Benjamin Moore introduced AURA, a low odor low VOC product that is both environmentally-friendly and beautiful!

What they say: Regular paints contain VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that cause indoor air pollution. Aura paints have a low-VOC content, resulting in fewer noxious fumes than conventional formulas.

What we say: If you are in the middle of a remodel or maybe purchasing a new home (take advantage of the buyer’s market!) consider using a more environmentally-friendly paint. The environment, as well as your lungs, will thank you!
