Mother Nature is threatened as VOCs released into the air is also a form of greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming, polluting the Earth’s soil and water. Together with other greenhouse gases, this deadly combination may cripple the Earth in the long run.
Surely there’s light at the end of this foggy and corrupted tunnel…indeed, from Dulux’s environmentally formulated paints.

Family members can go around on their usual routine, uninterrupted by the unpleasantness caused by the stinging air when painting is in progress.
Mother Nature too can breathe a sigh of relief as emission levels of VOC start to dip around the globe. And as the world turns, she would be finally getting her much needed helping hand to battle against the changing climate and warming atmosphere. Think about it, for us humans must wake up and realize how fragile our Earth really is, and that preservation measures must be prioritized and put in place to secure a
VOC is a threat to humans and the environment. This ever present danger is found in solvents used in paints to control drying time and paint properties. Harmful chemicals are released into the air when paint dries and could continue to diffuse for years, deteriorating indoor air quality and weaken even the healthiest of people. The highest levels of VOC are found when painting work is in progress, and more so in poorly ventilated homes. Take heed, for inhaling VOC may bring about serious health issues, even cancer, for these invisible killers are in the air for the long-term. Various paint products, lacquers, cleaning supplies, adhesives, paint strippers and varnishes all contain the dreadful VOC.
Make it a point to use low VOC products when contemplating a home makeover. Isn’t it our responsibility to screen our families from harm and to safeguard our own planet? Every little deed may ultimately be the very brush that paints out a bigger picture; a healthier and sustainable tomorrow for all.
