today, i couldn’t be more excited to share with you about unearthed paints and offer you this amazing giveaway for a $50 gift certificate! unearthed paints is a fresh new natural paint company who offers an exclusive selection of eco-friendly paints. each one is crafted with minimally processed natural ingredients such as clay, chalk, lime and italian marble. the paints are vegan, biodegradable, and 100% VOC-free!
each of their paints are tinted with earth and mineral pigments; ochers, sienna, umbers, ultramarines and spinels. these pigments give the paint a depth and radiance that cannot be achieved by the chemical colorants used in conventional paints. pigments are shipped in a powder form, eliminating any chemical preservatives and extending the life period of the paint (you just mix them up in your kitchen mixer!).
isn’t this room just to die for? i can’t wait to get started on a few projects i have planned for baby roost ‘s nursery using the vega paint in white. it’s so beautiful!
why use natural paints? for thousands of years, people have been bringing rich color to their homes using natural paint recipes. these tried and true techniques were largely forgotten with the success of the petrochemical paint industry during the post-world war II building boom. today, when you purchase a gallon of paint for your home -even low-VOC or zero-VOC paint- it is almost a given that you will be using a product that contains hundreds of chemicals and has been highly processed. many of the ingredients in conventional paints are derived from crude oil, which is a very energy-intensive process that results in significant waste products that can potentially lead to environmental contamination.
all unearthed natural paints are:
made with minimally processed, natural ingredients
vegan- contain no animal products are are never tested on animals
shipped via carbon-offset transport
manufactured in a carbon-neutral facility
accompanied by this rainforest pledge
accompanied by a full ingredient disclosure
