One of the few green things that we've been able to do with this remodel — we're hoping it's a lot easier to build green rather than remodel green — is use low VOC paint. The low VOC paint — VOC is short for volatile organic compounds — puts fewer pollutants into the air, specifically into the air that we will be breathing once we move into this place.
You know that fresh paint smell? Low-VOC paint doesn't have one. Really, none at all.
