These products are environmentally friendly and 100% biodegradable. This is an attribute where basically all latex “environmentally friendly” products with low volatile organic compounds fall short.
Unearthed also does not require the petrochemical substances that many other “environmentally friendly” products require to manufacture.
These products instead draw their color, longevity, and other properties from naturally occurring pigments and chemical properties much more similar to the paints used historically before the push for quantity and low cost diminished the importance of quality.
Given that they are already not expending petrochemicals, but also require less chemical processes to reach the final product, these finishes require far less overall energy to produce.
Another benefit other than your health, is the health of your building. Many of the binders used in the latex paints of today severely limit the breathability of the structure, allowing moisture buildup to become potentially problematic.
Unearthed’s products do not encounter this issue as the binders they use are breathable. If there is any painting in your future do yourself, and the planet, a favor and check out this product.
