Paint the Town Green is delighted that the Duchess of Sussex is reported to have chosen an “organic, natural paint” for the royal nursery. Knowing how ethical she is on matters such as animal cruelty, it comes as no surprise that the royal couple have opted for an animal-friendly, free from toxins paint. Paint the Town Green founder Phil Robinson is particularly pleased as he has been actively promoting the benefits of our non-toxic paint ever since he started the company in 2007. We are interested in the debate that this news has thrown up around eco-paint and simply had to have our...

Living Coral, pantone colour of the year, Ultraviolet -

It’s that time of year. No, not mince pies and Rudolph but Pantone’s big announcement: Colour of the Year. There is undoubtedly a substantial amount of research, justification and rationale that goes into this. It can take us folk here at Paint the Town Green HQ a little while though to endorse their final choice. We are passionate about colour. We may be a fairly small decorating company but we like to think big. It’s why we have our own range of eco-paint, a Nicky Haslam collection, a showroom and offer an in-house colour consultancy. Colour is at the heart...

Commercial redecoration, eco paint, Fire, Grey Seal, The Good Wine Shop -

                   A few months ago, we wrote a blog about The Good Wine Shop in Kew who chose our eco paint colour Grey Seal for Night and Day ambience. With the help of Nikki Rees Interior Design, The Good Wine Shop gave their Kew store interior a make over in readiness for a new hybrid wine shop and bar venture. The walls, ceilings and woodwork were all painted in Grey Seal to make the space look larger and softer, choosing a wipeable emulsion finish, ideal for a busy interior. The Chiswick branch chose...

At Paint the Town Green, we strive to carry through eco-mindfulness across everything we do. We are an environmentally-friendly decorating company, we sell eco-paint, we recycle where possible, we minimise our packaging and we try to operate as much as we can in a paperless way.   We were shocked therefore to learn from eco-company Green Printing Solutions, who re-manufacture quality, affordable cartridges, that only 15% of the 65 million cartridges sold in the UK each year is diverted from landfill!  Sadly, ink (unlike our lovely paint) contains high levels of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and heavy metals which can lead to soil and water pollution.
