If you're taking on a DIY painting project in your home, you may think buying a "low VOC" (which is short for volatile organic compounds) paint is the healthiest and greenest option out there. But the reality is, almost all household paints are technically "low" VOC. What you want to look for are paints marked "zero" VOC, which means they have no odor in their untinted form. Then use a brand where the tints are zero to low VOCs to make sure your color choice is as green as it can be.
