Gorgeous colors from Mythic non-toxic paint

Mythic paint makes a non-toxic, low odor paint option for the home that is just as durable and easy to use as traditional paints, but without the odorous and potentially dangerous volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are found in most varieties. These toxins have been linked to various cancers and continue to pervade the home environment for years after the initial application.

Mythic non-toxic paint products are healthier for the earth and for everyone living in the home, including pets. 16-ounce sample sizes are available, and full-sized products offered include the following:

> Tintable accent primer

> Drywall primer

> Ceiling paint

> Multi-purpose primer

> Flat/Matte paint

> Eggshell/Satin paint

> Semi-Gloss paint

> High-gloss paint

> Exterior low-lustre paint

> Exterior Flat paint

> Exterior semi-gloss paint

> Color foundation

A variety of other accessories, color systems and professional-grade products that are designed for rapid commercial application are also available.

Mythic non-toxic paint also meets requirements for LEED certified buildings and has been featured on some of the top residential building projects spearheaded by David Gottfried, who is the founder of the US Green Building Council and World Green Building Council.

In order to receive the coveted LEED Platinum certification, a home must meet at least 90 of the 136 requirements that are currently listed in the program's extensive rating system.

According to research by the Paint Quality Institute, VOCs from traditional paints are currently responsible for up to 10 percent of the ozone depleting substances that are released in the US.

These harmful substances have been linked to a number of health issues, including dizziness, liver and kidney damage, cancer, and irritation of the eyes, nose and throat. Furthermore, studies conducted by the EPA have found that VOCs in the home are more concentrated that outside due to the use of traditional paints.
