May 30th, 2024

If you’re looking to find a paint and wallpaper brand with environmental values at their core, here are some top brands at Brewers who are committed to creating and distributing products in a more sustainable way.

Earthborn:

Should doing what’s right be at the expense of quality and style? Earthborn don’t think so! That’s why they’re dedicated to creating paints perfect for home decorators, interior designers and trade folk that are better for the planet, your home and your health. So, the most important choice you have to make is which of the designer paint colours you fancy. Since Earthborn was founded in 2002, they have been looking for a true eco alternative to conventional paints, long before most people had even heard of ‘eco’. What makes their paints different is the high quality and high performance; the result of carefully selecting the right environmentally friendly ingredients and using technologically advanced manufacturing processes and formulations. You'll find a full list of ingredients on their tins to help you make a more informed choice. They have been awarded the first UK licence of the EU Ecolabel for indoor paints and varnishes.

Graham & Brown:

2022 was a landmark year in Graham & Brown’s history as they became a Carbon Neutral Business. The UK arm of the business also moved to renewable electricity at the end of 2021. Renewable electricity made a 29% reduction in their carbon emissions in Scope 2 and their digital factory uses 100% renewable energy. All their paint tins are completely recyclable once they have been cleaned and are made from steel, the most recycled material in the world plus 100% of their cardboard packaging is made from recycled or managed sources. Each carton is made from a minimum 70% recycled card and 30% sustainably sourced pulp – so it is 100% Good.
