Paint sold at Green Living contains zero VOCs, volatile organic compounds, which are reactive organic chemical compounds that can damage soil and groundwater and can cause health problems in humans, animals, and plants.

Refrigeration: Replacing an old refrigerator (18 years or older) with a new unit reduces electric usage by at least 35 percent.
