The Royal Treatment
Maybe you’re not a professional DIY-er, but when you do go to the corner hardware store for projects you want to tackle yourself, you want to know where to find the most sustainable options. Ace Hardware’s Helpful Earth Choices program spotlights eco-friendly products and services in the store that incorporate everything from recycled materials, to energy savings, to non-toxic and healthy alternatives. The latest addition we’ve tested? The Ace Royal Finest line of low-VOC paint.
Available in a vast array of colors and finishes (flat, eggshell, satin, semi-gloss), the GREEN WISE® certified paint goes on smooth with very minimal odor and incredible depth of color. For you techs-and-specs types, note that Royal Finest paint meets the low-VOC requirements of the LEED® certification system. And for those of you that just want to make sure you’re getting an affordable, high performance paint without sacrificing your commitment to Mother E – Ace has got you covered with a regal product, at a commoner’s price ($29.99/ gallon).
