Thirty years ago, all paints were smelly paints, so Ian West & John Ashworth spent 6 years developing the world's first odourless, organic, eco VOC-free paints & varnishes for healthy homes, nurseries, for babies health & the pregnant. Read about our story below
How to help combat climate change and global warming on an individual level, a personal level, by your lifestyle choices and in your home. To help stop climate change and global warming, some real-world highly useful options that are already easily do-able include solvent-free paints eg Lakeland Paints - which are free of all solvents, formaldehyde, VOC-free, Non-toxic and actually edible ! Surely, paint solvent – as involved in global warming and combating climate change - is a tiny concern you might think ? Not at all - paint emitted 24 MILLION tons of greenhouse gas solvents into the atmosphere last year and every year - (UN/WHO EH187 et al)

Back in 1985, all paints were smelly paints, so myself - Ian West - & John Ashworth spent 6 years developing the world's first odourless, organic, eco VOC-free paints & varnishes for healthy homes, nurseries, babies & the pregnant. Thirty years on we stay true to our promise, making the same super quality eco friendly paint at our workshop in the Lune Valley for everyone - including those with asthma, allergies, CFS and MCS. Our core customers are people looking for organic paint for a new baby, paints for children, paints for pregnant ladies & paints for asthma sufferers or those with paint allergies. If you need odourless eco paint with no VOCs, no solvents or colour matching for your baby's nursery, then Lakeland Paints are for you.
How Safe is Safe?
We have all the certificates to show No VOCs, No Solvents, No Heavy Metals – but how do we really know that our paints are Safe around your children? Are we willing to put our money where our mouth is ? Well, as the inventor, I am. So watch our YouTube video as I eat a tablespoon of our Matt Wallpaint. And I have done this demonstration half a dozen times or more - for Lancashire + Cumbria Trading Standards, the ASA, HSE and others. So why not ask the others to do the same ? You never know – they just might !
