Green Planet Paints do not use petroleum, using plant-based binders and additives instead. They minimize additives and they do not over-formulate, which helps eliminate synthetic products in our waste stream. GPP uses mineral pigments that are produced with low-energy processes, resulting in unique, lightfast colors, in a simple, easy to use color palette based on the colors of nature.

For thousands of years paints have been made from a wide variety of natural materials, such as lime, casein, linseed oil, chalk, clays, minerals and tree resins, usually made with local resources and their own local knowledge.
