War on VOCs is declared, Go green!

Starting beginning of 2018, new European directives will become more restrictive for plastic-based products emitting particles in the air.

 

VOC - Volatile  Organic Compounds - are substances that can easily end up in the atmosphere. Their volatility is a threat, leading to direct and indirect impacts on Nature, Animals, and Men’s health.

 

Since 2013, labeling for construction items, wall or floor coatings, paints and varnishes sold in France is mandatory regarding the VOC emitting. The label must show the VOC emission rate by groups going from A+ (very low VOC emissions) to C (very high VOC emissions).

 

                      

 

As far as the protection of the environment is concerned, E.U. reinforces several directives and constraints on VOC products.

 

From 2018 an on, those measures will be extended and reinforced at a European level. Indeed, all manufacturers will then have to clearly indicate the emission rate of VOC products in the ambient air. The strong commitment of the E.U will certainly generate new measures in the coming years and might lead to more drastic decisions.

 

Decoration and wall covering products are also concerned. To overcome all of those rules, constraints and standards, it is about time to switch to green with PVC free products!


Let’s choose :

> A varnished parquet floor rather than a polished one.

> A GUT certified carpet

> Guyenne’s “Feel It 180g” wallpapers with cellulosic fibers instead of PVC!
