Babies spends a lot of their time sleeping and the baby Nursery is an important start for a healthy environment for your newborn. The paint on the walls can release fumes that contributes to the pollution of the lower atmosphere and ozone layer. Not only this, the volatile organic compounds (VOCS) found in many common paints are solids and liquids that convert easily to gas or vapor at room temperature. VOCS have been linked to a variety of health problems - watery eyes, headaches, asthma, respiratory diseases and cancer.
It's so wonder that now there is a Brand that has released it's one line of focussed Nursery Colour Paints that are 100% non toxic.

Why you should avoid Volatile Organic Compounds?
Paints typically make up 80 per cent of a building’s surface, but the tins of pigment, resin, solvent and additives that help form the bare bones of design can have adverse environmental and health effects. The most harmful chemical found in paints are Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): carbon-containing solvents that vaporise into the air readily as paint dries. These VOCs are emitted or ‘off-gassed’ into living spaces and the atmosphere up to five years after the paint has been applied, causing problems for indoor air quality and leading to health issues such as asthma, headaches, nausea and even cancer. The rise in energy efficient, well-sealed buildings has compounded these problems, as VOCs are accumulated within buildings with no way of escape.
