Staunch Greco Industries has made it a top priority to research the eco-friendly paint market, to form a select collection of eco-friendly paints to recommend to you. The idea is to not overwhelm you with choice, but to have a a handful of staunch products that you can trust in and rely on.

We have formed good working relationships with manufacturers and have taken the time to understand their eco-friendly paint products. Our chief aim here is to make recommendations that will be of benefit to the three key sectors:

The health and well-being of our clients and their families/colleagues.

The health and well-being of the wider community

The health and well-being of our environments and eco-systems
