Considered the 'nutrition label' for the industry, the Declare label offers unprecedented transparency into the ingredients, sourcing, and manufacturing of labeled products.
"ECOS Paints is blazing a new path as the world's first paint company to disclose all its ingredients using our Declare protocol, “ said Jason McLennan, CEO of the International Living Future Institute and founder of the Living Building Challenge. “This is real leadership towards a safer future where we know what's in our products."
