Zero VOC | Premium Quality | Any Colour | Affordable | Free Delivery
Ecolour is an Australian based manufacturer of premium quality water based paint with zero outgassing of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Suitable for interior, exterior and timber finishes, Ecolour paint is competitively priced when compared with the major brands.
Through her investment company Delmata, Zoe was a founding investor in Ecolour in 2009. The business case was clear, provide a better product to the market (at the same price as the major brands) that makes indoor spaces far more habitable, and helps protect the health of painters. Beyond the health impacts, Ecolour customers also enjoy considerable cost savings and higher profits by being able to paint around occupied spaces during business hours (without needs to pay afterhours rates), and to reoccupy rooms immediately after painting (including in hotels and hospitals), completely by-passing the (often weeks long) process of airing out the room and/or flushing out the HVAC system.
