We Want You To Live A Healthier Life
Today marks 48 years since the first official Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970 when “millions of people took to the streets to protest the negative impacts of 150 years of industrial development.” The global ecological awareness was growing, and the US Congress and President Nixon responded quickly and created the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The Romabio founders also had a concern with the toxic evolution of products and their effect on the environment. They had a vision to create clean and healthy paints that would do no harm. That’s why we love to see it when our customers feel like they can use our products that are safe for them, and for the environment.
We recently met the Lynam family on Instagram. Mr. Lynam has been working hard to transform a new house into a home for his young family. Using Romabio products meant he could paint bedrooms during his wife’s pregnancy, and continue renovation now that their baby has arrived.
“Our fireplace is limewashed. We replaced the paneling with Sheetrock, used #Romabio interior paint in Rhinestone on the walls and Classico Limewash in Avorio White on the very dark, very dated rock fireplace and mantle. We now like our fireplace. The limewash was easy to use and the best part is the zero VOC so we could paint without fear of chemicals around our newborn baby.” -M. Lynam (follow their progress on Instagram).
But being mindful of creating and using safe products is not just a two-way street between Romabio and the homeowner. It is a multi-vein highway where everyone has a role to play and responsibility to each other and our planet. From the architects we work with designing beautiful and unique green structures to the professional paint applicators and artists that help busy or overwhelmed homeowners achieve their dream home goals, creating, using, applying and purchasing our Romabio’s innovative products is a kindness you do for each other and our planet.
On this Earth Day weekend, and every day, the entire Romabio team would like to thank you for purchasing, recommending, using and designing around our specialty products, allowing us to continue our timely and important mission. We are working on more products for the future with the same mission and vision in mind.
