Grace Glass – Co-founder, Natural Paint Co

Grace is a young entrepreneur challenging an industry dominated by only a few large corporations: paint. As an ex-nurse, she is as passionate about people’s health as she is about sustainability. By founding Natural Paint Co, she is championing both. 

Standard chemical paints rely heavily on the petroleum industry and can release toxic ingredients for up to 10 years after application. This can affect asthma, allergies and chronic fatigue. The New Zealand paint range Grace has pioneered is free of harmful chemicals and volatile organic compounds that contribute to pollution. It is made with natural ingredients and renewable resources.

These natural paints now consistently outperform top chemical paints, and Grace’s work actively challenges the big players in the industry to change.

Sustainability is at the forefront of every aspect of Natural Paint Co – from the ingredients to running a carbon neutral business, and ensuring left over paint is reused, recycled or composted.
