Metro Portland, an founding RPN member, has been producing MetroPaint, a 100 percent recycled latex paint, in Portland, Oregon, since 1992. MetroPaint has recently become certified under Green Seal's GS-43 standard for recycled-content latex paint. Metro sells the recycled latex paint in five and one gallon quantities and colors ranging from white and cream to mauve and barn red.

Recycled paint manufacturing conserves resources and diverts hazardous substances from the waste stream. To learn more about recycled-content and other environmentally preferable paints, see the Responsible Purchasing Guide for Paint or read other news about paint.
