Paint Still Contains Lead??



Another reason to make sure you buy eco-friendly paint. I thought they banned lead in paint back in the 70's. Well, they did, but apparently it didn't account for imported paint. The university of Cincinnati has just published a study finding over 73% of consumer paint brands exceed the US limits for lead, pointing to a real safety issue, especially for children. Just something to watch out for next time you buy paint.

Gawlee! I had no idea! That is incredibly frustrating and upsetting. I have a new baby and we have just recently painted her room and it makes me wonder if that paint is dangerous. Ughhh.
