MetroPaint Recycled Latex in Oregon

Advertising in the weekly paper Willamette Week, is an interesting company that appears to be run by the Oregon Metro government office. The ad reads: “What’s Green Seal certified and comes in colors from barn red to summer-sky blue? MetroPaint 100% recycled latex paint. Better for the environment. Great for your home. Just $11 or less per gallon.” There is a simple, boxed image of a gallon of paint, the ad is unfortunately and oddly (budgetary constraints?) in black and white, and the MetroPaint graphic is imprinted on the side, with the text in heavy bold: “$11 or less per gallon!

Ads like this always catch my eye. Brands that market themselves as eco-friendly and cost effective seem to have a leg up in the marketplace, and I thought I’d present the info here in this post. The ad goes on to say, “Available at MetroPaint, Miller Paint stores, select Fred Meyer stores and participating independent dealers.”After a bit of investigating, I learned that MetroPaint is “a recycled interior/exterior latex paint that is filtered to industry standards and tested for performance and environmental safety,” according to the website. It comes in 5-gallon pails and 1-gallon cans, and can be used anywhere that traditional latex paint can.
