Eco Friendly Painters

Our Top 3 Tips for Eco Friendly Painting

Environmental responsibility is something Scope Painting takes very seriously, and we go to great lengths to provide environmentally safe services to all of its customers and our greater community.

The Resene Eco Decorator programme was designed to recognise environmentally responsible and quality focused painting contractors, and Scope Painting is proudly ranked as a leading environmentally sustainable business as reflected by our place as one of the highest scoring certified Resene Eco Decorators.

Resene offer’s an environmental choice for almost all painting situations, covering a comprehensive range of waterborne primers, undercoats, topcoats, pigmented and clear coatings, mastics and specialised waterproofing and textured coatings.



when it comes to eco-friendly paints, many of them require extra knowledge and skills to apply so it’s important to choose (or seek advice from) a painter who has experience with high quality, environmentally friendly products to achieve a successful application that lasts the distance.

Good prep

minimizing product use is an important environmentally friendly practice so making sure surfaces are prepared and repaired properly, so that you get the most out of the paint that you choose is an important eco-friendly practice

Re-use and recycle

we recycle as much of our waste as possible. Empty trade tins of paint can be recycled at your local Resene as part of their PaintWise program, and unused paint is a welcome donation by local charity organisations.

As well as environmentally friendly paint, manufacturers are now also producing eco alternatives to paint strippers, wallpapers, adhesives and even eco-friendly paint brushes and tools which are constructed from bamboo, all of which are beneficial to the planet, the health of our decorators and the health of our customers.
