How low is your V.O.C.?

If you're one Portland company (see page 2 of this story), it's low, very low.

Green is for pansies. And for plants and trees....CO2...It happens, god willing.

and if you think VOC is going to turn home painting on its head....check out the new requirements for boats!
Of course only the small private vessels are really required to comply with new environmental laws. The largest of the large commercial and all of the Navy ships are currently exempt from the most draconian of the regulations, thus pouring millions of gallons of all sorts of really bad stuff in the water ways of the world.
It is like the rules for black water discharge. The cruise ships can dump thousands of gallons of sh*t in the Staraghts of San Juan de Fuca or even Glacier Bay, Alaska and all they get is a fine.

Oh, I thought you were talking about the Dutch East India company (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie). Comes from reading too many historical novels...
