Our commitment to a responsible future
We at Cover Story intend to rethink what has always been done as routine: create new protocols of transparency in the paint manufacturing processes. More particularly, our intent is to preserve nature and re-evaluate old-fashioned industry practices. We are working to do our part by bringing transparency and offering high quality, low-emission products with a low-impact manufacturing process.
Well thought out manufacturing
We produce all of our paint in Southern Finland. This means less transport is required, and therefore less carbon emissions are generated. In addition we have more surveillance and control of the production process.
Zero manufacturing waste
Designed to last
We use as little packaging material as possible. Our cardboard delivery packaging can withstand recycling five to seven times. Our packing tape is completely plastic-free.
It matters what surrounds you
For us, plastic-free is a fundamental choice. Plastic is polluting our natural environment, having a significant impact not just on our oceans and nature, but also on human health.
Plastic is made of fossil fuels such as oil and gas, which contributes to the production of carbon dioxide. By reducing our plastic usage, we are minimizing the demand for its production. Less plastic equals less carbon emissions.
This is why our paint is plastic-free.
In principle, water-based paint is a safer choice than solvents in terms of the environment, health and painting comfort. Today, virtually all interior paints are waterborne. Yet, while water-based is a good thing, it doesn’t necessarily make the paint environmentally friendly or safe. Many water-based paints can contain harmful VOC emissions as well as plastic.
Because we want to make better paints, all Cover Story paints are plastic-free, emission-free and VOC-free.
That's why we use renewable natural oils as our binder base – plastic-free and perfect for interior surfaces.
