Recycled Paint

CIRCOULEUR manufactures and sells recycled paints, avoiding the incineration of unused paint thanks to Circular Economy.

Identification

Anytime someone makes a paint job on walls, there is some leftover paint in the can. Adding them up, this represents millions of liters of unused waterborne paint which are incinerated each year, leading to high release of CO₂ in the atmosphere. At the same time, large quantities of raw materials are still getting extracted to manufacture new paints, participating in natural resource depletion. CIRCOULEUR finally solves all these issues and stops all this waste by reusing this paint waste as a material to make new and more environmentally friendly paints. CIRCOULEUR manufactures and sells these recycled acrylic paints that contain more than 70% of recycled materials. Our paints meet high quality standards, and come in a range of beautiful trending colors. They emit almost no VOCs (volatile organic compounds), which guarantees a better indoor air quality. And adding to that, CIRCOULEUR paints are not more expensive than conventional paints, making them affordable for all.
