We are dedicated to
help you switch to

Water-based paints

 on quality

Although we supply everything you need for decorating, from brushes to masking tape, supplying high quality decorative paint remains at the very core of what we do. As an industry, one way we can make a big change is moving to water-based paints as solvent-based paints generally have more of a carbon footprint and have a negative impact on air quality. Our guiding principle is to work with manufacturers to provide water-based alternatives that perform as well or better than solvent-based paints – helping make the switch as easy as possible.

We will support
you to


the overall number of
 empty cans
 we recycle

 by end of 2025

95% of empty paint cans currently end up in landfill or are being burnt for energy recovery after use. We can change that by improving our free of charge empty can recycling service to make it easier for you to divert your empty cans away from going to waste and boost our industry’s recycling rate.

*From baseline 2022 data, tripled by the end of 2025.
