About the Company
In 2009, professional artist, mom, and environmentalist Leah Fanning had a large gallery exhibition to participate in and needed to paint full-time to prepare for it. She also found out she was pregnant with her first child around the same time. So, to protect her baby’s health, she ditched every toxic art supply in her studio, including paints, thinners, and primers.
But what was the alternative to conventional paints? Leah drew inspiration from the great Renaissance masters and took to nature to find her supplies. “I actually went into the woods and harvested all the pigments myself,” she recalls, smiling. “I would never leave home without a trowel and a bag. If I saw beautiful colors in the strata on the roadside, I would jump out of my car and gather the pigments.” She discovered that using natural pigments and oils creates paintings that are more radiant and archival, and without fillers, natural paints have a brilliant luminosity that can’t be found anywhere else.
We’re proud to be a growing green business, expanding from offering our children’s paint kit and oil paint kit to a whole range of natural fine arts supplies, face paints, and children’s art supplies. True to our eco-friendly roots, Natural Earth Paint continues to be committed to eco-friendly products and practices, reflected by our prestigious Gold certification from Green America, the highest rank for a green business. We use locally-made, 100% post-consumer recycled packaging, biodegradable plastic bags, recyclable glass and aluminum bottles, and compostable pouches for our packaging and operate out of a 100% solar-powered facility that serves as a community bubble wrap drop-off site. And, we give back to organizations and causes that protect Mother Earth.
