We all know that painting can be a messy job, from paint splatters and spills to tidying up and cleaning. Whilst sustainability might not be the first thing on your mind when decorating, it has come to many people's attention that painting can be quite a wasteful task. Not only do people waste paint, but also water, time, and money, which can be avoided if we make more of a conscious effort to follow sustainable steps.

In a joint endeavour to assist consumers in adopting more sustainable and efficient painting practices, the British Coatings Federation (BCF) and the Painting and Decorating Association (PDA) have created an enlightening new video. This must-watch video is filled with practical tips and tricks to make your painting projects not only shine but also eco-friendly. By following the video, you can reclaim up to 75% of paint that might have been wasted, reduce the time spent on cleaning, and save up to 10 litres of water!

The video is crafted meticulously with expert inputs from Bagnalls, a prominent UK painting and decorating contractor and PDA member, presenting practical advice on the optimal recovery and storage of painting tools. With a focus on sustainability, the guide demonstrates how to minimise waste through effective cleaning and storage techniques for brushes and rollers, ultimately resulting in significant savings.
