Global Paint for Charity Inc. (AKA “GPC” or “Global Paint”) is the first sustainable paint waste management and the largest exporter and provider of Latex paint to millions of people in 45 countries in Africa, the Caribbean, Asia, Latin America, as well as nationally underserved communities right here in the United States. Global Paint for Charity helps ecosystems by recycling latex paint products from businesses, residents, and manufacturers that would otherwise end up in the waste stream. The organization brings hope, joy, color, and beauty to communities ravaged by disaster, extreme poverty, or otherwise lack resources. We are leading the way. Global Paint for Charity’s work recycles those leftover paints to beautify the world and transforms people’s lives. We believe a coating of paint on the walls can have a significant, positive, and powerful impact on people’s lives for many years to come.
Under the Environmental Protection Act, it is now illegal to dispose of paints in landfills. In contrast, more than 2.5 billion families have never had access to a painted house in developing countries. In addition, it is estimated that 80 % of the world´s schools in third-world countries face a dreary reality or unpainted walls due to a lack of paint access.
Only 7% of leftover paint in the U.S. is currently recycled. Over 150 million gallons of paint end up as waste every year, and it only takes one gallon to pollute up to 250,000 gallons of drinking water. Global Paint was created to change that. We are an organization working toward sustainable solutions to paint waste.
