Paint gives us color which gives us beauty, joy, freedom and life’s distinction. It is very evident that a little layer of paint on the walls can truly change the feeling and ambiance of a place that’s called home, whether it is a workplace, school and library, orphanage, hospital, church, refugee camp or prison. The right paint color can uplift the spirit and create happiness for years to come, but paint can also be a source of both air and water pollution- especially if it ends up in landfills. The US EPA has found that recycling paint reduces water pollution by 35% and air pollution by 74%. Another major factor behind the Global Paint movement is that paint can help save lives. Putting high-quality of paint on the walls can protect exterior and interior surfaces from bacterial objects, diseases, viruses, bad germs, temperature changes and much more. Last but not least, I love paint. When I was a child, I used to love to draw and enjoy seeing how things like houses, doors, and other objects look outside. I always had a late night date with my pencil and sheets of paper. I drew houses, cars, and buildings that did not even exist in my neighborhood. I used bright colors such as red, yellow, pink, and blue on the walls, and it was beautiful. My house was not even painted the same way; it was just my imagination and curiosity. Today I feel very grateful for being able to reduce waste, and founded the first charitable organization to help provide paint to vulnerable populations all around the world while protecting the environment. It is like a dream come true.
