After decades dealing with fluctuating prices from our suppliers, I started looking for ways to source something else for our line of paints and sealers. We explored sustainability, but got caught up in expensive certifications and 3rd party labels. We needed a new approach. This book showed us a new approach to greening our products that we never thought of before that will save us $$$!
