little green paints

Little Greene is an independent, British paint manufacturer, committed to the socially and environmentally responsible production of high quality paints and wallpapers.

Little Greene has always been totally committed to the ongoing well-being and protection of the world environment and in 2004 they were one of the first UK paint manufacturers to achieve the European environmental standard BS EN ISO 14001.

From big business decisions to the smallest everyday tasks, they continue to act positively and responsibly to minimize the ecological impact, without compromising our high quality standards.

Water based paints
All their waterbased paints carry the industry's lowest eco-rating, with VOC content now virtually zero. This means you don't need to worry about solvent contributions to the atmosphere or any respiratory issues, or the smell; they are virtually odourless.

Oil Based Paints
Oil based paints are traditionally favoured because of their renowned longevity and superb finish. Little Greene oil based paints have been reformulated using sustainable vegetable oils, without compromising on their unrivalled quality.

The paper used in their wallpapers comes from FSC or PEFC certificated sustainable forests; so for every tree used another four are planted. The pigments used to print them are completely non-toxic and our excellent wallpaper paste contains no solvent.

Safe For Children
They offer a safe choice for decorating children's rooms and furniture. The Absolute Mat Emulsion, Intelligent Matt Emulsion and Intelligent Eggshell paints have been tested to European Standard BS EN 71-3:1995, also known as 'Toy Paint Regulations' – these are proven safe from toxic metals.


We offer the full range of Little Greene paints for interior, exterior woodwork and floors.

We also offer free colour consultancy and advice at our showroom, helping you to select not only the right shade, but the correct finish and durability for your paint project.
