President Rob Hann thanked our speaker Chris McCarthy who found Earth Paint in 2013. EarthPaint is a 501c(3) nonprofit based in Wood Dale, Ill. EarthPaint relies on contributions and fees for recycling old paint to fund its operations and employment of adults with disabilities. A longtime paint professional, Chris saw lots of unwanted – but perfectly good – paint accumulate and go to waste. He wanted to find a way to keep the endless gallons of paint he encountered from entering the landfill, where it can harm the environment. At EarthPaint, they recycle your old latex paint into a high-quality, sustainable product that works for any job, inside or outside.
