US Green Chamber member PaintGreen explains that they felt a responsibility to reduce the impact they have on the environment while still providing the best quality, eco-friendly products and painting services available.
“Green attitude runs deep in the organization,” explained Jon Ray, owner and founder of PaintGreen Professional Painters. “We use sustainable office products, drive old trucks that get good gas mileage, and use the expensive roller covers that are reusable and renewable.”
PaintGreen was founded in 2007 with one employee: Ray, who has been a painter for nearly fifteen years. Now, four years later, his team includes two salespeople, an office manager, and four painting crews.
“We’ve seen huge growth despite the poor economy,” Ray said. “We are the highest rated painter on Yelp.com, angieslist.com, kudzu.com, and have received multiple customer service awards.”
In order to be sustainable, the painters use canvas dropcloths instead of rolls of plastic. They also use non-toxic paint and ensure that their work is top-notch and will last for years to come.
Ray says that his goal for the future of PaintGreen is to be 100% solar, including the use of electric vehicles plugged into solar panels on the roof.
“Our values at PaintGreen align closely with the values at the Green Chamber, so membership was a natural fit,” Ray added.
PaintGreen was founded in 2007 by owner Jon Ray. They offer painting services for both interior and exterior residential spaces, commercial spaces, and even special finishes.
Aside from their typical daily work, PaintGreen is committed to giving back to the community. They partner with Cecily’s Closet, a non-profit for children with special needs, in order to provide a room makeover for a child each month. They have also donated services to the East County Youth Center, the Xara Garden School, and the Cocina Club kitchen.
PaintGreen is located at 5694 Mission Center Road, Suite 601-602, San Diego, CA 92108. For more information, please visit www.paintgreen.com.
