The goal of our project was to determine the reasons for Australian paint consumers' lack of interest in purchasing low VOC paint, and to present recommendations to Australian pain manufacturers, environmental organizations, and government officials regarding strategies to promote the use of this product. We identified cost, unawareness, and product quality as probable reasons for the poor sales of such paints. We also developed a brochure to help interested organizations and paint manufacturers improve sales of low VOC paint.
