Founded in 1988 by Henry J. Reinartz, Eco-House got its start importing and distributing natural, non-toxic paints and wood stains from Europe. Not long after its founding, schools began reaching out to Henry looking for safer solvent and medium alternatives than the current products in the market. Henry knew what they wanted and developed a product line that was natural and low/non-toxic products. Universities and Art Colleges becoming early adopters of these products. Word got out and retail locations started putting these safer alternatives on their shelves.
The Eco-House mission and passion of safety and minimal environmental impact remains paramount in our vision going forward. New products will be added and will continue to be made with renewable or abundantly available natural raw materials. All products will continue to offer the highest technical and Health Safety Standards.
