Graphenstone Chosen as Paint Supplier for The Eden Project
30 November 2022

Graphenstone UK Paints is to partner with the Eden Project, to help the visitor attraction measure CO2 absorption levels across the site.

Graphenstone is known as the most sustainably certified paint brand in the world. Graphenstone paints are certified with one of the world’s lowest profiles in CO2 with their paints demonstrating significant CO2 absorption benefits during the curing process.

The paints are to be used in key sites around the Eden Project from visitor spaces to a new sustainable plant nursery which will also be the home of new facilities for students and learning laboratory spaces. The Eden Project will also be working with Graphenstone going forward on tracking and tracing decarbonisation levels. 

Under the terms of the new retail deal, Graphenstone UK will be the Eden Project’s official preferred paint supplier.


Ecological and Sustainable Excellence


The majority of Graphenstone UK’s formulations comply with BREEAM, WELL & LEED and hold one of the widest ranges of respected and recognised harm-free certifications on the market, such as Cradle to Cradle Gold, Global Green Tag and the Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold mark.

Patrick Folkes, Founder of Graphenstone UK, said: “We are thrilled to be on this exciting journey with the Eden Project, which I view as one of the true wonders of the world. We have worked hard to become one of the world's most certified sustainable paints companies, and our mission is to ultimately change how people think about and use paint.

“Thanks to a combination of the oldest, most trusted minerals like lime and silicate, which work hand in hand with our 21st-century Graphene technology, our high-quality and meaningful formulations are the perfect partner for Eden, a true beacon of ecological and sustainable excellence.”
