Is a painting which has been made totally from organic products but the materials have travelled from Portugal to USA then to UK more eco friendly than a painting where the canvas has been made in the UK (but not organic) and using organic toxic free oil paints, varnish and cleaners?

One of the keys to green living is supporting the local economy while doing what you can to protect the environment. That said if you buy a painting that is made using milk paint or non toxic oils such as linseed but on a canvas made in the UK it is a safe bet that you doing more for the environment than if its shipped around the world. As far as what releases more pollutants the one shipped around the world does... when you consider the emissions from the shipping vehicles, the emissions from the manufacture of the vehicles, the emissions from the production of the fuels ores and energy needed to create the products,shipping vehicles and place that the art work was created... General rule of thumb... Buy all natural/organic, if you can't buy all natural buy local made, if you can't buy local consider if you can do without.

Switching from your conventional paint to eco-friendly paint can do more than just help the planet, it can also prevent you from inhaling cancer causing chemicals that are formed when paint is mixed with phenol and formaldehyde.
