& Community Minded
Riverside Painting is an award-winning, locally-owned company based in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. We’re proud to call Nanaimo our home, and want to make it even more beautiful, one house at a time. We also care about the environment we all share. On the surface paint is an important aesthetic, but its real purpose is to protect and preserve value. We choose high quality eco-friendly paints that will deliver long lasting colour and minimize negative environmental impact.
Nanaimo is Our Home
Just as we make every effort to respect your home, we do our best to protect the place and the environment where we live. We are committed to continuously working towards becoming a carbon neutral company.
When it comes to being eco-friendly, we have two key philosophies that we put into daily practice:
Waste not, want not.
We do our best to conserve materials and reduce waste in every area of our business. We reuse materials for as long as they can do the job without affecting the quality of our work. Almost everything we send in writing to clients has been recycled, from paper to staples.
Donate, don’t dispose.
If there is leftover paint from a job that the client doesn’t want to keep, Riverside Painting will donate it to the Habitat for Humanity Nanaimo ReStore program for reuse. This paint, along with other recycled building materials, is resold to raise funds for Habitat housing projects in Nanaimo. In addition, as our way of giving back, Riverside Painting donates a portion of their annual revenues to Habitat for Humanity International.
