There are a couple different ways to make a paint job eco-friendly; one of the ways is with low VOC paints, which have a volatility of 200 grams or less of paint. Green Seal is a company that is excelling in this endeavor, creating low-VOC with a paint that has less than 50 grams. Another route is to use natural elements in your paint, like clay paint. Another option is a limestone wash (or lime wash) which creates a green color and a green (environmentally friendly) paint. Some brands in particular are BioShield Paint and YOLO Colorhouse.
In additon to gembury’s suggestions, Colori Chicago, BioShield, Silacoat, and Real Milk Paint are all good options for environmentally friendly paints that are non-toxic.
Benjamin Moore also has an eco-friendly product, their “Green Promise” paints, which yield very little and sometimes 0 VOCs, as gembury described. Their website (linked below) have a couple nice videos explaining their product and its greenness.
