Join VNC for the 1st National Bio-Based Products Day!

It's the first National Bio-Based Products Day! Learn more about bio-based products, their importance, what it means, and how you can contribute!

What does 'bio-based' mean?

'Bio-based' means that a product was made up of naturally derived materials such as agricultural, forestry, and marine materials. In order for a product to be certified as bio-based, it must contain at least 25% bio-based content. 

Vermont Natural Coatings uses whey protein, an agricultural material, and hemp oil, a forestry material, as ingredients in our USDA Certified Bio-Based Products. Both of these ingredients naturally occur and renew without causing any harm to our planet.

Why buy bio-based?

Purchasing USDA Certified Bio-Based products contributes to a cleaner, more sustainable world. Many products that you purchase contain harmful, toxic ingredients. By purchasing bio-based products, you are contributing to a greener planet.
