I want to buy a truly natural varnish. Any brand name or retailer in the Bend, OR, area?

Asked by Diane Whitmire

Building a completely nontoxic strawbale home this summer in the High Desert of OR. I'm looking for a natural varnish -- I've read that it's known as "lazur." Oregon has a lot of green products.

Dear Diane,

Ecohaus, with stores in Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco, also does mail order.

They have a good selection of low/no-VOC finishes and sealants.

Check out their offerings at Ecohaus.com.
