Amazon Select Paint

Not only do we sell eco-friendly Amazon Select Paint, but we also use it to spruce up our space at the reuse warehouse!

The Amazon Select Paint at Community Forklift is an eco-friendly latex paint that is manufactured from surplus paints collected from governments, businesses, and consumers. The paint is reprocessed to guarantee that every gallon meets strict color and coverage specifications and then packaged and sold here at the reuse warehouse and across the country.

This interior/exterior paint comes in 20 beautiful colors and we love to demonstrate them around the warehouse! From Slate in the furniture area to Ice Blue in the bathroom fixtures aisle, you’ll find some of our favorite colors out on display. We’ve even painted some chairs in Swiss Almond and a few other colors, on display in the paint section!

Visit our website to learn more about Amazon Select Paint’s reprocessing system and environmental benefits, or check out our Community Forklift Marketplace to see a selection of the colors we have in stock! One-gallon cans are $20 and five-gallon buckets are $68. To see all that’s available, visit our reuse warehouse any day between 12 and 5 pm. Happy Painting!
