Blue Sky sells and consults to the general public on the use of environmentally friendly products. While these products are often referred to as “green,” we prefer products that are “blue,” representing the next level of eco-consciousness (see FAQs). At Blue Sky we firmly believe that eco-friendly materials can be more esthetically pleasing and durable than those that are not. Browse our online catalog.
Blue Sky offers unique and innovative products (many previously not sold in Western New York). Our individualized service and product selection will enable you to achieve eco-minded project goals. At the Blue Sky Showroom at 95 Perry Street, we offer a whole new world of earth-friendly opportunities to explore.

Vermont Natural Coatings - Vermont Natural Coatings (VNC) is a line of wood finish products that are composed of approximately 20% recycled whey, a natural byproduct of cheese-making. Developed by the University of Vermont, the goal of VNC is to reuse whey byproduct as durable, safe coatings for wood. Not only does this product use recycled material, but by using whey protein, VNC eliminates the need for heavy metal driers and displaces both the toxic co-binders and carcinogenic solvents typically found in polyurethanes. The result is a product that offers lots of great benefits including: no toxic fumes during or after application, quick drying and clean-up and one-third more coverage than most polyurethanes.
