June 17, 2014 (Newswire) - Dream Green USA (www.dreamgreenusa.com), producers of eco-friendly fashion and home decor products, have added Metro Meteor, the painting racehorse (www.paintedbymetro.com), as a featured artist for the Painted by Metro Eco-decor Collection (http://www.dreamgreenusa.com/#!painted-by-metro/c203q)— consisting of decorative pillows, wall decor and fashion totes.

"Metro is the latest artist — and the first horse — to add his work to Dream Green USA's unique and extensive line of eco-friendly home decor products," said Dream Green USA CEO Mark Molinas.
Produced by Dream Green USA, all Metro's products are 100% eco-friendly and made in the USA from recycled materials. Dream Green employs a digital printing process that conserves energy and produces no waste water or VOC's (airborne toxic chemicals) and uses non-toxic, aqueous (water) based printing and dry-dying inks, which are permanent and washable. Items in the line range in price from $69.99 for pillows, $299 for wall panels and $59.99-79.99 for fashion totes.
About Metro Meteor:
Metro was once considered one of the fastest Turf Sprinters at Belmont and Saratoga until a crippling leg injury ended his career and almost ended his life. Thanks to an innovative racehorse adoption program and an artistic owner, Metro has a new lease on life.
In order to channel his boundless energy, despite being prematurely retired, Metro Meteor's owner Ron Krajewski taught him how to hold and use a paintbrush. The rest, as they say, is history. Metro's original paintings, which are in limited supply, sell upwards of $1,100. To date, Metro's artwork has contributed over $60,000 toward saving his fellow racehorses.
"Metro's bold, free-style strokes create a palette of exquisite fanciful swirls and layers of textured color that make for an exceptionally beautiful product line," said Dream Green Product Designer Victoria D'Angelo. "What he achieves with a paintbrush (in his mouth) is both exceptional and sublime."
