Well, this is not big news. PVC is a bad thing to expose our family to. It has, however been getting a lot more bad press lately and rightly so….the CHEJ has a 40 page report about it called Volatile Vinyl. PVC is also referred to often as the poison plastic. One of the products that we are especially being warned about is shower curtains. The report especially lambasted them. Just look at this table I snagged from the report:
Shower curtains seem so innocent but they pack a nasty chemical punch! I don’t have any shower curtains…only glass doors…so I do not have to worry about this issue but I did make a list of safe shower curtains that have no PVC or other volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Hopefully this list will help some people phase out their PVC shower curtains.
EVA Vinyl Shower Curtains – These are PVC free and they come in many great designs that are educational too! They actually help you learn about things from weather to the periodic table. What better way to spend shower time?
