There are allot of people out there that are down on their luck and opting to get things at lower prices, and when its lower, the quality tends to be lower also. I am going to post some info about PVC. The poison plastic, that seems to be in almost everything we use.

This is also to help parents make sure that they are not slowly giving this poison to their kids. Its in almost everything from school binders, to the plastic reusable cups. I will give the info about which plastic, and the symbol to recognize if it is either vinyl, or PVC.

Did you know that the weird smell when you open your vinyl shower curtain, is poison that can make you sick.

I hope this is informative and helpful, to those who may get sick sometimes and not know why. Especially when you heat up any PVC container.

Its hard to get rid of all PVC, but if you know which objects have them, you can at least control, which one you can do without. Here are some of the things you have at home.

Household Items:
Cleaning product containers
Clothes racks (covers metal to prevent rusting)
Checkbook covers
Fake Christmas trees
Imitation leather furniture
Mattress covers
Pet care product containers
Photo album sheets
Self-adhesive labels and stickers
Shower curtains

Kitchen Items:
Appliance casings
Beverage containers
Dish drying racks (covers metal to prevent rusting)
Dishwasher, refrigerator and
freezer racks
Drinking straws
Food containers
Food wrap
Plastic utensils

There's more listed here.

Also there is a list of company's and stores that use PVC. Here are some.

Other Useful Reports and Resources on PVC Hazards

I figured with the economy the way it is and school coming up soon, that we can make families aware of the effects, and products that can be harming you and your families. This isn't just a thread for ATSer's but for your family and friends, especially with young children.

Be informed.

Peace to you...

It seems to surround us everyday, no matter what we do we seem to be in full contact with PVC.

Peace to you...

What is it exactly about PVC that is harmful in most of these products. I understand the reusable cups but nearly everything else is not really orally administered or able to get into your body unless you put them in your mouth and leave them there.

Well I use straws everyday and I see # all happening to me. Some things on here are obscene.

While this list may help get you started, not all containers and products are labeled. If you suspect that a product or its packaging is made of PVC, we suggest you contact the product manufacturer and ask them directly about the materials used in the product or its packaging. One way to be sure if the packaging of a product is made from PVC is to look for the number "3" or for the letter "V" inside or underneath the universal recycling symbol. This means that the product is made of PVC. Soft flexible plastic products that are made with PVC often have a distinct odor.

Look whether some take this serious or not kids are using these products everyday.

Manufacturer or Brand Retailer Type of PVC Product

Crayola Target Packaging

Creative Bath Bed, Bath & Beyond Product

Heavy Duty Wal-Mart Product

Kid Care K-Mart Packaging

Main Stays Wal-Mart Product

Martha Stewart Everyday K-Mart Product

Whether or not you are using them, you are at least at one point or another touching, or inhaling these products, while in some cases ingesting it. When you use a cup that is made with PVC, the poison does not just go away. These products are especially dangerous under extreme heat, when used in microwaves.

Peace to you...
