Eco-Friendly PEVA Shower Curtain Liner
This shower curtain liner is friendly to the environment while being a
great asset to your bathroom. The mold and allergy resistant liner is
chlorine free and odorless, thanks to the blended EVA (ethyl vinyl
acetate) material. It also has rust-resistant, reinforced grommets and
a weighted bottom hem, offering sturdiness and ease of use. Made from
100% EVA vinyl.
The typical shower curtain liners measure 70" W x 72" L (177.8 cm x
180.3 cm). We also carry liners to fit stalls 54" x 78" and extra long
70" x 84". You can pick from the drop down menu below. Wipe clean
regularly. Will survive washing machine cleaning on gentle cycle. Let
hang to dry in the sun.
carry liner colors in clear, frosty white or biege. We'll
always assume and ship the clear liner (by far the most popular) unless
you tell us via phone call or email that you prefer a color. You can
let us know your preference in remarks box at checkout too.
Why PVC is bad news:
(PVC) is unique in its high chlorine and additives content, which makes
it an environmental poison throughout its life cycle. Vinyl chloride is
a known human carcinogen. PVC releases dioxin and other persistent
organic pollutants during its manufacture and disposal and cannot be
readily recycled due to it chlorine and additive content. Furthermore,
additives are not bound to the plastic and leach out. When you
open your typical shower curtain liner you can smell that heavy plastic
smell. Don't install it! PVC will off-gas into your home for weeks.
50% of PVC manufactured is used in construction, in products such as
pipelines, wiring, siding, flooring and wallpaper. As a building
material PVC is cheap, easy to install and easy to replace. PVC is
replacing ‘traditional’ building materials such as wood, concrete and
clay in many areas. Although it appears to be the ideal building
material, PVC has high environmental and human health costs that its
manufacturers fail to tell consumers.
From its manufacture
to its disposal, PVC emits toxic compounds. During the manufacture of
the building block ingredients of PVC (such as vinyl chloride monomer)
dioxin and other persistent pollutants are emitted into the air, water
and land, which present both acute and chronic health hazards. During
use, PVC products can leach toxic additives, for example flooring can
release softeners called
phthalates. When PVC reaches the end of its useful life, it can be
either landfilled, where it leaches toxic additives or incinerated,
again emitting dioxin and heavy metals. When PVC burns in accidental
fires, hydrogen chloride gas and dioxin are formed.
