What Is That Smell?
Remember that ‘plasticy’ smell as a kid when you pulled out your brand new pool toy or beach ball in the summer months? It was pretty distinctive and almost marked the start of summer really. And, of course, it always conjures up nice nostalgic memories. That’s all very well but in hindsight it would have been so much better had there been no smell at all.
Why? Well in the years since those halcyon days, researchers have revealed that what we were actually smelling as kids was the result of toxic gasses (and which are particularly prevalent when something made of PVC is heated up – such as in a shower or bath).
We’re sure you can see where we’re coming from here when we say a PVC-free shower curtain is not just necessary, but absolutely essential for your family’s health. And actually for some individuals like those who are chemically sensitive, there is no choice – PVC-free is actually the only way to go.
What’s a PVC-free shower curtain made from then?
Here at Vita Futura, PEVA has taken the place of PVC in our shower curtains. This is an environmentally friendly material which is non-chlorinated and lightweight. It doesn’t give off any gasses when heated (unlike vinyl shower curtains). You may also be reassured to learn that the curtains we sell are all produced in Europe and to high certification standards.
We’re delighted to add that because of this commitment to eco-friendly and non-toxic shower curtains you can find us in National Geographic magazine’s Green Guide.
