Mounting Evidence of Health Risks From PVC Leads EverydayPlastics.com to Offer Plastic Products That Are Safe For All Users. Offering Both Pvc-Free and Phthalate-Free Plastic Sleeves, Pouches, and Pockets in an Effort to Help Promote Safer Work Materials, the Website Seeks to Raise Awareness of Alternatives to PVC.
Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) December 2, 2010
There is mounting evidence that there are significant health risks associated with the lifecycle of PVC products and EverydayPlastics.com is seeking to provide safer products for their customers. “There has been much discussion about ‘green’ plastics and bio-plastics, but there is not a reliable supply chain for a reliable product that has the high presentation quality of PVC,” says Conway.
After learning about the health risks of PVC throughout it’s life cycle from groups such as besafenet.com/pvc/ and pvcfree.org among others, Conway led his group in researching the risks to his employees and customers. In discussions with vendors, Conway pushed for products that provide the presentation quality of vinyl but with lower health risks and a reasonable price point.
When asked why the website still offers vinyl products, Conway replied, “there are many safe applications for PVC, but we are seeking to provide information so that our customers can make an informed decision about what is best for them”. In addition, the company is working to release another website that will focus solely on pvc-free and phthalate-free products, including household goods and toys.
Conway hopes that the increasing sales from the Pvc-Free Plastic Sleeves will motivate manufacturers to re-tool and produce more of these safer products. As more of these products are made available, the pricing will come down and the awareness of the options should increase as well.
