PVC FREE*
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) the third most common plastic product in the world, after polyethylene and polypropylene, is a synthetic material (polymer) present in many domestic and working environments in various forms and functions.
PVC is harmful to humans and the whole ecosystem throughout its life cycle, from the factory, to use, to disposal. Our bodies are contaminated with additive, poisonous chemical particles such as mercury and phthalates (toxic softeners that make it flexible). When it is produced or burned, PVC releases dioxins, a group of the most powerful chemicals ever tested, which can cause cancer as well as attack the immune system and the reproductive system.
During processing, to make the material flexible and resistant, additives are used that contaminate the entire recycling process, preventing the total disposal of PVC.
