non-toxic peva shower curtains

EVA shower curtain

That nasty smell emanating from your new vinyl shower curtain may be an indication of the many toxins it’s off-gasing into your home’s air. The EPA and Environmental Health and Justice have found that PVC shower curtains can be laden with 108 volatile organic compounds, poisonous chemicals that off-gas into the air and can persist for the first 28 days while the curtain hangs in your home.

A good alternative is a PVC-free, PEVA shower curtain like the Green Grass design (above) and Zen Garden PEVA curtain(below).
