Hi, I'm Lisa Beres, half of the Healthy Home Dream Team and today I'm gonna show you how to choose a non-vinyl shower curtain. If you're using a PVC shower curtain it's time to change that. Why, because PVC stands for Poly Vinyl Chloride and it's one of the most toxic plastics. You can find out if yours is by looking for the recycle symbol it'll always have a number 3 and I have some healthy options for you that are so much better. Number 1 you can go with organic cotton which is not going to be using chemical fertilizers or pesticides and you may or may not use a liner with that. Another great example is linen. The same thing goes for that look for a certified organic and depending on where you buy it you may or may not use a liner with that but my favorite of all the options is hemp and the reason that I love hemp so much is it's naturally resistant to mold, mildew and bacteria plus it's machine washable which makes life so much easier and finally if you do need to use a liner you want to look for a PVC free liner and look instead for PEVA. This is actually chloride free and it's not gonna off gas those nasty chemicals like you get with PVC, phthalate-free, healthy for you, and it's water proof.
