Tell Wal-Mart to Stop Selling Products Containing Poison PVC Plastic

Last fall, Wal-Mart committed to phasing out PVC packaging, sending shockwaves throughout the chemical industry.  Help leverage this victory and send a message to Wal-Mart asking them to declare independence from PVC, the poison plastic.

From vinyl shower curtains to children's toys, PVC (polyvinyl chloride) plastic products pervade our homes and lives.  These products are dangerous to our health and environment from start to finish - in the factory, at home, and in the trash, releasing poisonous chemicals linked to cancer and birth defects.   The new shower curtain smell is the smell of toxic chemicals being released in your home.  The good news is safe and cost-effective alternatives exist.

Wal-Mart sells many common consumer products out of the poison plastic. Families shouldn't have to worry whether their children's toys or shower curtain may expose their children to dangerous toxins.  As the worlds largest retailer bringing in over $300 billion in sales, Wal-Mart has a responsibility to sell safe and healthy products instead of products containing unnecessary dangerous chemicals.  Other retailers, such as Ikea, have completely phased out PVC.
