How to buy PVC-free school supplies
Many children’s school supplies contain polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a plastic material that contains harmful substances such as phthalates. The Center for Health, Environment and Justice has created a Back-to-School Guide to PVC-free School Supplies that features healthier and greener school supplies. These school supplies are safer for children and safer for the environment.
