Palm Beach Gardens, FL (PRWEB) December 11, 2015
Taking a shower should be one of the most relaxing times of the day. Many people use this time to relax, soothe their aches and pains, and cleanse their bodies. They use body washes infused with herbs from all over the world, indulge in specialized massaging shower heads, and decorate their bathrooms with lavish shower curtains and rugs to further appreciate this relaxing experience. But unfortunately, the general public does not know that they are being exposed to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) by the least expected shower accessory – PVC and vinyl shower curtain liners.
A study conducted by variegated environmental companies found that upon opening a new PVC or vinyl shower curtain liners, up to 108 VOCs were released into the home. It is possible that these chemicals will continue to be released for nearly a month regardless of if the home is aired out or not. The Center for Health, Environment & Justice has found that: "Toxic chemical off-gassing from PVC shower curtains may contribute to respiratory irritation, damage to the central nervous system, liver and kidney, nausea, headaches and loss of coordination." Not only does this noxious gas cause these numerous health concerns, but can be potentially harmful to reproductive health, along with pregnant women and their unborn children.
But, Smarty Pants Supplies, a newly emerging company that focuses on creating supplies and products for the home, announces they have put a safe, alternative twist to the outdated PVC and vinyl shower curtain liner. After three years in the supplies business, Smarty Pants Supplies continues to take essential and thorough steps to produce an eco-friendly, non-toxic, PEVA (polyethylene vinyl acetate) White Shower Curtain Liner. This new company manufactures a safe alternative shower curtain that does not produce dangerous gases.
PEVA, a material similar to arts and crafts glue, is amalgamated with natural gas to make a durable, heavyweight shower curtain liner that repels mold, mildew, and bacteria. The ingredients used to create PEVA are non-toxic and do not need to be treated with other abrasive chemicals to make this material soft and pliable like PVC does. Smarty Pants Supplies White Shower Curtain Liners are also chlorine free, which leaves the air in your home fresh and untouched.
In addition to environmentally friendly material, Smarty Pants Supplies White Shower Curtain Liner shower is heavy gauge, featuring rustproof grommets surrounded by a mesh border and three encased magnets that weigh the shower curtain liner down and attach the liner to the bathtub during showers.
And finally, not only has Smarty Pants Supplies created and produced a shower curtain that is superiorly constructed and keeps its consumer’s safe, but this company also provides a lifetime warranty, ensuring consumers that Smarty Pants Supplies stands by their product.
