About this deal
It's pressed by GZ, so don't be surprised if it need a wet clean or has some handling marks from the factory, fortunately the copy I received was just a little dusty and plays relatively noise free. Unfortunately, one of the biggest challenges facing the eco-friendly crafter is that vinyl isn’t known for its safety. Vinyl is made from a highly toxic plastic that has been linked to many health conditions and is a massive contributor to environmental pollution, particularly ocean pollution. Despite this fact, vinyl is still widely used, and there aren’t many green options. But have you ever wondered how toxic this vinyl is? It is common knowledge that craft vinyl is not edible – at least to older kids and adults. But you put it on wine glasses, mason jars, and coffee mugs that go in your dishwashers. You put it on apparel that touches your skin and use it to label things your kids touch everyday.

From Cancer Alley to Your University: Environmental Injustice and the Campaign for PVC-free Schools
Vinyl chloride can be devastating for human health. According to a 2020 report published in the academic journal Cancer Spectrums, acute exposure to vinyl chloride can cause loss of consciousness, lung and kidney irritation, and, after sustained exposure, a rare form of liver cancer. The study also found that those living within 10 miles of a petrochemical facility face an increased risk of cancer as well as other health issues. Most PVC is thrown away because it is extremely difficult to recycle. This situation is unlikely to change in the foreseeable future. Because each PVC product contains a unique mix of additives, post-consumer recycling of mixed PVC products is difficult and cannot yield vinyl products with qualities equivalent to the original. PVC products impede municipal plastics recycling, fouling the production lines of other plastics recycling operations, leading plastics recyclers to describe vinyl as a contaminant. Even after 20 years of effort in the U.S., the PVC industry has been unable to establish a credible recycling program or reduce net production of virgin PVC. Craft vinyl appears harmless, and some schools of thought actually claim that it is harmless unless heated. This has given rise to a debate on whether it is toxic or not.

The EPA told E&T the local fire chief made the decision to burn the chemicals in consultation with the train operator Norfolk Southern, local law enforcement and response officials from Ohio.

After careful investigations of vinyl’s properties and the costs and methods used to produce and dispose of it, organizations as diverse as Kaiser Permanente health care, Apple, Whole Foods Market, and Wal-Mart Stores have committed to phase out vinyl. Firestone Building Products stopped offering vinyl products, citing environmental concerns, even thought they were a profitable product line, and Forbo Flooring calls vinyl an unsustainable product – even though the company still sells it in Europe! Fortunately, heat transfer vinyl differs from conventional craft vinyl in toxicity. Because heat transfer vinyl is designed for apparel, it is held to different standards than conventional craft vinyl. Clothing with vinyl that is intended to be worn close to the skin or for young children and infants must meet rigorous demands for safety, making it the safer and less toxic choice. Even though there’s currently no PVC-free vinyl, there is a brand of craft vinyl that is more eco-friendly. Stahls’ Heat Transfer Vinyl When an item made with craft vinyl is put in the dishwasher or hot tub, the hot water cycle causes micro particles to leach into the drainage. This is toxic too.Searching for fresh air, Bennett and her husband recently moved across the river to Lake Charles. They’re living there as they make plans to move even further from Mossville, since pollution still travels from Westlake plants to Lake Charles.
