PVC gets animated
Sam Suds is a noir-like private dick - er, bar of soap - who works out of the bathroom of the Johnson family. He has already cleaned their home of lead and DDT - his latest criminal is PVC. After being tipped off by a damsel in distress - a rubber duck in a pink hat - Sam Suds gets down to business. The message of the video: PVC is the poison plastic, also known as vinyl. You can spot it by the 3 or the v.
I'm embarrassed to say, this is something I actually didn't know prior to watching. Of course I knew that PVC was bad, and that it's probably in everything around me, but I didn't know it was actually labelled as such. I knew that those numbers in the recycle symbol on plastic bottles stood for something, 1, 2, 3 - but I didn't know the 3 meant PVC. I took a look around my own bathroom after watching the video and realized Sam was right - proof that PVCs are all around me.
Watch the video here. And then take action - ask Target to go PVC free. Then take a look around your home for the PVC.
