PVC-Free Schools Campaign Fact-Sheets

CHEJ has kicked off a brand new PVC-free schools campaign to encourage schools to ditch the poison plastic in favor of safer alternatives.  We need your help to make it a success!

We’ve created a series of new PVC-free schools fact-sheets to help educate parents, students and decision-makers on the dangers of PVC plastic:

  • PVC, the Poison Plastic – Unhealthy for Our Nation’s Children and Schools: PDF | HTML
  • Our Health and PVC – What’s the Connection?: PDF | HTML
  • PVC Flooring and Toxic Cleaning Products: PDF | HTML
  • Top Ten Reasons Your School Should Go PVC-Free: PDF | HTML
  • PVC & Environmental Justice: PDF | HTML
  • PVC Policies Around the World: PDF | HTML

Click the PDF links above to download the fact-sheets, or click HTML to view them as a web page.

Note – The downloadable fact-sheets are Adobe Acrobat PDF files.  If you don’t have Adobe Acrobat or Reader, click here to download this free software.

Get Involved!  Take Action for Healthy PVC-Free Schools

Safer and cost-effective alternatives are already available for virtually every PVC product in our nation’s schools.  Here’s how you can help today:

  • Encourage your school to renovate or build their school with PVC-free building materials such as PVC-free linoleum flooring and TPO roofing.
  • Encourage your school district, county or state to adopt a healthy PVC-free policy to avoid the use of PVC building materials and office supplies in favor of safer cost-effective alternatives.
  • Educate parents, teachers and students! Organize a screening of Blue Vinyl and Sam Suds for your PTA, teacher’s union, or concerned students.
  • Encourage organizations, such as PTA’s, teacher’s unions and parenting groups, to endorse the campaign or by passing a resolution.
  • Go Back to school PVC-free! When buying your back-to-school supplies, shop for PVC-free products.
  • Get involved today! If you’re interested in getting involved, or for more information, contact CHEJ at or at 703-237-2249.
