Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a difficult plastic to recycle and it contaminates other plastics in the recycling process.
Most important, the production and burning of PVC products generates dioxins and furans.
Thus plastic commonly used in packaging and household products is a major cause of dioxin formation in open burning and garbage incinerators.
Many local authorities in Europe have PVC-free policies for municipal buildings, pipes, wallpaper, flooring, windows and packaging.
Avoid using PVC products in daily life.
