How Dangerous is PVC in Toys?
PVC is a threat to your child's health! "There’s also the impact of toy production and disposal – a toy’s "lifecycle" – upon the health of the environment to consider, not least because it affects all our health. For example, one of the most toxic of all materials used in kids’ toys, products and packaging is PVC, also known as vinyl. Throughout PVC’s lifecycle, from production to use to disposal, PVC releases toxins into our environment and threatens the health of our children. In stark contrast to this toxic cycle, certified sustainable solid wood toys are made with fewer toxins and therefore are safer for the environment and our children’s health. The Problem of PVC Toys Polyvinyl chloride, also known as PVC or vinyl, is commonly used in teethers and soft squeeze toys for young children, beach balls, bath toys, dolls and other products, such as knapsacks, raincoats, and umbrellas. Health concerns for children who play with soft PVC toys center on toxic additives called phthalates (pronounced "tha-lates"). Phthalates are added to PVC as "plasticizers," which make it soft and flexible. Some phthalates have been linked to cancer, kidney and liver damage, harm to developing reproductive organs, and premature breast development in baby girls. Inhaling these chemicals can also worsen asthma in children. Phthalates are not bonded to the plastic, but can migrate, or leach out. Since young children often put toys into their mouths, they are especially at risk. Other hazardous additives to PVC include lead and cadmium, which can be released into the environment during manufacture and as a toy degrades. Additional environmental hazards occur during PVC’s manufacture and disposal."
