Recycled, mold-proof shower curtains – NO PVC

by Tao Oliveto, Carrboro, NC

The curtain I wrote about last week, has arrived from Health Goods. I was first pleased that it was sent in minimal packaging, with NO promotional materials included. The good news just kept on coming when I read the cover sheet (which was printed on recycled paper with vegetable-based ink):

100% RECYCLED polyester fabric

Water-repellent and anti-microbial

Fabric and product made in USA

Requires no shower rod hooks – buttons made from sustainable├é┬á Tagua nuts

Each full size curtain saves 130,000 BTU’s of energy

It comes in 3 sizes, so I was able to get one for my stall shower without all the extra material. I’ve used it a few times now and it truly is water-repellent and has no smell whatsoever. I’ve been fighting mold on my hemp/cotton curtains for so long, that this is a thrill for me. This curtain will never need to be replaced – it’s heavyweight and obviously durable – what a happy thought!

To order or for more info., go here. Pass it on to your showering friends!

    Good Going on the phone call, Tommy! If we all took time to let businesses know what we, as consumers, WANT, it can make a difference.

    When it comes to shipping procedures, I’ve been frustrated ordering online, too. In fact, I was raving on this blog about REAL GOODS and made an order of CFLs and some other great green stuff, but then it proceeded to arrive in many separate boxes – because of back-orders, I was told. I asked if they could hold everything until back-orders came in, but it ends up they are too big and computerized to do logical things like that – how sad. Like you, I made another call and went through a couple levels of management to let them know how much this mattered to me.
