Hi All,

The PVC question also came to me from a member. It was raised due to an article in Paper, Film and Foil Converter that stated that its use as a film was decreasing because of environmental reasons. Doing a little research, I've found that although its the second most widely used plastic, Greenpeace considers it the "Poison Plastic" because it contains dioxins. Below is the link to their fact sheet. http://web.greenpeace.org/extra/?forward%5fdestination%5fanchor=%252fcampaig ns%252fintro%253fcampaign%25255fid%253d3988&campaign%5fid=3988&forward%5fsou rce%5fanchor=Polyvinyl%2520Chloride%2520Introduction&item%5fid=7752 Regards, Doreen
