1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / working with vinyl records? CRAFTING HEALTH HAZARD!! on: April 29, 2008 08:45:05 AM

Hi crafters. It has recently come to my attention that PVC is widely known as a poison plastic, and it was only today that I suddenly thought of vinyl records (which are apparently also made of PVC) and how us crafters like to use them and heat them up in the oven without knowing how dangerous it is to do so!

for more information -  http://archive.greenpeace.org/toxics/pvcdatabase/bad.html
and this is an entertaining and informative flash animation:  http://www.pvcfree.org/
http://www.chej.org/BESAFE/pvc/about.htm

so people! Let me know if you think I'm right! and then warn everyone! PVC causes cancer, birth defects, releases dangerous chemicals which pollute our bodies, and contaminates other plastics when recycled with them! This is scary stuff! I have 2 vinyl bowls and my sister has one she keeps food in!!

These are cool, but the first thing I thought when I saw them was 'i hope she doesn't keep food in them!'. sorry there are 9 pages of comments and i didn't feel like going through all of them, so if someone already brought this up then feel free to ignore this post.

though they look very awesome.

magnificent. I didn't know Krishna had a girlfriend! All I remember is Sita and whatsisname also with the blue skin.

So evidently, I don't remember. Absolutely fabulous.

I like your styles! Your backgrounds are really expressive. Very cool. I'd totally buy the blue one and the lady with the kimono and the last one is very lovely. Awesome.
