While some say the jury's still out on PVC, we make an effort not to have anything made from the material in our home. The off-gassing smell alone turns our stomach - we had to let the last PVC shower curtain we bought air outside for a week before we could have it in the house without getting nauseous. Luckily for us, there are now plenty of good looking and affordable non-vinyl shower curtain options around.
Until a few years ago it seemed like if you wanted to go PVC-free it meant either super-earthy hemp or plain boring white. While we actually think both of those options can be perfect in the right bathrooms, at times we've been left wanting more. Luckily for us the market seems to be responding to the PVC backlash and there are some great options out there these days, so you can have your non-toxic curtain and a stylish bathroom too. Since we don't like the hassle of a curtain with a separate liner, all of the curtains below can be used on their own - no liner needed.
