Why not vinyl?
I chose a recyclable vinyl alternative for two main reasons. First, plastic vinyl (aka plastic #3 or PVC) is not recyclable in most municipal waste processing plants. Unless consumers take special care to bring used PVC to a recycling center, they will end up in the landfill. Second, vinyl is a product of petroleum, specifically ethylene, which is produced by heating petroleum under extreme pressure. When ethylene is combined with chlorine to produce PVC, dioxins are released. A Greenpeace report called PVC: The Poison Plastic names dioxin as "one of the most toxic chemicals ever produced". No amount of exposure is safe. These stickers are 100% PVC free and they are fully recyclable in regular recycling bins.
