Blue Vinyl: Good movie. Bad plastic.

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

As you might imagine, I've seen my share of movies about toxic chemicals. There are a bunch, many of them excellent.

This one struck me because of the director's personal inspiration to track down the source of her parent's shiny new (practical, affordable, durable) vinyl siding. I love how she just won't stop short of convincing them it's not as simple as they think (been there?).

She had a hunch that vinyl had a dark side and, not surprising to me or Enviroblog readers, it does.

Find out about PVC for yourself by following co-director Judith Helfand's investigative globe trot to understand the real (not-so-simple) source of her parents' blue vinyl.
