Many consumer products and packaging are made from PVC. The following is a general list of some common products that are typically made of PVC. This list is meant to be a starting point for identifying what common products are packaged in or made from PVC.
While this list may help get you started, not all containers and products are labeled. If you suspect that a product or its packaging is made of PVC, we suggest you contact the product manufacturer and ask them directly about the materials used in the product or its packaging. One way to be sure if the packaging of a product is made from PVC is to look for the number “3″ or for the letter “V” inside or underneath the universal recycling symbol. This means that the product is made of PVC. Soft flexible plastic products that are made with PVC often have a distinct odor.
