Where can I buy the greenest shower curtain liners? What do I look for?

When it comes to greening the shower, remember this simple rule: No vinyl, that’s final. Commonly used vinyl shower curtain liners outgas toxic chemicals, diminishing indoor air quality. Instead, look for a heavy duty shower curtain made from hemp, which is naturally antifungal and antibacterial. The thick hemp fibers will get wet, but your floor won’t. Just remember to leave the curtain extended when you’re finished showering; this promotes even drying and discourages mold growth. Check out some tips in Green Your Home on a Budget.
