PVC-Free Raincoats only $19.99! (baby/preschooler sizes only)

Fall rain is on it's way!  Today, at Eco Baby Buys are PVC-free raincoats (sizes 18mo to 4T) for only $19.99 + shipping - I did the calculation for me, and it would be $5.55 to ship, so $25.54 total, which is still a pretty good deal for this type of item from a company who does not use harsh chemicals, and they are $34.99 at Toys R Us/Babies R Us... doesn't sound as cheap compared to the clearance deals you can find on a traditional raincoat, but these you know are PVC-free. Click here to go to their site - the deal is for today only (9/28/2010)!


Bringing Basics Back tip:  Avoid PVC.  PVC is a type of plastic that modern science has molded for use in many applications - one of them is to soften it using phthalates to make things like raincoats, shower curtains and even bibs and baby toys - yikes!  The benefit is that it is weatherproof and wearable, the major con is that it contains harsh chemicals that have been linked to developmental disorders and delays and also cancer.  It is hard to tell whether or not the item contains PVC, so be sure to look for "PVC Free" on the tag, if it says "100% PVC", then run away!
