In Search of PVC Free Non-Slip Bath Mats

In Search of Non-Slip PVC Free Bath Mats
Toxic PVC plastic is still a mainstay in the bathrooms across America, so the hunt for PVC free bath mats has been a long project. We're happy to finally offer you a nice list of safer options.

Now we're not talking about just any old bath mat here – we were looking for the ever elusive “rubbery” mat with safety grip.  We've come across many different styles of non-rubbery bath mats:  recycled wood, bamboo and teak that would be fine, but our goal was to find one that could be used with our kids to provide a non-slip surface.

Non-Slip PVC Free Bath Mats

Throughout our research, it was interesting to learn about the different types of materials used in bath maths.  Take a look at what each of the following PVC and phthalate-free bath mats are made from.

We would love to hear about other PVC free bath mats you've found!

    We found some at Target. They are very cushiony! I think they are called spa bath mats. Target also has PVC free shower curtains – just think of that nasty smell when you open the package of a regular shower curtain made entirely of PVC.

    I would caution against styrene if you are worried about environmental toxins.

    Anyone found another silicone bath mat….? The manholes seem permanently out of stock.

    Ikea has natural rubber bath mats and PVC free shower curtains as well.

    I've just bought a TPR tub mat – thermoplastic rubber? I think it's okay. I'm in Canada, and I got it at the Bay (big department store).

    I have a bath mat from Vita Futura, and it's been okay except that one year on it is starting to disintegrate. Ick.
