Environmentalists across the world have for many years shown their concerns over PVC in children’s products. In many countries PVC in rainwear is banned. This is because PVC contains phthalates which is a ‘nasty product’ that increases the flexibility of the plastic. It is not biodegradable and it is banned in plastic toys.
Raindrops Rainwear from Abeko is environmentally friendly and phthalates free. The fabric we use instead of PVC is called Atex – a super soft, flexible Polyurethane coated fabric which is waterproof, windproof and is machine washable. Why choose anything else?
