Toxic Chemicals in School Supplies: The Newly Discovered Worry for the 2020-2020 School Year

Buying school supplies just got a little tougher outside of higher prices families are already having to endure. Now there's wider reports of toxic chemicals (primarily lead) in school supplies that have been used for decades and ingested by generations of kids...

In the meantime, a lot of environmental and health officials are a bit concerned at the volume of school products that were sent to stores using PVC. Generally, any products made with PVC have lead in there that could cause the most harm through the use of the plastic in special kinds of pencils and lunchboxes. Yes, those two alone are obviously going to be used by some kids in a way that could get lead into their system very easily, especially the lunchbox.

It's not just those two products either. You'll see PVC used in practically every school supply you can think of including backpacks, rulers and anything that has that glossy look of being made by the world's greatest asset of plastic. Of course, when you consider that most of us from prior decades all grew up with lunchboxes in school and have remembrances of drinking out of those thermoses, we didn't stop and think back then that those things were coming from China and using chemicals that should have been banned from even hitting our shores.

Yes, it's the lead that could have instigated a lot of problems in kids who were prone to put their school supplies in their mouths when they shouldn't. The dangers of what even the smallest amounts of lead could cause when ingested into a child's body doesn't get reported enough in the media. I even wrote a piece here not long ago about how generations of royal families may have absorbed lead into their bodies due to decanters, plates and glasses being made with lead already centuries ago. My insinuation was that it very well could have caused some mental and behavioral issues some of them went through, too, since lead does inhibit the brain. And in children still developing their brains, it can be a chilling problem once you realize they're absorbing lead into their systems via tools meant to enhance their education.

Even the CDC has been admitting lately that the smallest amounts of lead can affect the brain in a child and inhibit their ability to learn. That's why PVC will likely be removed from most school supplies before long. A lot of people are wondering what damage it'll cause this school year, though, as millions of kids get school supplies their parents bought for them that they may be oblivious to in their potential dangers. There are simple steps to take, however, to solve the problem...


The good news: Some school supplies are organic...

While tougher to find as are most healthy products (and in America that still seems unconscionable if suspicious), some companies make school supplies made from organic materials. You obviously have to look on the product to see the evidence of that, because some of them actually state they don't use PVC. The key to determine if it's truly PVC free is to simply check if the product contains PVC in the first place. You know how cryptic those kinds of things are on products when they put strange codes and abbreviations that you need a small education on in order to decipher.

Just look for the word of "vinyl" on the product. That's the main giveaway that PVC is in that lunchbox or pencil set, although some products will just use a "V" to make it less obvious, maybe on purpose. Occasionally, you'll see a product with the full PVC letters, but you probably won't any longer with the knowledge of what it can do.

If you don't see those clues, then it's a good bet the product is made either with something called EVA (an alternative and chemical-free plastic to PVC), or the obviously natural aluminum, glass or good old paper.

____

The frustration here, again, is those natural products likely won't be found in your local mainstream stores in huge supplies. So you'll have to look around and take a little time to check out various products. Nevertheless, the mainstream stores are supposedly going to take action in removing all products using PVC as soon as it's possible.

It's too late then to take back those years when we adults were in school two or three decades ago and assumed it was ok to drink out of that likely PVC-made thermos from a lunchbox displaying popular characters from a TV show. It gives you pause when you go back and take a look at your old lunchboxes today if you're the kind like me who kept them in storage...
