The curtain will stop water from spraying outside your shower without a plastic liner. This keeps unnatural plastics out of our landfills. The shower curtain will get wet, but will not leak through. The hemp shower curtain will rapidly air dry which helps prevents mold growth associated with plastic liners.
Our hemp fabric is made from Romanian grown hemp which is grown without pesticides and chemical fertilizers. The hemp plants use less water than cotton plants and give a greater fiber yield per acre. The entire hemp plant can be used by people and industry. Other practical uses are: rope/cord, fabric, fiber, paper, medicine, cosmetics, paint, biomass fuel, oil, and food.
The growing, processing, and weaving of this hemp fabric provides needed employment to hundreds if not thousands of people in this formerly deprived country.
Our hemp shower curtain has a natural resistance to mildew and bacteria, and can be machine washed to clean any grime buildup. After machine washing simply hang the curtain up to dry, any wrinkles will disappear during showering. You may find it necessary to use a natural mildew preventative from time to time depending upon climate and your shower's natural ventilation.
We use sturdy and rustproof nickel plated brass grommets which will enable your curtain to last for years.
Using your eco friendly hemp shower curtain demonstrates your concern for our planet's environment by reducing chemical and plastic use, reducing landfill mess, as well as beautifying your bathroom environment by bringing nature into your everyday life.
An eco friendly shower curtain is one that is made from natural and sustainable materials rather than vinyl. There are a few different types you can find, including those made from hemp, cotton, or bamboo. The from Green Nest is one of my favorite options. It’s made from organic cotton and natural linen and is 100% nontoxic!
If you’ve ever put up a brand new vinyl shower curtain, you’ve probably noticed that “new shower curtain smell” that takes over your bathroom for a couple of days. Well, what you might not know is that that smell is actually due to toxic chemicals being released out into the air – chemicals that have been linked to serious health problems! Choosing an eco friendly shower curtain is important if you want to avoid these toxins in your home.
