There are a lot of "green" options out there today, and we love filling our home with most of them! We have tried, used and loved products made from bamboo and stainless steel...but one green option that we had not tried at all was hemp! After reading about hemp and all of it's fabulous uses (for food, clothing, and green items for your home), and all of it's benefits, we decided to give it a try! EcoConvenience sent us a 100% natural hemp shower curtain. It is WONDERFUL! It was just the thing we needed after years of plastic shower curtains that rip, tear, pull through the curtain hangers at the top and worst of all - get covered with layers of icky films, mildews and who knows what else! The curtain is made right here in Canada and has been been made well. It is tightly woven and keeps water in the tub - we haven't had any "leaking" issues at all with it! You can definitely tell that the hemp shower curtain is top-notch. Not only is it eco-friendly but it also seems very strong and durable and I am certain it will last for many years. Another feature that I just LOVE about it is that the shower curtain is resistant to bacteria and fungi - in my opinion this is a VERY important feature to have in areas that experience a lot of moisture and wetness (like the tub and shower!) The quick drying time of the curtain is a great feature as well. Now, this curtain does require a BIT more maintenance (monthly washing), but the few minutes that it takes to wash our shower curtain a month are certainly outweighed by all the benefits of a 100% natural hemp shower curtain!!
EcoConvenience is filled with many high quality, green products that are practical, useful and perfect for homes, offices, etc. They've got water bottles for the whole family - a great item for summer! And I've definitely fallen in love with their brilliant and beautiful (and eco-friendly!) art supplies. When it comes to earth friendly products, EcoConvienience is a great place to shop!
