Sofas, Chairs, Rugs, and Electronics
Please note that this section contains my personal notes from my readings on this topic.
From The Toxic Sandbox (2007) by Libby McDonald; page 94:
You would think there would be very few phthalates in the living room and office, but inf act, phthalates are used in no-skid backings on rugs and carpets and in the upholstery on couches and armchairs. While many companies — including Sony, Ikea, Nike, Herman Miller, Shaw Carpets, Interface, Samsung, and Panasonic — are committed to phasing out phthalates, much work remains to be done to completely eradicate these toxins from our households.
