Did you know typical bandages are made from plastic or PVC, and that they can have a whole host of chemicals in the adhesive, too? There are safer alternatives to conventional bandages, including bamboo fiber and silicone. And while silicone is not biodegradable, it is hypoallergenic and non-irritating, and it is nontoxic to aquatic and soil organisms. Bamboo and silicone bandages aren’t easy to find right now, so look online for sources that sell them.
