Valid consideration there! So stretch wrap is PVC? I know theres bad stuff in PVC. I used to work at a plastics manufacturer where they had to send product over to Taiwan to complete a certain stage of the manufacturing because it was highly carcingenic and illegal to do it in the US. The part where it liberated ethelyne dichloride to make polyvinyl chloride. Taiwan would send it back to us after the dangerous part was done then we would thermoform it into PVC pipe etc. You could leagally thermoform PVC here in the US but you couldnt legally heat it to melt temp because of the EDC. So overheating it would definitely dissolve edc gas into the water your drinking Scratch that idea then! Thanks Steve! It does make good fire starter tho.I'd stick with the wraps made from polyethlyene and avoid the PVC wraps. Too much potential for toxic stuff coming out of PVC, especially if it burns.
