I am a new follower of this blog and I am ashamed to find that I have bought a sewing machine that was packaged in a styrofoam block that also comes with a convenient PVC machine cover. At first, I felt that I had to return it, but the seller was so nice and professional. The machine also works great (he changed the plastic gears to metal gears). With all this I was tempted and I had resigned.
Now every morning when I wake up, I stare at the PVC cover and feel guilty. I know that PVC is hazardous to everyone, but what should I do with it? Should I be putting it in some place other than the landfill?
Please give me suggestions, thank you.
