PVC manufacturing pollution

In your description of vinyl windows you failed to mention how PVC manufacturing is one of the biggest toxic polluters in the world.

You’re right – PVC is made from petroleum and thus is harmful to the environment. Fiberglass is a green option and is made from the same base as glass – sand. Fiberglass and glass also expand and contract at almost the same rate so you have less seal failure than wood or vinyl.
