Blue Vinyl is a 2002 documentary film directed by Daniel B. Gold and Judith Helfand. With a lighthearted tone, the film follows one woman’s quest for an environmentally sound cladding for her parents’ house in Merrick, Long Island, New York. It also investigates the many negative health effects of polyvinyl chloride in its production, use and disposal, focusing on the communities of Lake Charles and Mossville, Louisiana, and Venice, Italy. Filming for Blue Vinyl began in 1994.Watch the full length documentary via YouTube or iTunes or order the DVD on amazon.

Highlight clips put together from the documentary “Blue Vinyl” – put this together because the story needs to be told to a larger audience. It was originally produced in 2002, before the era of YouTube. Right now it’s collecting dust in distribution neverland.As it is, these clips constitute 21.4% (21min of 98min total).
