Is there such a thing as truly non-toxic dry erase markers?
Is there such a thing as truly non-toxic dry erase markers? Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks :)
After a quick search, I couldn't find anything completely non-toxic (but that's kind of a difficult request since almost anything can be toxic in certain circumstances). I did find an option which is xylene-free (the toxic chemical most often used in dry-erase markers) called Auspen, which is also eco-friendly. According to them:
"AusPen markers are made of 100% recycled material, they use non toxic ink , they are refillable and recyclable. We are very pleased to be able to offer a more responsible whiteboard marker at a time when people are finally realizing that even the little things that they can do can really benefit our environment."
Here's a really great assessment done by a Washington School district in an attempt to find something non-toxic and environmentally friendly (and Auspen is one option they tested).
