Lowe’s Faces Mounting Pressure to Stop Selling Flooring Chemical


Home Depot, the world's largest home-improvement chain, announced Wednesday that it will phase out vinyl flooring with phthalates by the end of this year. The company made the move after working with environmental and health advocates, who found the chemical in flooring sold at Home Depot, Lowe's and Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc.

Now attention turns to Lowe's, the industry's second-largest chain, which is still reviewing research on the chemical. The company said it's working with suppliers to consider alternatives to offer the "best possible products."
