Can you have a more sustainable sex life?
Whether you’re an avid recycler, embracing more of a plant-based diet or just being a bit more conscientious about your travel choices, there are lots of little ways we can all make a big difference in tackling climate change and progress towards a greener way of life.
If you’re looking to make more eco-friendly choices, there’s no reason that should stop with your sex toys.
Sex toys often get a bad reputation for not being very eco-friendly. So many rely on disposable batteries, are made of plastic which end up in landfills or contribute to CO2 emissions from being shipped all over the world. But thankfully, there is no need to sacrifice your orgasms in an effort to be more environmentally friendly.
Which sex toy materials are eco-friendly?
There are lots of things to look out for when it comes to being kinder to the planet. Toys made from silicone are preferable. Not only are they the most body-safe material but silicone lasts longer, isn’t toxic to soil or ocean life and can be recycled.
If you’re opting for a toy with a motor, choose one that’s rechargeable to avoid those disposable batteries. Thankfully, USB rechargeable vibrators are pretty much the norm these days. Added bonus - these are usually fully waterproof meaning you can take your pleasure play into the bath or shower too!
If you want to go all-out, go for all-natural materials like glass or wood. Yes that’s right, wood. And that isn’t a euphemism. Glass and wood dildos are perfect eco-friendly options as they're naturally latex and Phthalate-free making them completely body-safe and friendly to the planet too.
