Eco-Friendly Sex Toys

Sustainable pleasure never felt so good

 

Earth Day takes place every April to raise awareness and support for the worldwide environmental movement. In honor of Earth Day, we discuss sex toy options that use planet-friendly materials. Most of us pay close attention to the chemicals in our foods and cosmetics but don’t really consider the materials used in our sex toys. 

Sex toys may not be the first thing you think of when you imagine being more “eco-friendly,” but the sex toy industry has a significant impact on the planet. Unfortunately, plastic, rubber, silicone from sex toys, and the materials that make condom wrappers and lube bottles are not always friends to our planet. Experts have estimated that by the year 2050, there will be around 12 billion metric tons of plastic in our landfills—plastic that, on average, takes 400 years to biodegrade. 

If you want to be more environmentally conscious, a good rule of thumb is to avoid jelly and PVC-type toys of any kind. PVC or polyvinyl chloride has a ton of chemicals present (phthalates) that you do not want anywhere near your private parts. Instead, stock up on eco-friendly sex toys—toys made with silicone are preferable because silicone lasts longer, isn’t toxic to soil or ocean life, and can be recycled. In addition, you can enjoy eco-friendly pleasure by using rechargeable batteries instead of disposable ones, toys made from recycled materials, and toys in eco-friendly packaging. To get even more Earth-friendly, you can also buy toys made with all-natural materials such as wood or glass.


Editor’s Note: Many all-natural toys on the market claim to be good for you and the environment; however, if your toy contains any porous material, it can harbor bacteria and produce harmful infections to the area - such as the vagina. If the material is porous, you should use it in tandem with a condom to prevent infections or consider a non-porous option.


Making the switch from something you’ve found as an essential part of your bedside table to a new era of sex toys can be quite the leap. But the good news is the sex tech industry has joined the eco-friendly crusade and is producing alternative environmentally friendly sex toy substitutes. As a result, the next generation of eco-friendly sex toys has landed, and we’ve compiled a list to help you consciously shop for environmentally-safe bedroom gadgets.
