Nothing kills a boner like our planet’s pollution problem. Seriously, 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. While I’m sure most of us aren’t contemplating the sustainability of our Earth while getting it on, it does make sense that—in the face of a problem so overwhelming—many of us would want to do our small part to help the environment. And what better way to do so than with eco-friendly sex toys?
When we talk about pollution, a few leading causes come to mind: bags, bottles, straws, etc. And while these are definitely major pollution problem areas, they’re really ~just the tip~ of what’s being thrown away. Did you know that many of the sex toys on the market right now aren’t recyclable—and even when they are, they’re rarely disposed of properly? Talk about a turn-off.
I know it’s sad to imagine the day when you have to bid your go-to vibrator adieu, but most sex toys don’t last forever, and there’s no shame in thinking ahead. Why not stock up on eco-friendly sex toys—toys that use rechargeable batteries instead of disposable ones; toys that are made from recycled materials; toys that come in eco-friendly packaging—so you can enjoy your orgasms, free of concerns about how your actions are negatively impacting the environment?
Ahead, you’ll find a few sex toys that fit the bill. Mother Nature thanks you!
