It’s Great to Be Green: 10 Eco-Friendly Sex Toys & Productsby Lilit Marcus on April 30, 2013
How does a sex toy company pull off a really great April Fool’s Day prank? For Swedish “pleasure object” company Lelo, the answer was “create an eco-friendly sex toy.” The joke turned out to be on them, though. The fake product, Gasm, became hugely popular, even though it didn’t exist, and Lelo then had to get to work actually creating the product. Although the Gasm is still a work in progress, people who want to get their green freak on don’t need to wait – there are plenty of companies out there who are making eco-friendly products for the bedroom.
These condoms are the only ones in the world certified as Cruelty-Free. They’re made from a plant-based rubber and are therefore completely vegan, and they’re also a good option for people with some kinds of Latex allergies. Glyde also wants you to know that the workers who make the condoms are paid a fair living wage, so save your guilt for your sex life.
Not only does this dildo change temperature for people who like it hotter or colder, it’s made from 100 percent silicone and has the Green America stamp of approval.
These whips are made out of recycled rubber products and then riveted and woven together. The product’s official slogan is “Be naughty to each other, but nice to the environment!” We couldn’t have said it better.
You may love organic beauty products, but moisturizer isn’t the only thing you put on your skin. These paraben and glycerin-free lubes are vegan and are made with products like aloe, hibiscus, and green tea. Bonus points: they soothe any rough skin you might have from that whip we just showed you.
When you purchase this eco-friendly silicon butt plug, six percent of the profits will go toward a green charity like PETA or Vegan Outreach.
Why choose painful metal handcuffs when you can opt for this spandex-and-neoprene pair that also happens to be machine washable? Your days of misplacing the key are officially over.
Good Clean Love’s “body candy” is a multifunctional product: they’re candles, but once they melt down they become sensual body lotions and oils that are totally safe to eat. Recycle and reuse in one step.
Okay, this isn’t a sex toy. But it is definitely a sexy toy, or at least a hilarious bachelor/bachelorette party gift.
If you’re just getting started in the world of green sex, let Babeland help set you up with this kit, which contains a solar-rechargable vibrator, organic lube, and eco-friendly condoms.
What’s the point in having green sex toys if you put a bunch of chemicals on them during the cleaning process? Lelo is on the case with their antibacterial sex toy cleaner that works on rubber, latex, plastic, and silicone.
