Eco-friendly sex toys aim to reduce their environmental impact in some way by not contributing to pollution.
Instead of the usual plastic that takes hundreds of years to degrade, eco-friendly sex toys and their packaging are usually made from materials that can be recycled.
So, about the toys you use for sex … they’re typically made of rubber and plastic that emit greenhouse gases when burned or decomposed.
Currently, the global sex toy market is over $30 billion. If you do the math, that’s tons and tons of harmful waste accumulation on land and in the sea.
Thankfully, eco-friendly materials such as natural rubber and steel have the lengthy capacity to be recycled and used.
Therefore, by going green, the weighty carbon footprint that surrounds sex toys is becoming significantly lower.
Did you know that sex toys are made of ABS-containing plastic (very hard to recycle)? They may break and get worn in time resulting in replacements. But plastics tend to stick around like bad memories, threatening life and scattering environmental poison.
By choosing eco-friendly sex toys, you’re not just being conscious of your wallet but also of Mother Nature.
Think about it, eco-friendly goods biodegrade, can be recycled fully and used again … unlike the plasticky items in your pantry.
Want to know another reason why choosing sustainable sex toys is smart? Longevity – (pardon the pun) lasting much, much longer than your dalliance at the moment, for sure.
Eco-friendly materials such as recycled silicone and stainless steel are designed to be durable. Yes, they’re a lot stronger than their traditional rubber and plastic counterparts.
This means you can explore all the ways of sexual pleasure while reducing waste and keeping to your budget (no frequent replacement). It’s a good deal.
Companies that push for eco-friendly sex toys contribute to a more conscious and responsible industry. How so? Not only do they promote and encourage just business practices, but they also ensure ethical sourcing of materials.
Do you think that’s good? More than good actually, it’s great. From upholding rights to health and safety, your favourite sustainable sex toys go through each business supply chain point, ethically.
Basically, these megacorps are not just earning money … they’re also putting yours, the workers, the consumers and the planet at their utmost priority.
Okay, you love adventurous sex … that’s cool. But did you know that many old-school sex toys contain harmful chemicals such as phthalates?
Imagine, getting close to that thing without knowing how detrimental it could be to your health in the long run? Would you still love crazy sex all the same? I don’t think so.
Fortunately, eco-friendly sex toys are not putting a stop to your sex drive. They’re made of body-friendly materials that you can use without worrying about your safety and health.

As we rely on natural extracts to produce sustainable sex toys, the production leaves an environmental footprint. However, with responsible sourcing, we can make sure that raw materials are acquired with care for our dame nature.
Buying eco-friendly sex toys should be a matter of sustainability. And the first step to reaching that goal is changing one’s purchasing behaviour.
Green minds think; responsible sourcing of materials. This is a powerful means to reduce carbon and energy consumption … and make a positive impact on the environment.
You read that right … rechargeable batteries should be on your things-to-look-for list for sustainable sex toys.
The thing that many people don’t know about is that rechargeable batteries are an eco-friendly solution … in what way? Simple, it reduces battery waste.
Rechargeable batteries can replace thousands of toxic single batteries, sucking Mother Nature bone dry. This means you have a lesser hand on the growing greenhouse gases and their global warming impact.
Even better, it’s good for your wallet too.
So, what’s the point of energy efficiency? It matters on two fronts. Eco-friendly speaking, it can lessen the amount of energy consumed and the fossil fuel that pumps the greenhouse gases out.
Economic-wise, you’re helping the demand meet the supply. You can help create jobs and stabilize extremely volatile prices.
Thus, when you’re buying sustainable sex toys, it only makes sense that you think of these things before purchasing.
After all, you just don’t want to enjoy sexual pleasures. As an earthling, you want to buy eco-friendly sex toys that don’t mess with the planet.
Wondering why you should look for eco-friendly sex toys that are durable? While durability gets pricey, it makes for a great investment (in the long run).
If a product is robust, this means the materials used are also better. They create less waste and even lesser environmental impact.
Moreover, durable products are not prone to frequent breakages that result in replacements and repairs. Eventually, the expenses quickly pile up, making it more costly.
Yes, help the planet … and help your wallet too.
Since you’re bent on being green, you shouldn’t just think of the eco-friendly sex toy you’re buying. Think of the packaging to. Is it eco-friendly?
Eco-friendly packaging is made from recycled materials. Therefore, by choosing a biodegradable wrapping, you can help reduce the production waste.
In addition, the production process becomes more efficient. You’re indirectly making a stand for companies to save our natural resources and reduce their negative environmental impact.
All these because you’re opting for recyclable packaging.
Ethical production is not just about creating sustainable sex toys but prioritising the interests of all parties involved (consumers, communities and earth). That said, wouldn’t you want to support businesses that practice ethical production?
Eco-friendly sex toys that have a lingering positive impact on the environment and communities are products of ethical manufacturing.
In short, by choosing products that are ethically produced, you are causing companies to think in an ethically conscious way.
Thanks to your ethical consumerism, they’ll be forced to pay attention and embrace positive supply chain processes.
In today’s world where going green is becoming sexy, it is pivotal to consider the environmental bearing of our everyday actions. Yes, that includes your bedroom whoopees.
Eco-friendly sex toys give you an opportunity to make your ecological intentions known … even behind closed doors.
You can show love for both the planet and have the upmost pleasure. All you need to do is support sustainable sex toys and companies that adopt ethical practices.
Tons of people are already making the conscious choice to get rid of the plastics in their lives.
So, why not rally behind them and explore the clean, green and safe world of eco-friendly sex toys?
