WHAT MAKES AN ECO FRIENDLY SEX TOY?
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.
REASONS TO CHOOSE SUSTAINABLE VIBRATORS AND SEX TOYS?
- Make pleasure sustainable and help the planet by buying eco friendly sex toys that are biodegradable or recyclable.
- Avoid toxic compounds like phthalates that can leach into groundwater and harm the body and environment.
- Reduce the amount of plastic and batteries that end up in landfills.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING EARTH FRIENDLY BEDROOM TOYS?
- Silicone toys. Choose silicone toys and vibrators instead of toys made from plastic. Also look for “phthalate free” on the label.
- Recyclable parts and packaging. Packaging should be reusable or recyclable.
- Rechargeable batteries. Go for rechargeable instead of single-use batteries.
- Durable construction. Choose durable sex toys that last a long time.
