Recyclable Sex Toys
We all want more heat in the bedroom – the hotter the better! But the same can’t be said for our planet. Having an eco-friendly sex life is simple when you shop for adult toys online with passionbugs. Our greener options empower you to indulge in your desires without worrying about your sexual carbon footprint.
One quick win is choosing sex toys made from recyclable materials such as glass and metal. These can often be recycled at the kerbside along with your bottles and tins. If you want to spare any potential blushes, they can also be disposed of at many local recycling centres.
Did you know that glass and metal sex toys have a hidden dimension? Both types can be heated up using hot water or cooled down in the fridge to provide some serious alternative excitement. Your plastic dildos can’t do that!
When cared for properly, metal and glass sex toys last a lifetime. They’re long-lasting, kinder to the environment and ultra-arousing – what’s not to love? Choose a recyclable sex toy and do your bit for both the planet and your sex life.
Wooden Sex Toys
Wooden sex toys are the ideal choice for anyone trying to lead a more sustainable lifestyle. Our range of Lusthoiz wooden dildos, butt plugs and anal chains are all made from sustainable sources without the use of pollutants. They’re 100% vegan and free from plastics, making them completely body safe. Even the paint finishes are free from harmful substances – quite relevant when you consider where you’ll be putting these intimate toys.
It’s not just their green points that make wooden sex toys so appealing. The Lusthoiz collection are all handmade so each sex toy is unique and just for you. Wood naturally warms as you play, making these sex toys feel exceptionally natural to use. Wood is also a rigid material so it’s perfect for precise stimulation of those sweet spots that are sometimes difficult to reach.
You don’t have to be an eco-warrior to buy wooden sex toys. The advantages of these tactile toys are there to be used and abused by us all! Besides, there’s no harm in feeling a little smug knowing that you’re doing your bit in super sexy style.
Biodegradable Sex Toys
As with any product, the production and disposal of sex toys has consequences for the world around us. So, as more of us venture forth and discover the delights of adult toys, let’s work to consider and actively reduce our environmental impact. After all, no one wants a future where rampant rabbits are filling up landfills, or condoms are enjoying adventures in our oceans.
Achieving a sustainable sex life is simple when you swap plastic for biodegradable. Any sex toy or condom made from a biodegradable material can be disposed of on the compost heap. If you don’t have a compost heap, that’s okay! You’re still earning eco-warrior points by choosing biodegradable toys over plastic. Gaia vibrators, for example, are made from a plant-based bioplastic that uses less energy during its manufacturing process and results in fewer greenhouse gases.
Gaia vibrators and Glyde vegan condoms naturally break down over time so, even if they end up in landfill, they won’t be leaking nasty substances into the environment. All the thrills of your everyday sex toys and condoms, without losing sleep about melting ice caps.
Tips for a Sustainable Sex Life
You’ve swapped your single-use coffee cup for a reusable one and you’ve got a cupboard full of bags for life, but what about your sex life? Nobody should feel guilty about masturbation, their sex life or the adult toys they use, so here are a few tips for being greener in the bedroom:
- Try alternatives to the trusty, plastic sex toys you’re used to. Glass, metal and wooden adult toys are far less harmful to the planet and are body-safe too.
- Choose rechargeable sex toys over their battery powered equivalents.
- Where possible, opt for biodegradable condoms such as those in the Glyde range.
- Look for lubricants that are organic, don’t contain parabens and come in recyclable bottles. Ultimate Earth are a great choice, plus they’re also vegan.
- Invest in high quality adult toys that will last longer than those designed for single-use thrills.
- Take care of your sex toys and prolong their lifespan by investing in an eco-friendly adult toy cleaner.
- Keep an eye out for sex toys that are made in your home country as these can naturally have a lower carbon footprint.
