What better way to celebrate Earth Day today than to experience those earthly delights that come from safe, environmentally friendly sex toys? Just remember what eco-qualities to look for when choosing your party stick:
- Safe materials: You want toys made from non-toxic, non-porous, hypoallergenic, medical-grade, pure materials. Avoid phthalates at all costs (those plastic softeners that make a toy wreak like a vinyl shower curtain or a new car). And just because the packaging mentions silicone doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a bunch of toxic additives. Look for toys made from 100% silicone, surgical steel, safe metal, solid glass, hard plastic like acrylic, or wood.
- Rechargeability: Consider all the batteries you’ll never have to use and throw away when you invest in a rechargeable toy, like Fun Factory’s Delight. Even better: the self-powered, hand-cracked Earth Angel vibe!
- Long-lasting quality: It’s worth investing in high-quality, perhaps slightly pricier items, because they’ll last much longer (which means fewer toys in landfills ultimately). The longer the warranty, the better. Jimmyjane offers a three-year warranty on their items (that’s an eternity in sex toy years!). Their Little line is also the only everlasting vibrator because of its patented replaceable motor system.
- Reputable manufacturers: In addition to Jimmyjane items, check out toys made by Lelo, Fun Factory, Tantus, and Vixen Creations, to name a few.
