I love sex toys and I love the earth and these two things do not need to be mutually exclusive. Yes, there are many sex toys made out there on the cheaps. Unfortunately, the attraction for many people to buy themselves a first toy is that they can find them reasonably priced. But if you have a commitment to being earth friendly and/or you already know that you are a sex toy devotee, then spend a tiny bit more cash to keep things green in the bedroom. This means that the toys are made of either eco-friendly materials or their power source is renewable. You’ll be surprised at all of the options now at a reasonable price. Here are a few options…
No-Battery Required Vibes
This includes plug in toys that use very little electricity, vibes you can plug into your car to charge or even solar vibrators. No need to stock pesky batteries any more.

The wave of glass and metal dildos in the last few years has also been one that not only pays attention to beauty but to the environment as well. They come in a plethora of shapes and colors too.

Recently, lubes made of natural products are growing. Sex product makers are starting to get involved in producing products that are good for our bodies. Organic lube companies brag that they have less sugar in them, which can cause yeast infections. That’s a good thing for all of you yeasty chicks out there. Plus it’s just nice to know that you are using something that can only be good for your body.
