Going eco "all the way!" 

Wanna take your eco-friendly obsession "all the way?" I recently stumbled on a concept that totally blew my mind!


I was chatting with a friend and he started telling me that he and his girlfriend had made a pact to have an eco-friendly sex life. "Wait. HOLD ON!"  I said, flustered and confused. "What’s so eco-dangerous about sex?"


Apparently a lot.


Between fossil fuel based lubes and toxic sex toys, it would seem that greening up your sex life has a lot of positive potential. Luckily for all of us, companies from all around the world are responding to this eco-need by creating fun and innovative sex products. But where (or how) to start?

Try a vegan or organic lubricant, such as the full line by yesyesyes.org They boast that their lubes are good for you and good for the environment without sacrificing any performance quality.

As for Condoms? Here’s a fun factoid: the government of Brazil recently built a condom factory! What’s their aim? Using rubber from trees in the Amazon to slow down deforestation AND providing free condoms to Brazil’s citizens in an effort to combat HIV/AIDS.

Probably never thought you’d be donning tree pruning scraps when you wanted to settle in with your significant other, huh? Enter Enamore. A trendy fashion company that recently introduced a line of lingerie. Their intimates are made of organic hemp, recycled fabrics and, you guessed it, tree pruning scraps!

Also worth scoping out is Earth Erotics, an online company focusing on environmentally friendly sex, has compiled an entire internet boutique chocked full of everything from organic cotton linens to animal shaped vibrators.

Have a fun time going all the way… green that is!
