Pssst...want this information in a watchable, video-format instead!? Check out our YouTube video down below!

So what really defines a toy as being “eco-friendly”? Well, there are several factors to consider. Most of the time though, it comes down to cutting down on overall waste. By opting for toys that are more long-lasting, you won’t have to replace them as often and not as many toys end up sitting in the landfill!

Metal & Glass Toys

Some toy materials are simply more sustainable than others. Toys made of metal or glass can be recycled properly and since they are non-porous and don’t break down; basically provide you with a toy for life!

Biodegradable Toys

Blush Novelties Gaia Eco Bullet Vibrator

Some newer toys, like the Womanizer Premium Eco and the Blush Gaia’s, are actually designed to be biodegradable; meaning that they can safely decompose when recycled. These toy materials are most often a bio-based plastic made from raw & renewable materials, which provides a better alternative to the commonly used ABS plastic.

Rechargeable Toys

Since batteries aren’t great for the environment, instead consider a rechargeable toy! Toys that are rechargeable can also be convenient and provide some other benefits too like higher quality motors.

Organic Lubes & Liquids

We’re not just talking about toys around here, because sex liquids count too! Some brands, such as Intimate Earth offer lubricants that are certified organic as well as vegan.

A popular option for many folks is a coconut-oil-based lube. However, just remember that since it is still oil-based, it will break down latex!

Reusable Health & Wellness

Fun Factory Fun Cup Menstrual Cup Kit Size B

For folks that menstruate, unfortunately, tampons & pads produce A LOT of waste; especially when considering how many just one person uses during one cycle. A more sustainable option is to use a reusable menstrual cup!

Although the Diva Cup™ was the OG contender, there are several others now that you may find to be shaped better for your body, more comfortable, a better size, etc.

Plastic-Free Packaging

Womanizer Premium Eco Bio-Based Clitoral Stimulator Pink

Be sure to look out for brands and/or products that use plastic-free packaging too!

Some brands even go above and beyond to contribute to a better tomorrow. For example, Womanizer also plants 1 tree for every Premium Eco (pictured above) that's sold, through a partnership with onetreeplanted.org.
