WHY AREN’T SEX TOYS NORMALLY SUSTAINABLE?

Most sex toys are made from plastics, silicone or rubber. These materials are chosen for their flexibility and body safety, but they come at a cost to the planet. They often contain harmful chemicals which damage the environment. Most plastics and synthetic rubbers are not biodegradable and end up in landfills, breaking down into toxic microplastics. Even materials labeled as recyclable usually aren’t due to poor recycling infrastructure. Additionally, many sex toys are battery-powered. Although batteries are mostly recyclable, few are disposed of correctly and often end up in landfills. To explore the environmental impact of similar materials associated with sexuality, read our article An Exploration of Latex. Sustainability, Sex, and Controversy.

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?

Making more eco-friendly choices in your intimate life is easier than you might think. Start by opting for sex toys made from sustainable materials, such as medical-grade silicone, glass, or stainless steel, which are safer for both your body and the planet. Also, remember that rechargeable toys are better than battery-powered ones. Finally, choose brands that use minimal and recyclable materials- it’s good to look at their packaging. By making these conscious choices you can enjoy your pleasure while supporting a healthier planet.
