Just in case you aren’t anxious enough about all the chemicals that you consume on a daily basis, there is now a new wave of ‘going green’ that has caught our attention. This trend is not just better for the environment, but it’s better for you in the bedroom as well! Hold onto your panties because today we’re talking about eco-friendly sex!
So let’s get physical…er technical! We’ve listed seven green, Eco18-approved products below that will green your ‘gasm and leave you coming back for more. Happy browsing!
LELO – Gigi 2
Crowned as one of the ‘World’s Bestselling G-Spot Vibrators,’ this sculpted little piece of magic has been given the eco-friendly tick of approval. Not only is it rechargeable, but the Gigi 2 is phthalate-free and is made entirely in-house, which means that Lelo products are environmentally friendly by complying with the standards of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment as well as Restriction Of Hazardous Substances. Lastly, the Gigi 2 is made using body-safe silicon.
As well as being good to the environment, you’ll also be pleased to know that the Gigi 2 has 8 vibration patterns with adjustable speeds and is also 100% waterproof. Bubble bath anyone?
For all you hard-core vegans out there, you can sleep well (or not at all!), knowing that Glyde is the world’s first vegan and fair trade condom. Made with a proprietary plant-based formula of thistle extract and natural rubber latex, Glyde Condoms are free from additives including petro-chemicals, parabens, casein and spermicides. Glyde condoms are also proud to be certified by The Vegan Society, Ethiquette and PETA’s Caring Consumer Program.
The Solar Bullet
The Solar Bullet boasts that you can, “get off on saving the planet,” with this vibrator! Simply expose the Solar Bullet to the sun for eight hours to provide an hour of blissful two-speed vibration. Headed on a camping trip? No need for a power outlet to get your tent a rockin’! Even the box is environmentally responsible as it’s printed according to Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standards! Did you hear that, Smokey?
Good Clean Love
Good Clean Love offers all-natural, organic intimacy products that are made from the highest quality ingredients and recyclable packaging materials available. The company believes that by helping women to create and sustain strong families, they make the world a more loving place. We couldn’t agree more! If you enjoy saving the planet AND the occasional Chai latte, Good Clean Love has a product for you. Their Vanilla Chai Body Candy blends the erotic comforting creamy flavors and aphrodisiac Middle Eastern species to create a sweet and spicy kiss that will blow your mind. Considered an ‘oral pleasure balm,’ you can use this product as a topping for all of your lover’s most kissable spots. After using this product, you’ll never drink a Vanilla Chai Latte the same again!
Made entirely from sugar and sugar derivative free (glycerin), and sparse amounts of other safe ingredients, Sliquid is the cleanest, most natural lubricant on the market. 13 products make up the Sliquid Naturals line, with Sliquid H20 boasting the simplest, purest water based formulation made with only 5 ingredients. Sliquid also has a line of organic products, which is basically the Natural line infused with Certified Organic Botanicals like hibiscus, green tea, flax, and aloe vera. Yum! If that’s not enough, Sliquid also uses the highest amount of post consumer recycled materials possible in their packaging! Not to mention, it’s fun to say!
Committed to supporting a healthy, playful and intelligent enjoyment of sexuality, Jimmyjane is a design-centric brand that designs products and experiences to provide pleasure and strengthen connection and creative provocative possibility. Jimmyjane pays attention to the details–and it shows. Our favorite part of their products (besides the obvious)? Their revolutionary vibrators are made with medical-grade, platinum silicone and stainless steel which means that they are body-safe and phthalate-free. Take a look at the Jimmyjane FORM 2, one of their best sellers. The compact design offers more intense vibrations than any other product of its size–not to mention the flexible ‘ears’ that are each internally powered for dynamic stimulation. Jimmyjane refers to the FORM 2 as ‘Sensation in Stereo,’ and we could not agree more! Crank up the music and get to work on making your own. 😉
Are you looking for a way to spice things up in the bedroom that doesn’t include a vibrating toy? You’re going to want to try Jimmyjane’s AFTERGLOW Natural Massage Oil Candle. Yes, you read that correctly–it’s a candle that you can use as massage oil, a two-fer if you will that sets the mood while getting you INTO the mood. The AFTERGLOW candle is also body-safe and paraben-free with no phthalates, sulfates, petrochemicals, animal products or testing. Are you wondering how pouring hot wax over your body is enjoyable? The ‘wax’ is actually a mixture of Jojoba, Shea butter, Vitamin E, Soy, and Aloe that liquefies into a luxuriant massage oil at body temperature. We’re not done. Even the candle bit is eco-friendly as it’s paraffin-free and lead-free natural cotton wick burns cleanly. We recommend the Bourbon scent! (P.S. This candle was featured on the hit series, Girls!)
Whether you choose to simply switch to a more eco-friendly condom, or if you are up for experimenting with a new green toy, we applaud your decision to reevaluate the products that you are putting on, around, and IN your body. Just remember to stay safe!
