Sustainable sex toys: the best to buy now

Glass, recycled-ocean plastic, and vegan lube, oh my...

When it comes to daily life, most of you have ditched plastic water bottles, started buying your clothes from ethical clothing brands, and started stocking your bathroom cabinets with refillable beauty products. But when it comes to your sex lives, you likely haven't quite swapped out plastic options for sustainable sex toys. Yet.

But you should be. Condom wrappers, lube stored in plastic bottles, and the plastic-covered gadgets that offer on-demand pleasure are harming the environment. Yep, you guessed it - your sex toys are leading to landfill pile-ups and polluted seas.

Making the switch from something you’ve found to be an essential part of your bedside table to a new era of sex toys can be quite the leap. But as we progress towards both a greener and cleaner way of life, so does the sex toy industry by producing alternative eco-friendly sex toy substitutes.

If you’re intrigued but stumped on where to find the best sex toys for women that are also eco-friendly, we’ve compiled a list from organic and very-edible vegan lube to hot or cold-temp glass dildos and even nature-inspired vibrators. Take a look… and do read our guide to tantric sex, while you're at it.
