    When it comes to daily life, most of us have ditched plastic water bottles, cut back on red meat and even started buying your clothes from ethical clothing brands (and hey, clothes rentals!). But when it comes to our sex life, we haven’t quite mastered the eco-friendly sex toys swaps – and we really need to.

    Condom wrappers, lube stored in plastic bottles and those plastic-covered little gadgets that give us so much on-demand pleasure are actually harming the environment, due to plastic’s inability to decompose, thus leading to landfill pile-ups and polluted seas.

But as we progress towards both a greener and cleaner way of life, so does the sex toy industry and its producing alternative eco-friendly sex toys substitutes which emit less harmful emissions into our ecosystem.

    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 solar-operated vibrators. Take a look…
