Hey, you! Before you dive in, we want you to know that all products featured in Intrigue are independently selected by our editorial team just for you. Yes, you're *that* special. ;) But also know that when you shop, we may earn commission from links on this page.
When you’re chasing after a quick orgasm, sustainability might be the last thing on your mind. Afterall, your trusty vibe is meant to get you off, not protect the planet. But what if we told you that with the right purchase you can accomplish both?
As it turns out, inventors of some of the world’s leading sexual wellness brands have been placing eco-friendly vibes at the forefront of their latest designs. What were once AA and AAA battery-operated devices have now been replaced with USB chargers, making sure another alkaline battery never finds its way into a local landfill. (According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Americans buy 3 billion dry-cell batteries every year, and each person discards about eight of these batteries each year.) But it doesn’t stop there. Latest launches take environmental sustainability a step further by offering fair labor practices, biodegradable models, multi-purpose functionalities, and more to ensure each buyer an ethical purchase.
About 163 million adults in the U.S. over the age of 18 own a sex toy, according to a recent survey by Statista. By purchasing more eco-friendly models, buyers can help reduce the Earth's carbon footprint by lowering its imperishable waste, harmful gas emission, depletion of natural resources, and more.
Do the planet a favor this Earth Day weekend (April 22-23) by reducing waste, and reap the benefits of mind-blowing orgasms as a reward for introducing sustainable, buzzy friends into your bedside drawer.
