7. The Bio-degradable Sex Friend

There is very little regulation when it comes to the manufacturing of your favorite sex toy.

And the manufacturers are using plenty of non-biodegradable plastic containing PVC or polyvinyl chloride.

This is not only bad for the environment – the other scary element is that leached phthalates that are used in vibrators, dildos and other sex toys can actually be absorbed by delicate vaginal and anal tissue.2

These have been indicated as being a culprit in causing all sorts of health issues, reproductive problems and the like.

Phthalates have been banned from being used in kids toys in some places because of the potential risk.

Look out for the PVC sex toy options before you rush out and buy your next one, or even better – go for glass.

Condoms Are King

@NinjaBudgie well actually disposing of a condom in a rubbish bin is a lot more Eco-friendly than ditching it in a field or bush..... Even taking landfill and incineration into account

Hi NinjaBudgie, - here's some info on the eco-friendly disposal of condoms http://goaskalice.columbia.edu/environmentally-friendly-condom-disposal

I hesitate to ask but... 1. How does one dispose of a condom earth-friendly (assuming you don't want to re-use it!) 2. What material (other than glass) are earth-friendly "friends" made from? More dear? P.S. that pic is seriously disturbing!
