Double the Pleasure: Recycle Your Old Sex Toys

| Tuesday August 25th, 2009 | 18 Comments

dildobin_bigStop filling up your garbage can with cheaply made vibrators. No more broken dildos piling up in landfill. Now you can recycle your old sex toys!

Yes, that’s recycle, not reuse, which is where my mind initially jumped.

According to the Recycle my Sex Toy site: “Finally, there’s an environmentally friendly way to dispose of used or broken vibrators, dildos, plugs, or any other sex toy you may have. Our Sex Toy Recycling program offers you a way to recycle sex toys that you no longer want or use.”

How does it work? Just mail your used toys to the warehouse where they’ll be cleaned, disassembled and sent to recycling facilities where the rubber, silicone, hard plastics, metal, e-waste and motors can be processed for reuse. And in return, you get a $10 gift card to use at Dream Scapes of one of their affiliate partners.

At first I thought this was a bit of a greenwashing scam, one company trying to stand out from the sex toy market with a green angle. However, they are a certified green business. And as far as I can tell, seem pretty legit. Why not bring a sustainable vibe to, uh, vibes.

For some more green masturbation ideas, check out this other sex toy recycling site, where they make such eco-friendly suggestions such as “Fruits and vegetables like bananas and cucumbers make a simple and inexpensive substitute for a dildo. Many common items like electric toothbrushes or hairbrush handles can also  be used for pleasure.”

Hey, as the website says, “Going green has never been this much fun!” I believe it.

    I see this has enhancing the fantasy–I mean you and your recycled piece-could pretend it came from someone you dream about–Just hope later they don’t publish a list of past contributors-and you figure you are using something Rush Limbaugh used–might swear off pleasure toys for a while after that.

    It's worthwhile to make sure the sex toys you buy are phthalate free, look for phthalate free on labels and product descriptions. Many cheap soft, jelly like toys still contain this nasty chemical. and they are recyclable.
