The Goddess of Earth, Gaia, has branched out her Mother Earthly horizons to bless us with something we’ve all been calling out for; eco-friendly sex toys.
“The world’s first biodegradable vibrator” is a welcome breath of fresh air. It’s plusher than the leafy notes of Will Young’s Pop Idol breakout banger, “Evergreen”. Cleverly compounded using a starch-based bioplastic, Blush Novelties have concocted two orgasmic vibrators (one being a bullet) using significantly less energy and greenhouse gases than you’ll find involved in the production of other sex toys. For those trying to reduce their carbon footprint, you no longer need to sacrifice your orgasms; you can now recycle them. Hallelujah.
When 2 Become 1
But, how do you know if this toy is for you? The eco-friendly appeal only goes so far when you’re using it to get you off…BUT what about if we told you that the Goddess Gaia is here for you and only you. Using a somewhat traditional dial control, you can adjust the vibrators intensity to the exact speed you prefer. You can start low and slowly twist it stronger, inline with your orgasm. In fact, you only need to twist the lid in one direction to turn on and the other to turn off. The bullet is even simpler, with a button on the lid that you press once to turn on and once to turn off; there is only one singular speed setting for this toy.
So, they’re fairly quiet, super simple to use and even better, they’re cheap! This means that if you’re new at the whole sex toy thing and not sure really where to start, the vibrator or bullet from the Gaia set could be your gateway toy. Take the vibe, for instance, it’s rounded, tapered tip means it’s comfortable and precise. Perfect for internal (vaginally – not anally) or external use, the longer shaft makes it easy to hold. Meanwhile, the bullet functions in the same way as the larger vibrator, but is much smaller and designed for clitoral (or nipple) use.
How to recycle?
As we mentioned above, both the Gaia vibes are fabulously recyclable. But how does one go about this? Can you take them back to us? Do you throw them into your cabbage patch with your used teabags? Can you mash the stalks into a delicious vegan curry paste? We are afraid; the answers to these is a firm no.
Yet, they are easily recyclable, it says so on the box in a large(ish) font. All you need to do is take it to your local commercial composting centre and job done. Bravo!
