This spring, Good Vibrations’ customers can show their support for “going green” by making a financial gift to the Global Justice Ecology Project at the time of their Good Vibrations purchase. The Global Justice Ecology Project raises awareness about the dangers of global warming and deforestation around the world through direct action, and advocates for climate justice, protection of native forests, and the rights of the indigenous peoples of the South American forested communities. Donations are accepted at all Good Vibrations’ checkout counters and on the web.
Says Good Vibrations’ COO, Jackie Strano, “For over three decades, Good Vibrations has been giving back to the community by actively participating in various causes. Our GiVe campaign(s) are a way for us to formally mobilize our creativity, enthusiasm, and energies towards causes we believe in. We are proud to partner with the Global Justice Ecology Project and bring attention to important environmental issues that affect all of us.”
The GV-GJEP nonprofit partnership highlights Good Vibrations’ commitment to raising awareness about the positive environmental impact of greening one’s sex life with the types of sustainable sensual products carried in their Ecorotic line.
“Environmental action can begin at home, in the bedroom” says Dr. Carol Queen, Good Vibrations’ staff Sexologist and company spokesperson. “Sex is part of our lives, so any issue that concerns us out of the bedroom has implications inside it: if we recycle, buy local produce, watch our carbon use, and think ecologically in other ways, it makes sense to do the same when we make sexual choices.”
“What makes sex green?” expounds Dr. Queen, “In the first place, most people have sex in ways that use the earth’s resources lightly, with a way smaller carbon footprint than taking a drive.”
Good Vibrations earth-friendly Ecorotic collection features all-natural and organic products, as well as items that have less environmental impact, such as toys made from superior, longer-lasting materials and rechargeable vibes. Many sex toys contain phthalates, a plastic softener, which have been linked to cancer and damaging sperm. In 2007, Good Vibrations eliminated all phthalates-containing products from their inventory. Customers can rest assured that all Good Vibrations Ecorotic products are safe and phthalates-free. By featuring lubes and toys manufactured from natural, vegan and/or sustainable materials and ingredients, Good Vibrations offers its customers healthy products that are as good for the planet as they are for their sex life.
Good Vibrations was founded with a culture of good work ethics and socially-conscious business practices. From vendors with fair labor practices to lubes and toys made with natural or vegan ingredients, Good Vibrations hopes to pass to their customers, healthy products that are as good for the planet as they are for your sex life.
From the bedroom to the forests, celebrate spring and going green with Good Vibrations.
For over 30 years Good Vibrations has partnered with hundreds of local and national non-profit organizations through donations, advertising and sponsorship. GV is proud to provide much need support for local and global non-profit organizations such as women’s shelters, HIV/AIDS research, art programs, LGBT benefits, Breast Cancer awareness and much more.
