San Francisco Declared “Greenest City in North America” and We’re Here to Help!
Reuters reports that San Francisco is the most eco-friendly city in North America, according to a survey that Siemens Corp. commissioned. And earlier this year, the Daily Beast this year San Francisco among the top three.
If sustainable sex were a criteria, San Francisco would be even further ahead the pack. Good Vibrations was the first company in the U.S. to research the issue of items containing phthalates (the chemical softeners that raised concerns about toxicity in plastics) and look for safer alternatives. We were also the first to discontinue these products and encouraged their manufacturers to do the same.
Dr. Carol Queen, our very own Staff Sexologist and company spokesperson explains the importance of greening the bedroom: “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. Our wellbeing and that of the earth are connected, so consider where you can go ecorotic®
Our earth-friendly ecorotic® collection offers all-natural and organic products, as well as longer lasting items that have less environmental impact, such as toys made from superior materials and rechargeable vibes. For example:
- Lubricants made from natural and/or organic ingredients that are produced in the United States, rather than overseas, thereby reducing their carbon footprints
- Rechargeable battery vibrators don’t use disposable batteries, and are more durable and long-lasting
- Long-lasting materials: glass, sustainably harvested wood, metal, or silicone products can last a lifetime and are less likely to end up in landfill, and many of these items are themselves recyclable
- In addition to being more durable, high-grade, non-permeable materials are much safer for your body and more natural than most plastics and composites
