In honor of Earth Day, I contacted Babeland to do a green sex-toy giveaway, and to help throw some spice into the anniversary and spread some love. Cause that's how I roll.
What's a Babeland? It's a boutique retailer of high-quality sex toys and accessories with a mission to provide information and encouragement to people who want to explore their sexuality.
All this month, Babeland is donating 20% of sales of eco-friendly sex toys to Grist.org, the non-profit environmental news site.
Here are some of their tips on how to be eco-friendly in the bedroom:
*Save batteries from the landfill and use rechargeable toys. Better yet, try a Solar Vibe or the Earth Angel, which has a hand-crank.
*Know what's in your sex toys - phthalates are plasticizing chemicals used in PVC and soft plastic sex toys and should be avoided, especially in your nether-regions. All of Babeland's toys are phthalate-free.
*Choose lotions, oils and lubes made from organic, natural ingredients.
*Choose sex toys made from renewable resources that are also easily recycled: stainless steel, glass and wood. Or cucumbers, carrots, eggplant, etc.
*Turn off the lights! Light the room with a Babeland massage candle instead - it is soy based, smells great and becomes a silky massage oil.
What's the giveaway? We're giving away a solar powered vibrator. That's right! You can win your very own Solar Bullet and get off (literally) on saving the planet.
Eight hours of exposure to sunshine provides one hour of blissful two-speed vibration. It also makes a perfect gift for your favorite tree-hugging pleasure-seeker, or bring it on your next camping trip. To top it all off, the box is printed to environmentally responsible Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standards.
How to enter: I know some of you won't want to enter this giveaway because you prefer to be anonymous. Well, I've got a solution for you - pick a name of a Bond girl as your nom de plume (er keyboard) like Pussy Galore or Honey Ryder. You can also use the Bond Girl Name Generator. Gents (and ladies) who want to enter can use the Porn Star Name Generator. To enter, add your "name" as a comment to this post (and remember what it is!). You have until midnight PST, Sunday, April 25th, to enter.
The teeny tiny print: I was in no way compensated for this giveaway, I'm just hosting some Earth Day lovin.
