The Green Party’s Bringing Sexy Back

People who want to do good for the earth and also do good for their partners can now bring pleasure to everyone by being “green” sex favors. Through TreeHugger.com you can buy everything from bamboo bed sheets to organic lubricant and “eco-undies.” Since shopping to save the planet is now trendy, having sex to clear your conscience is the ultimate show of being sexy and eco-friendly all at once. The U.S. company, Babeland which sells to Canadians via Babeland.com, just introduced an “Eco-Sexy Kit” featuring a phthalate-free vibrator, soy massage candle, a natural lubricant with no animal-testing or derivatives and condoms. Other ways of “greenwashing” the bedroom, according to TreeHugger and Greenpeace, include turning out the lights during love sessions, ensuring S&M paddles are made from sustainable harvested timber, using only organic massage oils and showering together to conserve water.
