1. You probably recycle your metal, glass, paper and cardboard already, but if you're looking to extend your eco-warrior credentials to other areas of your life, then you can pick up some top tips from this guide to green sex toys.

    Recycle, Recycle, Recycle… Then Recycle Some More!

    In August 2007, Lovehoney set up the Rabbit Amnesty Sex Toy Recycling Scheme and since then, over 5 tonnes of used vibrators have been disposed of in an ethical and completely green way.

    So instead of throwing out your old rabbit and hoping that the bin men don't find it, send it in to us and we'll recycle it in a totally discreet and eco-friendly way. And in return for your brilliant earth-kind actions, you can get one of our top rated Jessica Rabbit Vibrators for just half the price!

    Bring the Outside, In

    Everyone likes a good frolic outside when the sun is shining and the flowers are in bloom and now there's no reason you can't bring a little of that natural goodness into your bedroom, especially when it comes to lubricants.

    Sliquid have recently developed an organic range of lubricants which don't contain glycerine, parabens, aspartame or petroleum and are completely 100% vegan. So not only are they body-friendly but they're Earth-friendly too - they even contain certified organic extracts!

    If that has piqued your interest, you may want to take a look at the Yes range of organic lubricants as well. These discreet little bottles of silicone, oil and water-based lube meet the Soil Association Organic Standard, are Vegetarian Society-approved and are made from all natural ingredients including hypoallergenic aloe vera.

    Sustain Your Pleasure!

    Battery operated sex toys have an active life from anywhere between 35 minutes to a few years. The internal parts work well in the beginning, but after repeated use the battery connectors start to wear down.

    With The Earth Angel Vibrator, you need never buy another battery again! This clever 100% eco-friendly sex toy works on wind-up power alone and will outlast any other sex toy you own!

    By twisting the base for just 4 minutes, you'll have half an hour of intensely stimulating, vibrating power! But if you're thinking that having to wind-up your favourite vibrator for 4 minutes before you actually get busy is too much like hard work, you'll be pleased to hear that it can also be charged up via USB too!

    Got Wood?

    We have. NobEssence wooden dildos we mean!

    These surprisingly smooth, splinter free sex toys are made of wood sourced from sustainable and responsibly managed forests. And if that isn't enough, they are also finished with a phthalate-free, odourless, colourless coating which forms an impermeable barrier to chemicals and bacteria.

    Available in several shapes and designs, there is a NobEssence wooden dildo for everyone! The Romp is ideal for prostate stimulation, whilst the Long Fling will without a doubt be your G-spot's new best friend!

    The fantastic TV show Generation Sex, which airs in October on Channel 5, recently came to Lovehoney HQ to talk to the team about all things eco-sex!

    From our Rabbit Amnesty Scheme to vegan-friendly sex toys, The Prof and Bonny gave some wonderful, in-depth information on exactly what you can do to help save the environment through having sex!

    Lovehoney turned to the sun for some rays of inspiration following the news that HomeSun will be giving away £1bn worth of solar panels for free! What would you do if you won some highly coveted solar panels? The Lovehoney team came up with the top 5 fun things we would do (and found a little gem amongst our thousands of products in doing so - hooray!):

    Condomi's Fruit CondomsIf you're planning on having sex for the first time, both you and your partner will need to know how to correctly put on a condom…

    The Earth Angel is the new eco-friendly sex toy that doesn't need need batteries - to get it going, you just have to wind it up. No batteries required.

    Four minutes of winding gets you half an hour of vibration - and a tired arm. Whether that's a fair pay-off for an orgasm that doesn't cost the Earth is open to debate.

    Carly has a video to show you how it works…

    Sensational Summer Sex Toys

    Summer is here! Well… kind of.

    In between the bursts of rain and the scorchingly hot sun, there are plenty of occasions to play and we're going to show you exactly how!

    Whether you already own these sex toys or are considering buying something new, don't do anything until you've read this brilliant guide on how to really heat things up this summer.

    If it's hot outside and you're stuck indoors, then pop a pack of Durex Play 2 in 1 Massage Melts in the fridge and get ready to really cool yourself down.

    These freezable disks look just like ice cubes but on contact with the skin, they melt into a body-safe, water-based lubricant that can be used absolutely anywhere! So indulge in a tingly cool shoulder massage or use them in a more intimate context.

    Rabbit Amnesty

    Slightly reddened cheeks and bashful glances all round here at Lovehoney after Observer scribbler Kathryn Flett wrote in her Sunday column

    "The planet will… be grateful for the revolutionary new Rabbit Amnesty. For every recycled Rabbit, Lovehoney pledges to donate £1 to the World Land Trust to support rainforest-protection projects. Safe sex? Cybersex? So Twentieth Century. If you're at it with a rabbit you can - smugly, modishly - enjoy guilt-free eco-sex, too."

    Always nice to get a mention in the Sunday broadsheets! Hurray…

    Well, I couldn't sleep this morning and so I decided to wake Shane up by burrowing down under the sheets and taking his limp cock in my mouth. It didn't stay its tender state for long. It neverd does, which is something that always turns me on even more. We ended up having sex in the shower as we decided that we did have to start getting ready for work afterall but that maybe we could compromise by combining two activities: making love and showering. Oh and of course it is much more eco-friendly to share a shower with a friend… ;-)


    Shane came in my mouth as I knelt in front of him to finish him off and I'm sorry to say that there was absolutely no hint of the taste of apple. :-(


    Despite the wonderful start to the day, the rest of it was pretty normal. Nice. But normal. :-)
