Go Green - would EF consider a recycling program?

(posted in the right forum this time! )

I don't mean trading/swapping/gifti ng or any of that. I mean sending them to a place where they'll be melted down and repurposed.

Yes, most towns have a recycling program in place, but I have several issues:

1) My town is specific about what number plastics they recycle. None of the toys I've purchased to date have been marked with a number so they wouldn't be accepted.

2) Silicone is a type of rubber. The recycling truck where I live does not collect rubber items, those have to be taken, in person, to the recycling center. (There's a fee for tires, wonder what they'd charge for dildos? )

3) I know the guy who picks up the recycling in my neighborhood. Waving hello and chatting with him would be extremely awkward if I knew he'd just recycled a glass toy along with the pickle jars and soda bottles. That's more info than my neighbors need to know about me.

I was just about to make a post about this! Good thing I did a search first. I'm sad to see that this has been here for a week and has gone without any responses...

I would LOVE to see EF start up a recycling program. I recently sent in a whole bunch of toys to a recycling program, but I'd much rather have remained "loyal" to EF. This is where I do all my toy shopping. It'd be great to be able to recycle them with EF as well!

Is there any talk of something like this being in the works?

I personally don't see it happening.

Is it a toy recycling program that you used?

May I ask what recycling program you currently use?

While ideally I would like Eden to be my one-stop for all things sexy, if another program exists I'm not against checking it out.

DeliciousSurprise, there really haven't been any *recent* discussions of this. I certainly feel that it's worth mentioning. Perhaps if people continue to show interest EF might seriously consider adding a recycling program or partnering with an existing one!

At any rate! I sent my toys to this program: link

However...They're supposed to give you a $10 credit for each box of toys you send in...and I haven't received anything at all, after a month or so. I'm going to be contacting them soon to see what's going on with that. I don't really need to extra incentive to want to recycle, but I was looking forward to that little bonus!

There's also this one, but...they don't seem to have their stuff together either. For example, they mention collection centers on their site, but they fail to provide locations for those anywhere as far as I could tell. Bummer!

Cute website, but...largely uninformative.

Thanks for the links. The first might be worth checking out, though truth be told the $10 credit would likely go unused since I like shopping here on EF.

I'd seen the second site you linked before, and it still looks like they haven't actually managed to get their business up and running. Pity, cause it would have been perfect.

Of course, I hold out hope that EF will come to the recycling rescue.

I didn't mean to imply this ought not be discussed; I linked to the page because there've been a lot of pros and cons to Eden having their own recycling program brought up in those threads that would be useful to you if you really wanted to make a push for it. In one of those threads there's also a link to other programs that accept products.

Thanks for linking the program you used. It would be great if Eden did something like this.

I agree. Even if I didn't get a credit for it, I would still like to recycle the toys that I have that are just irritating and taking up space.

I really wish EF had a recycling program, too! I've recently been trying to find some way to recycle my old toys, but none of the sites I've seen look reliable.

Like Sir said, even if we didn't get credit for it I'd still be glad to be rid of them and not have them in a landfill somewhere!

Just to update everyone, I did end up receiving the credit from ScarletGirl. I plan on using it eventually, but...I'm with all of you. I'm happy the toys are being recycled! And I'd much rather give my money and my support to EF.
