Recycle your toys - Re-Vibe Program

Obscura Obscura
Has anyone used the Re-Vibe program? I'm bringing this up because I know that many of you have old toys that you're not using anymore...

Don't just toss them into trash - they have electrical components that are not good for the environment, some are plastic, and some (especially really old toys) could leach harmful chemicals.

Anyway, Eden is running a special on the recycling voucher, it's free (instead of $5). Discount is applied once you add the voucher into your shopping basket.

Order it and send your stuff in to be disposed of properly.

Cool. How long is the special lasting? I still need to sort through some of mine. I haven't actually tried the recycling program yet.

Are the recycled parts used to make toys?

no, they're not.

The parts themselves are not recycled. Some of the raw materials that are used to make toys can be recycled and are actually pretty valuable. When toys are disposed of properly, these materials are extracted by the recycling facility (Eden doesn't extract anything OR make money off recycling) and then sold to manufacturing companies.

Other components of toys (especially in old toys) can leach and be bad for the environment.

Some parts like sealed mercury diodes can be toxic for the water table if they are let to leech into the ground. Even in tiny amounts it can build up.

The voucher you get from participating in the program doesn't expire, so it's never too late.
You can send your unwanted toys in anytime and hang on to the voucher until you're ready to make your next purchase.

It might come handy during the Holiday Shopping Season

What a wonderful program to have, and the incentive is nice as well. I love the idea of recycling them.

I really wish I had more information on recycling sex toys,because I feel iffy about it. New vibrators made of old ones? What if that isnt sanitary? I really dont feel comfortable about it quite yet. I dont think I'd buy a sex toy that I knew was made from an old one that had been used.

Also, since you are saying they have components that arent good for the environment, it makes me feel a bit worried that the things I thought were body safe, maybe arent, because of this. Because I've been putting these toys in my body.


Maybe I worry too much.

And if these things are to be disposed of properly, what exactly is the system that EF (or others) is doing? I want more information on the process.


I think recycling is a great idea, and when it comes to sex toys too, but I have a lot of questions about it too and I wish there were way more information out there.

First of all, no new rabbits are made from the old ones, at least not directly.
The process is the same as recycling food and beverage plastic containers. We don’t buy beverages in the old plastic bottles. The same goes to vibrators.

All parts of a vibrator that can be reused, undergoing a complicated high temperature, chemical process, making them into new raw materials, that can be used for manufacturing anything else, not just toys.

This is done inside separate recycling facility and not on our premises.

When you send us an old vibrator, you will get a coupon to buy a totally new one on EdenFantasys.

I hope that helps.

Oh okay. Thank you for the information. I know recycling can be a very lengthy and complicated process. I'm still trying to wrap my head around sex toy recycling; it's just new for me lol.

I am hugely into recycling and environmental issues, and I have my own garden and chickens (on the small farm I live on) because I want to help our environment and with other issues like my loathing for factory farming, so I definitely appreciate that EF is trying to take this new step, and I think it's great overall.

Maybe I'll warm up to it more as time goes on. Dont mind me over here. It takes me a long time to process new things.
