Do You Consider Wood to Be A GREEN Sex Toy?

Owl Identified Owl Identified
waste is created in its production and therefore it isn't truly green. if its production is wasteful and harmful to the environment then it's not green.

If you want to get really technical about wood as green, or renewable, you'll have to get into the species of wood. Some, like pine or lyptus, grow almost as fast as weeds. There are other woods on the endangered species list and it are not concidered renewable.

The ridiculous discussion should really about certifying sex toys as green. In the 70's, we were warned about a global freeze, in the 80's - a dead ocean by 2000, in the 90's global warming. Now that have to call it "climate change" because the earth is in another of it's cooling cycles. Follow the money and give it a rest!

"EF sells, uses only scraps from lumber yards, leftovers from larger wood products, or trimmed or fallen trees. They don't even cut trees down to use"
I positively love this! I had no idea. That was my only concern!!!

the only thing that worries me about wooden sex toys is the finish on them. Not enough information about the varnishes out there!

I agree. Although, I do believe they are generally food grade material but I wouldn't mind hearing more about them.

yeah, but unfortunately even the safety of our food-grade chemicals is suspect, what with all the news about BPA and such

I don't think its worth it to cut down a tree honestly. I would be much happier using a glass dildo. Sorry people.

it's "green" to me because when you order trees to be cut down and made into thing[dildos, paper product etc...] than you are ordering more trees to be planted! the more wood you use, the more they plant. it's that simple.

I think it's cruel to kill trees. PERIOD. So I disagree with a lot of the posts here.

Okay, I don't agree with the "What's wrong with you?" bit of the answer, but I do say it's green. Seconding Love Buzz's comment - it's a renewable resource and biodegradable.

I have never seen or tried a wooden toy, I would be afraid of splinters.

They had to kill a tree to make the wood toy.

what is the sealant on wood toys? I feel like that would throw off the "green" label.

i honestly don't consider it that green

I totally understand your argument/question.. And I come from a generation of "chopping down trees is bad!" But I also see that trees are renewable resources, so I understand that that is "green."

Trees grow. Wood is biodegradable. Trees will be cut down anyway, and if you're using scrap wood that would otherwise be wasted, totally green.

Now, if we lived in a culture where trees were a sacred entity and were never cut down for fear of angering the gods, and we had no mass-production of paper products, lived in plastic houses, and wiped our asses with a nice hose and a synthetic reusable cloth, well... yeah, then I'd go for the 'cutting down trees is bad!' argument, but there's a good likelihood that for something so small as a dildo, the tree was not cut down to make that dildo. The tree would have been cut down anyway.

I would sooner rage about the four trees that my father cut out of our back yard when I was a kid and then chopped into firewood, than the greenness of a wood dildo. As wood is a renewable resource which our culture very much depends on, a 8 inch long piece of wood is hardly going to destroy the forests. And unlike the 8 inch long piece of rubber, that piece of wood will eventually return to the earth instead of polluting up the planet for years to come. Will alien researchers a thousand years from now find our planet a barren wasteland, except for rubbery dildos? Who knows! But my wooden toys will not be among this cluttered remains of a culture!

...So yeah. Green.

Green depends on a lot of things:

1. What type of wood was used?
2. How far away was the wood cut down to where it was manufactured? Doesn't make it green if it was harvested in China and shipped to the Midwest.
3. How "renewable" is that type of wood?
4. What happened to the by product from the harvesting and manufacturing of the toy?
5. How do they replenish the wood that is cut down?

I agree with you... I understand that it is renewable but when we already use trees for so much other stuff... why add on to that???

Wood is organic, so it will break down if thrown away. Plastic won't for a really, really long time.
