I'm pro-recycling in general, and I'm glad this program exists. I especially like how they harvest the some stuff (silicone and certain rubbers) for new toys and re-purpose other stuff for non-sex toy purposes. I have long thought that I would love to see recycling of sex toys... but for insulation or something, not for making more sex toys. But it makes sense to do so with the materials that can be sterilized.
That said, I don't think I could do this with most of my equipment, certainly not a silicone cock that is not going to wear out on me or anything. My cocks are a part of me, so the idea of sending them away to be ground up just doesn't mesh. Even a beloved but broken Silky has too many memories to send away. I hope someday, maybe my 69th birthday or something, we'll break out a box of broken scrubbed Silkies and have a big ol Silky fight.
I know there are plenty of people who don't identify so heavily with their toys this way, hell I know people who get new toys for every new relationship, and that works too so more power to them. I'm glad these programs exist because otherwise those old toys would just end up in a landfill.
I hope people will consider buying a recycled toy because their method seems solid- only the core is made of recycled material, and it's sealed off by a fresh layer of silicone. That layer is not porous so no one is coming in contact with the sterilized recycled material.
Plus their little "dildo tree" picture on the "Shopping Green" section of the website is adorable. Seriously, even if the idea grosses you out, go see the dildo tree: link
I'm not thrilled about the bottom of this page: link
where they suggest that people use fruits and veggies as dildos, electric toothbrushes as vibrators, etc. There is no mention of the heavy consequences that can result from doing that. I would expect people who know so much about sex toys to be more responsible.
