The battery is really all they, themselves, claim and the natural fibre bag. So.... *shrug*

There was a rather large discussion on this exact topic. However, I guess I'll summarize.

Yes, it's a gimmick. However, there are some "perks" in comparison to using other materials (if you want a full explanation, go find that other thread. It involved "China" or something).

- Silicone (consumer grade) is relatively more environmentally friendly than other popular sex toy materials. HOWEVER, it's not environmentally friendly if it's not recycled in the end.
- Rechargeable batteries create less waste (in the short term) because they are rechargeable. HOWEVER, the energy to charge them obviously comes from somewhere, and often those sources of power are not very "green" (many people still use nuclear, coal, natural gas, etc.). Rechargeable batteries are also made with more toxic materials (often heavy metals) than regular batteries, and thus are not really too environmentally friendly if they are not recycled in the end.

Don't rechargeable batteries lose efficiency over time as well? Could turn into a little power suck.

Maybe you'll use less gas because instead of driving around you'll be at home playing with your new toy in your free time?

Somewhere, someone is facepalming and saying "I never said they were eco-friendly, I said they were green."

The vast majority of ppl actually throw away used batteries and its horrible for the environment so in a small way they are helping until that person gets rid of the toy.....

the green bandwagon. pro-electric. What the media ignores is that electric is not green unless from the right sources. solar is the only true source of green power. There are other good options, but each has some sort of environmental impact.

so we need more products like this solar bullet

I have been pondering lately though...what about rechargeable batteries? I keep looking at the recharging stations. I have so many toys that use batteries that proper disposal of both the toys and batteries...not green.

I want to learn more about rechargeable batteries, I had them a long time ago, and it seems they have really improved them.

GREEN LEAF..CHARGE WITH ELECTRICITY...GREENWAS HING? (as opposed to pinkwashing

Hmm I wouldn't get this toy because it's environmentally friendly, I would get it because it is apparently amazing! I have read the best reviews about this but gimmicks aside this toy looks like fun.

I think the real difference lies in, the lesser of two evils if your going to be buying a toy anyway this one is less harmfull to the environment than most others.

In theory, if it truly is a well made product, it will last a long time and therefore help reduce waste by not being thrown away anytime soon. Hopefully, for the sake of the price tag, anyway. In addition to the reduction of battery waste.

The packaging looks like it's from recycled paper, and would be biodegradable (or maybe recyclable).

And I'm totally adding this other Leaf product to my wishlist now. It just looks too cool!
