Recycling Takes A Turn For The Kinky

Apr 06, 14 Recycling Takes A Turn For The Kinky

Okay, I admit it. I am addicted to sex toy sites. I troll them like crazy looking, and lusting over, the latest and greatest. One of my ambitions in life is to find a way to become a sex toy reviewer so that I don’t have to spend money to support my shopping habit.

But what do you do when a toy breaks? Or doesn’t “do it” for you anymore? Or maybe, holds really bad memories because that guy you really loved, who broke your heart and stomped on it, bought you that toy and taught you how to use it. What do you do then?

Never fear! Scarlet Girl is here!

Let me start with this. So far, Scarlet Girl is the first sex toy website I’ve ever run across that is “Certified Green.” Many of their products are Eco-Friendly, and as a company they practice what they preach. Their company vehicles are diesel hybrids, they reuse packing materials, they even collect old cell phones and deliver them to a local women’s shelter for reuse or recycling. They really practice what they preach.

That applies to sex toys as well. The Sextainability Program for recycling sex toys will accept your toys—working or broken, bought from them or not—to be disassembled and recycled for their electronic and plastic parts.

It’s a pretty simple process. You fill out their form, clean your toys, and ship them in. The folks at Scarlet Girl will break them down and see that the components are properly recycled at facilities regulated by OSHA and the EPA.

Now, let’s be serious here. They have to be CLEAN toys. Clean and DRY. If you send them something gross, they will just tape the box back up and send it back to you. My favorite line on their whole page has to be this one: “This offer only applies to actual sex toys; sending us empty lipstick tubes or a length of old garden hose doesn’t count!”

What’s that? Yeah, I can hear you asking, “But then I don’t have a toy to play with, do I?” Scarlet Girl thought of that too. For each shipment you send in (not each individual toy), they will give you $10 in-store credit to buy a new toy with them.

So not only do you get all the broken, worn out, bad juju toys out of your house, they pay you to send them. SWEET!
