Stay green between the sheets

When the time comes to get busy, no one would fault you for briefly forgetting about environmentalism. But if you want to stay green—even during sexy time—options are available:

Organic lubricant: Typical (nonorganic) personal lubricants contain chemicals found in oven cleaner, brake fluid and antifreeze.

Whips made from recycled rubber: That’s right. The sex-toy company Earth Erotics ( manufactures whips made from recycled inner tubes.

Lambskin condoms: Unlike latex condoms, which take a long time to break down, and polyurethane condoms, which don’t break down at all, lambskin condoms are fully biodegradable. But there’s a catch—they can prevent pregnancy, but don’t protect against STDs.
