It's Earth Day and everything you do should be for the good of the environment.

That includes getting your rocks off. So, buy a rechargeable sex toy.

A Canadian inventor has come up with a "lead-free, phthalate-free, rechargeable sex toy made of medical-grade silicone."

It's called the We-Vibe.

"We specifically designed the We-Vibe with the environment and consumer safety in mind," says Bruce Murison, CEO of Standard Innovation Corporation, the company that manufactures the We-Vibe. Murison invented the We-Vibe, the first strapless, wireless, dual-motor vibrator that can be worn by the woman while making love for internal and external stimulation.

This is the number one selling toy in Canada and is gaining steam in the U.S., according to Yahoo! Finance. If this what you have to do to go Green, sign me up.

Want to be more environmentally friendly when you're fucking yourself? Follow these tips:

Look for sex toys made of silicone. Silicone is durable, has no taste or smell, nothing is being released from or absorbed by the material, it has low toxicity and will not support microbial growth. Also nothing will stick to silicone;

- Avoid sex toys made of plastic or rubber that give off any kind of odour - by definition they are out-gasing chemicals;

- Look for rechargeable sex toys to avoid sending disposable batteries to landfills;

- Look for sex toys that are RoHS-certified or WEEE-certified to be free of heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, certain brominated flame retardants, polybrominated biphenyls or polybrominated diphenyl ethers;

- Choose a manufacturer that is carbon-neutral. Any product's website should have its environmental specifications outlined.
