There are ways you can be good to Earth while you are being good to yourself and your mate.  Sustainable and sexy is more than doable so have a little fun and be responsible on another level while you are at it.  Let’s look at 10 ways to be green and sexy.

1. Eco-lingerie is sexier than you think.
As you are dressing to be exquisite and sensual, you can also help save the world.  Whether it is soft sustainable bamboo, organic cotton, hemp, or our very favorite, pure silk, your intimates can be not only sweeter to where but sustainable too. Decorated with natural shell or wood buttons, from inside out...au natural brings on a different meaning.

2. Earth-friendly lubricant.
Conventional personal lubes often contain petroleum byproducts, colorants, preservatives, and synthetic fragrances, which contain alcohol and some have cancer forming agents.  Why would we want to place that in our more "sensitive" places?  Natural or organic lubricants usually cost the same as conventional ones.  Plant oils are an option to ease the friction (though they don't work with condoms, try Emerita with Vitamin E).  Unscented massage oils, like coconut, avocado, and apricot kernel oil, are excellent choices.  Olive oil is never bad choice.

3. Conserve energy in one place...use it in another.
Some people may enjoy having the lights on, but natural moonlight or outside lights shining through the sheers proves a greener option.  Lights use 15 percent of household electricity, which can be approximately $300 annually.  Romance with candles, or not, are a simple way to save your energy for a pleasurable night.  You should be able to turn your thermostat down too!

4. Green play.
Ditch the lunch, dinners, and expensive outings.  They are nice but do something from your heart and be nice to your wallet in the process.  Picnic in the park, ride a tandem bike, visit the arboretum, have a candlelight dinner or light a fire (using real wood or environmentally friendly logs) and just talk, or enjoy anything that uses energy responsibly.

5. Find a green single.
Being green does not mean a boring social life of sorting recyclable every weekend.  Green online dating for all shades of green is just a few clicks away..

6. Green grooming.
You can start with a candlelight shower, then use natural body washes, organic body butters or souffl├ęs, end with using organic and bamboos items for your hair, shaving, etc.  Enjoy the cleaner feeling and the various natural aromas.  

7. Eco-sex toys excite.
Most adult toys are often unregulated or untested for safety issues and use PVC and phthalates which contain cancer causing agents.  Look for organic and PVC-free items to help you eliminate dangers.    

8. Natural aphrodisiacs.
Try some known and newly discovered sustainable natural options as the natural aphrodisiac to support your physical stimulation and sexual endurance and health.  There are damiana leaves, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, horny goat weed, kava kava root, kelp, organic champagne or wine, rhodiola rosea, and tribulus.  

9. Massages are green.
A massage is not only a sensual way to relate to your lover by touch but is also relaxing.  Whether it be to set the mood for a night of love or to be sweet to your sweetie, there are natural and organic products and tools to give a smooth experience.  

10. Don't flush your condoms.
Flushing your condoms result to them being on the beach, clog pipes, and pollute sewer systems and waterways.  We don't need any more chemicals to purify any thing else that inhabit our water.  They are best to be thrown in the trash.  

I would love to hear what you have tried and what worked for you or if you have something to share.

Continue to be green and sexy!
