Eco-Friendly Sex Toys

A recent report painted a bleak picture of what the Northeast US will be like in the future if global warming continues at its current rate. Massachusetts will have hot, steamy summers. Winters will be warmer than usual, with little snow. Native fruits like blueberries and cranberries that need cold winters won't grow anymore. Lobsters will be no more because they can live only in colder waters. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

I really don't like lobster, so I'm OK with the no-more-lobsters scenario, but everything else sounds rather disturbing. So, what can we do? Work to reduce carbon emissions. That's a fancy way of saying stop driving gas-guzzling SUVs all over creation. Seriously, the report says being smarter about what vehicle you drive and how often you drive it is the single thing that individuals can do that will have the most impact.

Other changes can have smaller, but still meaningful effects. For example, this video explains that if everyone replaced their old vinyl dildos with organic cucumbers eco-friendly sex toys global warming could be halted entirely.
