We’ve noticed the term ‘eco-bore’ being bandied around lately, but listening to people bang on about saving the planet is less of a chore when banging is precisely what’s called for.
Yes, here at Bella Rouge we believe sex can save the world. From knowing how to recycle Rabbits to dripping molten wax over nipples while cutting carbon emissions, we have energy efficient orgasms covered.
So, if you want to slow down global warming, it’s time to heat things up in the bedroom…
Go Green With… Ambience
Up till now, we have insisted on having sex with the lights on, but times are changing.
If three million households in South Africa alone switched off unnecessary lights during one hour of nookie per day, it would save 380 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
Trouble is, some women (contrary to popular belief) are visually stimulated, and if you’d prefer to see your cake and eat him, you’re going to appreciate this bright idea:
Hemp & Soy Massage Candles R180, available in Skinny Dip, Naked in the Woods and Lavender, not only provide 60 hours of ambient glow; when you blow out the flame you can scoop out the skin-safe melted soy wax from the heart-shaped container, drip it over your lover and use it as massage oil. His nipples will love it!
Go Green With… Masturbation
It’s no longer good enough to throw old electrical equipment, including vibrators, in the bin. Luckily Bella Rouge has come up with a green way for us to get rid of our redundant Rabbits – and save a few bucks at the same time.
Under our new Rabbit Amnesty recycling scheme, vibe owners can send their old toys to Bella Rouge and in return receive a half-price Rabbit vibe from our range.
The second-hand toys will then be delivered to a Designated Collection Facility where they will be recycled and treated in an ecologically sound manner. For each rabbit returned, Bella Rouge will also donate R20 to WESSA (Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa) in support of the charity. Orgasms with a clear conscience just got easier.
Go Green With… Condoms
Despite various campaigns, people still insist on flushing things down the loo that should be chucked in a bin – like condoms. Flushing condoms down the toilet can cause blockages because sewage systems aren’t built to deal with that sort of waste. This can lead to more waste being emptied into the water.
Also a lot of these used condoms end up on our beaches. Ew! So always wrap used rubbers in a tissue and deposit them in a bin. Although putting condoms in the bin means they end up at landfill sites, it’s the lesser of two evils.
