SAN FRANCISCO (July 2, 2009): Good Vibrations (, the legendary San Francisco-based company that takes pride in providing accurate information on sexuality and toys for grown-ups, introduces "The Earth Angel," the world’s first-ever green technology sex toy. This revolutionary new technology was developed and designed by Caden Enterprises in Ireland. It is unique in that it never requires replacement batteries and houses its own patented power core.

For years the adult novelty market has used batteries in sex toys. These batteries need to be replaced every couple of weeks and the dead batteries are then discarded and end up in landfills around the world. Most batteries contain heavy metals, such as mercury, cadmium and lead, which are the main cause for environmental concern. If waste batteries are not disposed of correctly, heavy metals may leak when the battery corrodes, thus contributing to soil and water pollution and endangering wildlife. Increased levels of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, act to enhance the natural greenhouse effect and accelerate irreversible changes in the climate.

Caden Enterprises wanted to produce an environmentally-friendly sex toy that appealed to all consumers regardless of gender, age or ethnicity. Good Vibrations shares their philosophy that every industry has an obligation to do as much as they can to reduce the effects of climate change. These two green thinking companies hope that others will follow suit and look for alternative ways to design and manufacture products.

Good Vibrations recently announced their new Ecorotic™ collection for Earth Day 2009. Staff Sexologist and company spokesperson Dr. Carol Queen said “Good Vibrations is pleased to be adding The Earth Angel to our already impressive collection of eco-friendly products. Sex is part of our lives, so any issue that concerns us out of the bedroom has implications inside it: if we recycle, buy local produce, watch our carbon use, and think ecologically in other ways, it makes sense to do the same when we make sexual choices. Our well-being and that of the earth are connected, so consider where you can go Ecorotic!”
