Support the funds that protect abortion access
Less than one year ago, the Supreme Court's conservative members struck down Roe v Wade, rendering abortion illegal in nearly half of all US states.
Good Vibrations - with our sibling company, Babeland - stand with the outraged people who are raising their voices in protest -- and with the organizations and activists who tirelessly work to preserve abortion access for all, most critically in the states that have (or will imminently) shut off access to a safe and legal abortion.
This is a massive set-back to human rights, a devastating blow to bodily autonomy, and a decision that directly puts countless lives at risk and communities in danger. We need to stand up and stand together. This fight is not over.
As of right now, only 16 US states and the District of Columbia protect the right to abortion. With our constitutionally protected right to abortion under attack, abortion funds are working nonstop to make sure people can still access (and afford) abortion.
By donating to the National Network of Abortion Funds, all donations received will be split evenly between more than 90 abortion funds nationwide!
Your donation will be added directly to your online purchase. 100% of the proceeds go directly to the National Network of Abortion Funds. In addition, both Good Vibrations and Babeland will each be matching a portion of your donations to continue our support of this important cause.
For over 40 years, Good Vibrations’ mission has been to advocate social consciousness, sex positivity and empowerment for all, regardless of age, race, gender identity, or economic status. With the rapid changes to cultural and political climates, we are more compelled than ever to support partners and organizations that foster respect, diversity, and acceptance in the communities that we serve, and in which we live.
Through our GIVE program, we are able to collect donations to support non-profits and charities that provide resources and support to those seeking help in a multitude of ways. We select local charities that aid marginalized communities, provide sexual health services, provide safe spaces for survivors, defend the rights of underrepresented populations, deliver aid to victims of natural disasters, and more. GIVE also provides educational outreach workshops and support to help people on their journey to both mental and physical wellness. 100% of all donations collected go directly to our partners.
Donations collected through GIVE have helped provide 40 hours of rape crisis counselor training to 75 BARCC volunteers who support survivors, train care providers, and educate communities.
Through the generosity of our customers and resources provided by our education staff and Sex Educator Sales Associates (SESA), GIVE has been able to support hundreds of charitable organizations, including:
We are committed to providing customers the highest quality products available. Our product collection has been carefully curated to ensure products are not only superior in performance, but also that they are body-safe with as low a carbon footprint as possible.
Keeping You Safe
Sex toys are made from many different materials, with varying amounts of information available about them. We test and review products for safety, and always choose the best-quality items we can. In 2001, Good Vibrations was the first company in the US to research the issue of items containing phthalates (chemical softeners that raised concerns about toxicity in plastics) and researched safer alternatives. In 2007, we became the first multi-channel retail company to discontinue products made with this substance, and the rest of the sex toy industry soon followed suit. Today, we still uphold the same commitment to quality and safety because we want our customers to feel good (both literally and figuratively) about what they are putting in their bodies and know that these products are not harming the environment.
Protecting the Environment
When sourcing products, we are committed to working with vendors that consider the environmental impact they have during production and packaging of their goods for distribution. You will find that many of the toys we offer are powered by rechargeable batteries; reducing the number of batteries that end up in landfills. We also look for as many products as possible that contain natural ingredients (especially lubricants), as there is less processing required, resulting is less emissions that could be harmful to the environment.
It is our goal to provide products that use highly recyclable materials such as natural and eco-friendly paper, which require less water and energy to make. Many of the products we offer are free of plastic inserts and/or other non-recyclable packaging pieces. More and more of our product vendors have adopted the use of soy ink on their packaging. Soy ink contains far lower levels of Volatile Organic Compounds, and this ultimately results in less energy and chemicals being used in the de-inking process that occurs before paper can be recycled.
