Hello, it's Sheri from Home & Garden Buzz, here to talk about eco-friendly condom choices! Condoms are the preferred birth control for many moms out there, so you might as well know how to make your choice the best choice for the environment too.
First and foremost, the advantages to using a condom far outweigh its potential effects on the environment. After all, another human is going to wreak way more havoc on the planet than lots of little condoms.
In fact, via Slate's, What's the Greenest Form of Birth Control?: "Given that the condoms represent only about 0.001 percent of the 152 million tons of trash American households produce annually—and that we still need a lot of research into the precise effects that pharmaceuticals are having on our water supply—condoms seem to be the greener choice."
So how can you choose the best condoms for the planet and how can you dispose of them in an environmentally friendly way?
It looks like the condom industry has a ways to go in terms of making a super-green product. However, condoms do most their good green work in preventing unwanted pregnancies, and that's good news for an already overly impacted planet.
So overall, I give condoms a green thumbs up!
