Sex Toy Brand ohhcean Is Starting a New Wave in the Industry
The sustainably minded company is making sex toys with ocean-bound plastic.
ohhcean is the first sex toy brand to make a toy out of ocean-bound plastic. The company is created by Mathilde Mackowski, the co-owner of erotic online shop Sinful, who realized that her love of nature and sex tech might conflict. Her solution? Using recycled ocean plastics to create more environmentally conscious sex toys.
Mackowski was inspired to pioneer this shift to sustainability as she was taking in the view of the ocean and realized how much plastic waste was immersed in the waves. As the creator of an already successful business in the sexual wellness industry, she knew this was a change she could lead. The brand has partnered with #tide, a leader in upcycling and recycling of ocean-bound plastic, in the manufacturing process of its sleekly designed products.
Below, Mackowski shares suggestions for ohhcean sex toys you should try depending on your lifestyle.
