And there's no way around it: They're single-use products. The CDC even put out a warning a few years ago reminding people they shouldn't reuse condoms. Like tampons, toilet paper, and popsicle wrappers, rubbers are one-trick ponies. And sure, contraceptives such as diaphragms and IUDs are more eco-friendly, but they won't protect you from STIs. "The best thing you can aim for is a cruelty-free, considerate condom manufacturer,” Nolan suggests.
So, these are the brands doing their best to stick to sustainable practices that don't harm animals, laborers, or the Earth. Happy testing!
