Condom redux

by

  Happy Friday.  In lieu of a weekend news roundup, I give you an article so ridiculous it stands on its own.  According to this dubious report in Pakistan Daily, Chinese companies are recycling used condoms into colorful hair ties.  Now I’ve heard of creative reuses for EXPIRED condoms that have NEVER BEEN USED.  Fair enough.  But used condoms?  While I know the claims that a recycled latex hair tie could give someone AIDS are totoally bogus, the psychological factor is just a little tough to get past.  For the same reason I would rather wear a sweater knit from sheep’s wool than dog’s hair and would rather fertilize my garden with animal poo as opposed to human manure.  It may not make sense—color me urban and sheltered—but I am not in control of my personal ick factor.  But I tangent.  The whole reason I was googling condoms and recycling and coming across articles like this little piece of comedy is beacuse I’ve been thinking a lot about green sex this week.  It’s an uncomfortable reality that latex condoms add up and end up in landfills.  The alternatives aren’t great.  There are less convenient methods and less effective condoms.  In discussing this with a friend this week, we agreed that there’s a real need for biodegradable condom.  You know, one that actually works.
