"Weird Eco Habit" Contest Finalist: Eco BDSM?

John T. Unger's entry to the "Weird Eco Habits" Contest starts out, "eco-bdsm is probably a weird way to save the planet." Weird? Well, yes - but that is why we had to make it a finalist. It is not every day we get to feature green design in BDSM gear. When John started, however, he did not fully intend on getting into the eco-BDSM business, "I came up with the idea as I was trying to think of new products that could be made from rubber tires and happened to talk to a furniture maker who was considering using his scrap wood for spanking paddles."
"Burning Rubber" is made from mostly recycled or reclaimed materials. In fact, everything except for the handle was previously used would have otherwise ended up in the landfill. We can't vouch for its, umm...effectiveness, but we have to say this is an innovative use of reused materials. In John's words, it "just screams" to be a part of the "Weird Eco Habits" Contest.

All this week, TreeHugger is highlighting finalists for our "Weird Eco Habits" contest sponsored by Greenloop. Make sure to vote for your favorite "weird" habit starting this Friday.
