Godemiche Earth Day Blog Post Banner WHat we do to recycle

Green Godemiche

Did you know it can take 50 to 80 years for the rubber sole of a shoe to decompose!

Up to 80 years, 80 YEARS! That is a very long time but obviously no where near as long as it takes plastics, depending on the type that takes anywhere from 100 to a 1000 years to decompose.

Knowing this we have always tried to be as responsible with our waste as we can and as today is International Mother Earth day we thought we would take a few moments to explain some of the things that we do at Godemiche to try to limit our waste and be a zero landfill waste operation

WTF – When things go wrong

From time to time we make mistakes when pouring our toys and when a mistake happens with silicone there is no reversing the process. Mistakes mean we have a silicone toy that, for whatever reason, is imperfect.

We have never thrown away these mistakes but instead we collect them all together in to a box and once there is a few of them we list them on the website in the WTF sale (What The Flop) section for at a reduced price. That way they don’t end up going to landfill and someone gets themselves a super bargain.

Re-purposing molds

Our molds are made of silicone, a newly made mold will give products a glass finish but over time the mold starts to get small imperfections which eventually effects the finish of the toys. Once a mold becomes too old we replace it. However that meant that we were building up a box of old molds which we were reluctant to throw away.

Then one day we had the idea to use these unused molds to create candles and so using a eco soy wax and the old molds we started making out cock candles. 3 years later we have only had to dispose of 1 candle mold because that one ripped. 

Reusable equipment 

When mixing silicone you need mixing sticks and mixing pots. We made the decision to purchase reusable mixing pots over popular plastic, one use, disposable beakers. We also have our own hardwood, reusable mixing sticks made for us by a local wood yard. 

The initial cost of mixing post and custom made mixing sticks was more expensive than using disposable ones and they require cleaning, but we don’t ever have to throw them and over time they will actually save us money.

Recyclable packaging 

Packaging has always been a concern of ours. We have never personally kept the packing for any of the sex toys we have purchased, always just putting it in the bin and so we wanted to keep our packaging to a minimum. However people like packaging and shops like packaging so we had to find a middle ground where our products were packaged but in the greenest way possible. 

This is why we chose the foil lined recyclable pouches so which tick the box when it comes to packaging but can be disposed off in an Eco-friendly way or are strong enough to be used to store your toy in or anything else that fits.

Zero Landfill 

As much as we try to prevent it there is always going to be waste silicone, from silicone peeled out of pots and stick, paper, boxes, packaging and any other over looked waste like food packaging or drinks cans. 

This is where we have a ‘Zero Landfill’ contract with Enva who collect all of our waste. Things such as paper and card are recycled, where items that are not recyclable such as silicone are turned in to green energy. The silicone is sent over to Germany were it is incinerated to produce green energy. To remove any bad toxins the incinerators have layers of filters result in only green gasses being emitted

LED Lighting 

We are very lucky that our offices have large skylights that let in lots of daylight, even in winter. As a result we don’t often use lights in the office. On the occasions that we need the lights on or when working nights we have A rated LED lighting panels fitted throughout to be as energy efficient as possible. 

Turn that plug off

All plugs are switched off at the wall at the end of the day and everything is powered down. No laptops, to printers, no lights, everything is OFF meaning when we are not there the office is not using any energy at all.

What we do could have a much larger negative impact on the environment and as we grow that potential impact has the potential to grow but it is something that we are very mindful of and will always work very hard to mitigate as much as possible. We are very proud that to this point we have made sure that Godemiche has the smallest environmental impact possible and feel that today, International Mother Earth Day was a great time to tell this story and explain what goes on behind the scenes with the goal of keeping us 100% green!

Godemiche Silicone Easter Egg Hunt Banner with Easter agg and pink chick

The Easter Egg Hunt – Find 5 Easter Eggs

The thrill of an Easter Egg hunt around Grandma garden, racing to find those tiny chocolate eggs will always be one of my great childhood memories.

But as I have grown older, Grandma doesn’t hide the eggs anymore but I still really fancy the thrill of hunting Easter Eggs. Don’t you?

So this year to fully embrace Easter we decided to have a good ole fashioned Easter Egg hunt right here on our sexy sex toy shop.

We have hidden 5 Easter Eggs around the website, the eggs are bright, colourful and all visually different to help you find them.

To take part in the Easter egg hunt all you have to do is;

  • Find all 5 of the eggs
  • Make a note of their location
  • Fill in the Easter Egg form
  • Get a link to the super secret product that you can only buy if you do the previous 3 steps.

Once you have done that you need fill out the Easter Egg form, letting us know where the 5 eggs are located. (To get you started we have put one on this page) If you successfully find the 5 eggs in their hiding places we will send you a secret link to a very limited Easter colour mix. But be quick the hunt is only on until the end of April.

Juicy View – Sinful Sunday

 

I love looking at your juicy bum when you sleep

I love touching your round backside when I fit my body to your curves

I love a bit of hair there too, it’s sexy and cute.

This time we had separate beds and it was … odd.

I didn’t like that but I had a juicy view … so I guess that it’s ok.

 

 

Kiss the lips to uncover more sinful images

Godemiche silicone dildos silicone butt plugs the Lollipop Line Pastle glitter

The Lollipop Line

We know it is not quite Easter but we couldn’t wait till then to share our newest collection with you so here goes.

We are always on the look out to extend and develop our colour range. Yes we will freely admit that we are a bit obsessed with colours so when we discovered some pastel glittery options we just couldn’t resist them. The only big question was what were we going to call this new collection? The answer came when we made them up and looked at them all side by side and they reminded us of vintage sweeties (candies to you Americans) the kinds you used to get at the seaside along with your Candy floss and so here we are introducing the Lollipop Line.

The Lollipop Line consists of 8 new deliciously sweet colours;

Lemon Fizz – Fizz, whizz, this is a sparkling lemon yellow bizz 

Blueberry Bubblegum – Suck it or blow it but what ever you do don’t chew it. 

Tangerine Tingle – Tangy and tart that brings a tingle to your whole body

Strawberry Bum Bum – Sweet and juicy and red like a strawberry in summertime.

Blackcurrant Burst – A British fruit unknown in America but bursting with fruity flavours.

Lime Sherbet -Sharp and sweet, a tasty treat

Raspberry Cream – A burst of ripe summer fruit mixed with delicious cream.

We hope that this new collection will inspire thoughts of seaside memories and holiday sweet treats as you indulge in some personal pleasure with these delectable treats.

*The Lollipop line is available in all Godemiche products excluding the OffBeat and like all our silicone products also comes with a lifetime guarantee.

Godemiche silicone dildo Eroticon 2019 Meet and Greet Banner

Eroticon 2019 Virtual Meet and Greet – Monika

It’s time for the female side of Godemiche to present my person to you all.

NAME (and Twitter if you have one)

Hi, I’m Monika and I’m trying to stay stable with my other half who you met already – Adam. Believe me it’s not easy, let’s say VERY challenging. Anyway, I’m the person behind the Instagram feed and also a creator of IG Story. I love social media!  Oh, and I make dildos and take all the photography for our website as well;)

Tell us 3 things you are most looking forward to at Eroticon 2019

  1. People! The amazing thing about Eroticon is that I get to talk to a lot of girls! so it’s almost like a girly weekend with the best chicks in the UK;) (Men also but for some reason not so many, sorry guys)
  2. The talks – they are always so interesting! Eroticon is very well organised and there’s always something I will learn from others which leads to new open conversations.
  3. Weekend without screaming and fighting kids! Yes, I couldn’t be more happier. As this mother needs some time to breath and take it slow.

We are creating a play list of songs for the Friday Night Meet and Greet. Nominate one song that you would like us to add to the play list and tell us why you picked that song.

I am obsessed with Mariah Carey at the minute and her song ‘GTFO’. Once it’s in my ears I can listen to it on rewind couple of times. Why? It helps me dealing in stressed situations when I had an argument with Adam and it just feels good.

What is your favorite item or book you’ve purchased so far this year?

This year I am reading much more books than last year. I think it’s a type of a selfcare and it just takes my mind away other than our workshop, spreadsheets and kids. I really liked ‘Clean’ by Juno Dawson, I’ve met her personally and she made such a great impact on me. She’s very motivated to make a change in trans community and has brilliant sense of humour. Love Juno!

You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it? Sushi? Scotch Tape?

Oh, that’s a difficult one. It would be books or nice clothes. Hard to choose… BOOKS.

What is your favourite quote from a movie?

I don’t really remember any quotes from the movies , I can barely remember somebody’s phone number or even a name of the new people I’ve met but I’ve read an amazing quote that stuck in my head from Kyle Maynard – NOT DEAD, CAN’T QUIT. I think it can resonate to some situations in my life when I feel down and try to let go of some things. This quote reminds me of a strength I’ve got inside me.

What is your word suggestion to next years Eroticon anthology?

Guilt

Complete the sentence:

I feel… hungry for new adventures.

Godemiche silicone dildo Eroticon 2019 Adam Meet and Great Blog Banner

Eroticon 2019 Virtual Meet and Greet – Adam

It is time to do a little online meet and greeting for Eroticon 2019 that is this coming weekend.

NAME (and Twitter if you have one)

I’ve been called all sorts on Twitter, just google it, but for this, Adam is fine, not Adam is fine, just it’s fine to call me Adam.

Tell us 3 things you are most looking forward to at Eroticon 2019

1, Seeing people, real human beings that aren’t Monika or my kids!

2, Learning something new, that always happens and often when I’m least expecting to be learning something.

3, Finally this year I’m going to simply enjoy being at Eroticon, it’s not often we attend events and get to just enjoy them.

We are creating a play list of songs for the Friday Night Meet and Greet. Nominate one song that you would like us to add to the play list and tell us why you picked that song.

Oh man just one song? Ok so right now that would have to be The Sights by Enter Shikari. As for why, love the band, seen them live a couple of times and some super cleaver lyrics

‘So lemme get this straight; as we witness the ice-caps melt

Instead of being inspired into changing our ways

We’re gonna invest into military hardware to fight for the remaining oil that

Left beneath the ice!

But what happens when it’s all gone! You haven’t thought this through

Have you boys!’

What is your favorite item or book you’ve purchased so far this year?

I’m so bad with books, I buy them because I like the audio book and want to keep it in my collection but I did get this colour tone book that was just amazing. If your looking for an interesting audio-book then I’d recommend ‘American Kingpin’ about the dark web and the notorious Silk Row.

You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it? Sushi? Scotch Tape?

Shoes, I might have given myself this unhealthy obsession with shoes after listing to the audio book ‘Shoe dog’ about the creation of Nike, then I bought books on collector sneakers and then I become obsessed.

What is your favourite quote from a movie?

‘A monsters is relative, to a canary a cats a monster’ Jurassic park, I don’t know why I always remember that but I love the juxtaposition it creates in my mind. Oohh I’ve just remembered the one from Dusk till dawn about Apple pie pussy, that ones good too.

What is your word suggestion to next years Eroticon anthology?

Inclusive

Complete the sentence:

I feel… like I’ve not got a sensible, logical or educational answer to that. Drink anyone?

Behind The Scenes of Godemiche Workshop – February

Hello and welcome to another edition of Behind the Scenes, where you can have a sneak peek of what has been popular in the Godemiche workshop during February.

So February was named the Month Of Love to celebrate Valentine’s Day but not only for one day but for the whole month. We don’t need excuses to make love, right?!:)  We’ve decided to create a beautiful collection of Pastel Be My Valentine which was a big success, as well as UV version of that collection. We have put UV butt plugs under the black light and it looks amazing. Just have a look.

Godemiche SIlicone DIldo Adam Pastel Be My Valentine Godemiche SIlicone Butt Plug UV

  1. Adam 8in Peach Puff Be My Valentine
  2. Plug-B small in Orange UV and Green UV under the UV light. They look spectacular!

I have to say February was pretty busy. Other than standard requests from our lovely customers we’ve made a pretty big order for RodeoH and one of the things they wanted to stock were Colourflage Adams. We’re very happy that the American audience will have a chance to get this collection together with their comfortable strapons. We’ve actually stock some of RodeoH’s designs, you should check them out HERE.

We’ve heard from loads of people that when it is time to choose the colour of the Godemiche dildo it can be a struggle. We can make easily over 2000 colour combinations and it doesn’t stop there.  So when this order came for Ambit in Coffee and Rose Gold we had mixed feelings about it,  but I’ll leave you to decide what you think.

  2. Ambit Coffee and Rose Gold

Lets move on to another ‘not so usual’ order.

Now, here I should paste a picture of our faces looking at each other with a confusion and mixed feelings because we’ve never made OffBeat masturbator in Cappuccino colour. However I think I quiet like it 😉

The Adam in Green Pearlescent was a customised shade of green with a touch of black.

  1. OffBeat in Cappuccino
  2. Adam 8in Dark Green Pearlescent – custom request

… and last but not least beautiful Confused Rainbow and Blue UV Apex. As  you can see we had a lot of fun in the photography studio with them. If you have a UV sex party you know what to take…;)

That’s all for now and I’ll see you by the end of the March with some new interesting dildos.

See you next month!

Put A Condom On Yes, condoms are part of our sexual life and having an Interational Condom Day

Put A Condom On For International Condom Day

There’s one thing that we should celebrate more than Valentines Day. For some people this day is very important, but let’s be clear, what would we do without condoms?!

Yes, condoms are part of our sexual life and having an Interational Condom Day today is great excuse to talk a bit about condoms plus we’ve also got a challenge for you!

So let’s start with the basics, what is a condom?

  • A condom comes in a foil packet.
  • Condoms are thin pouches that keep sperm from getting into the vagina.
  • A condom is worn on the penis.
  • It is usually made of latex a type of rubber.

But some are made of materials that are safe for people with latex allergies , such as polyurethane or polyisoprene.

 

The condom is rolled over the penis and forms a protective barrier that helps to prevent the spread of sexual transmitted infections (STI) and is also one of the most reliable forums of contraception.

There’s a wonderful in-depth post on condoms, written by Molly Moore which you can read just HERE . We highly recommend you to check it out if your looking for more information on condoms. It’s been said that condoms are a passion killer (you obviously don’t have kids).

Some people said that the moment you need to put a condom on in the middle of a sex is killing the atmosphere. But there are many who will say that actually condoms can spice up the foreplay.

 

So here’s a challenge for you!

We want to test your skills in putting a condom on, but wait! that’s not all, cause it would be too easy.

We challenge you to put a condom on, BLINDFOLDED.

Simply grab a condom, something to cover your eyes and any dildo, vegetable or excited willing volunteer you can get your hands on.

 

Here are the rules:

The blindfold must be from start to finish  (before you open the condom)

  1. The condom must be on properly and not broken.
  2. There is no time limits or times to beat but if your willing to record yourself and post it to social media, tag us in and use the #PutACondomOn and we will email you a 35% of discount code.

 

We had so much fun doing this video so we’re really really looking forward to see what videos you produce, might even have a blog showcasing them.

 

For now have fun and stay colourful.

 

Team G

Godemiche Silicone Dildos Bi Colour Pegs and Plug B for Godemiche Workshop

Behind The Scenes of Godemiche Workshop

Welcome to ‘Behind the Scenes’ of Godemiche Workshop where you can see what’s been popular and what different silicone pieces we’ve been working on during the whole month of January.

As you may know we’ve launched our new Pastel Be My Valentine Collection which I must say you’ve liked a lot. We’ve received couple of custom designs which we are very happy to make at NO extra charge. Remember if you wish to get the colours you want just leave us a note on the checkout – it’s simple as that.

Here are just a few creative pieces you requested:

  1. Adam 6in with Pastel Mix Love Hearts and Purple UV base – customer choice
  2. Ambit Princess Perfume and Electric Lavender Love Hearts and the same colours mixed base.
  3. Apprentice – Princess Perfume Be My Valentine

The OffBeat is getting your attention more each month , since December launch we haven’t stop making the masturbators. You’ve been so kind to leave positive feedback and the good vibes around this toy can’t just stop.

  1. OffBeat Gold Venti – textured
  2. Packaging – the masturbator sleeve comes in a cardboard tube. It’s also a storage container.
  3. Venti Standard Yellow OffBeat and Dark Green Grande OffBeat

I think it’s fair to say that Godemiche is well known as a brand with overwhelming amount of colours. There’s no other place that you can find with so many colourful dildos. We can mix literally EVERYTHING. Here are some of  YOUR choices we haven’t done before.

  1. Adam 8in Electric Lavender and Bolt Gun Grey – customers choice
  2. Apex Large in Peach Puff and Pearl – wasn’t sure about this one but I really like it!
  3. Adam 8in – Purple UV and Rose Gold

… and the usual colours that still surprise us every time.

  1. Adam 8in – Red and Black or as we call it Vampiresk Dildo. I take my hat off to Adam as only he knows how to pour this mix so well. I’ve tried and failed miserably .
  2. Ambit (from left to right) – Blue UV and Pink UV with Pink Uv and Purple UV – both were made for a sex shop Taboorva
  3. Ambit – Pink UV and Gold packed in our see through pouches which can be used as a storage as well.

Some of the random things we have made like candles. You can see how securely we pack them, also the unforgettable Nebula Galaxy, and the mix which I personally adore in Anal Duo. Have a look:

  1. Candle Dildo Adam 6in Yellow – we don’t use plastic fillers in our parcels however this is one exception. You can’t trust the postman, so this is the way we secure the candles from being broken.
  2. Adam 6in Galaxy Nebula – it was made by Sean actually – our new toy maker who happen to be Adams little brother. Pretty great!
  3. Anal Duo in Navy Blue and White – there’s something hypnotising in this mix ,I swear I can look at it over and over again and again…

Things that surprised me last week:

  1. It is a WHITE Ambit Dildo!!! I guess white is also a colour , we don’t make them a lot… ok we don’t make them at all but it’s still beautiful
  2. Apex Small in adorable mix Princess Perfume and Blue Lagoon.
  3. Plug B Large in Blue Lagoon – anal toys can be cute.

These are just a few images that I wanted to share with you but believe me my phone currently has close to 3000 images which is impossible to share. I’ve even got told of by Adam that I spent way too much time taking pictures, but hey I just can’t help it. The colours the mixes in different angles oh…  Yeah, I’m pretty obsessed.

And you? Which one is your favourite? Leave a comment below I’m very curious;)

See you next month with more updates.

Monika
