Because heating things up in the bedroom shouldn’t have to cost the Earth…

Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam

So Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam were announced today as the actors set to play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in the movie version of the hit erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey.

Although we’re a teensy bit disappointed not to see Global Cool fave Ian Somerhalder portraying our favourite literary bad boy, we are excited to see some new faces on the big screen. And this is what we know so far…

Dakota Johnson is the pretty blonde daughter of stars Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. Although she’s not that well known in the acting world, she has had roles in The Social Network21 Jump Street and The Five-Year Engagement. We can’t wait to see what she brings to the role.

And as for our Mr Grey, 33-year-old Charlie Hunnam, is abest known for his lead role in Sons of Anarchy and was also the star of Pacific Rim. To be fair there’s only one thing we’re all thinking right now though… check out those abs…

If all this talk of Fifty Shades of Grey is making you feel the need to get a bit more kinky in the bedroom, then we’re here to help. But just because you’re heating things up under the covers, it doesn’t mean you have to heat up the planet too. Try our guide to eco-sex this summer and spice things up a bit…

Eco Sex Toys

Be naughty in the sack, but nice to the environment with this Recycled Rubber Whip (pictured above left)! Earth Erotics say “give your partner a spanking to feel good about”, with this flexible and green whip. Or if you’re feeling really daring you can upgrade to The Thud Lover Whip (yes, we think it sounds a bit scary too).

Or experiment with the Three Kisses Love Oil Sampler. The kit contains a travel size of all of Earth Erotic’s  best selling love oils, which can be used individually or combined for a real love adventure. It’s available for under £20 at the moment too so snap it up before it’s gone.

And while you’re at it (like rabbits) make sure you’re being safe. Choose these French Letter eco condoms and wrap it up the green way. They’re made entirely from fair trade rubber, so you can be sure you’re looking after the planet. And with flavours like ‘Aphrodisiac’ and ‘Linger Lust’ your bedroom sessions will be anything but boring!

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Love the trend (not the spend) /

Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
