Eco-Friendly Mats for Yogis

Every yogi has at least one essential tool when pursuing their personal practice - the yoga mat. Whether at the studio, outside, or in your home, this mat comes in handy in meditation, comfortability and improving sequences.

The yogi is heath and earth centered so for a lot of us, we care that our mats are conscious of those qualities too. The Eco-Friendly Mat has been created to protect the environment but still provide high quality equipment that will last years in your practice.

What makes a mat eco-friendly?
The qualities that make a mat eco-friendly include the materials used, the production process and the dyes that create the mat color. Brands will develop specific techniques and use material choices that continue to protect the environment.

How to shop eco-friendly mats?
Shopping eco-friendly yoga products has become more common as brands feel the need to protect our Earth. While shopping, check details on labels or in online descriptions to see what materials are used in creating your mat. You can also check if the brand's list anything about eco-friendly practices, or details of their process to reduce waste in their mats.

Don't have an eco-friendly mat? No worries! You can practice your own eco-friendly and sustainable techniques by keeping your mat for life and reducing landfill waste by reusing time and time again. And when your mat does end it's lifetime- always remember to recycle!
