Collection: Eco-Friendly Cork

The average yoga mat is made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride), commonly known as the ‘Poison Plastic’ and is derived from petroleum. PVC is toxic at every stage of its life cycle, from manufacture to disposal where harmful waste chemicals and gases enter the atmosphere, soil or water. PVC yoga mats are also considered to be potentially harmful to users in that you may be exposed to harmful gases and chemicals through inhalation and contact. Alternatives made from TPE or PER are also petroleum derived, and the relative safety implications, both of health and environment are disputable. So without further delay, let me introduce you to a wonderful alternative - Cork!!!

Some benefits are....

Grippy - Unlike a synthetic yoga mat that can become slippery when wet, cork works just the opposite. Cork releases a waxy substance known as Suberin and the more you sweat the grippier cork becomes.

Self-cleansing - Synthetic yoga mats over time can become host to a myriad of bacteria, germs and odours, whereas cork is naturally antimicrobial: it contains substances which kill bacteria and fungus and also helps to keeps your mat clean and free from odour.
