Make your Mat Matter
Being a yogi and mixing with plenty of fellow yogis, naturally thee topic of environmentalism often crops up.
Recycling this, re using that, plastic free blah, paraben free this - it is an ongoing and necessary form of conversation.
One thing that is vitally important is your Yoga Mat.
Being authentic and transparent, I shall admit that for my large group yoga classes, I provide yoga mats for my students and these are made from PVC.
I am in the process of swapping these all to a more natural, Eco friendly, sustainable material, however this will take time.
My own personal mat that I use for home practice is by Yogi Bare and it is their Paws mat made from 100% Natural Eco Rubber which is biodegradable and recyclable.
It is a very worthy read and insightful.
