What are Sustainable Yoga Mats?

Yoga is a holistic journey that unites the mind, body, and soul. It simply makes sense to incorporate sustainability into our yoga practice as we strengthen our ties to the planet. 

Let's explore what sets sustainable yoga mats apart from traditional mats and their key attributes.

Key Features of Sustainable Yoga Mats Australia:

Sustainable yoga mats typically have these key features that set them apart from traditionally made yoga mats. These include:

  • Eco-friendly materials: These mats are made with eco-friendly materials that are renewable and biodegradable, minimising any negative effects on the environment. This can include cork, natural rubber, jute and recycled materials.
  • Toxin-Free: They don't include toxic substances like PVC, latex, or phthalates, making them safe for both you and the environment.
  • Long-Lasting and Robust: Sustainable yoga mats are made to last from repeated use which lowers the frequency of replacement.
  • Recyclable and biodegradable: Sustainable yoga mats that are made from natural fibres have the ability to biodegrade at the end of their useful lives, leaving a very small environmental impact behind.

Eco-Friendly Materials Used in Sustainable Yoga Mats

Typically sustainable yoga mats are constructed from common sustainable materials such as:

  • Natural rubber: This is a renewable and biodegradable substance that is derived from rubber trees. The colour of natural rubber varies depending on the climate and terrain of the plant. The colour variation includes sand, cream, eggshell, beige, tan, white and more…
  • Cork: Cork is an antibacterial material that offers a secure grip and is harvested without damaging cork oak trees.
  • Jute: This biodegradable natural plant fibre offers a textured surface that has great anti-slip properties.
  • Recycled Materials: Some mats use recycled plastic or rubber, keeping trash out of landfills.

The brand LovEarth which is featured in The Someday Co store has created sustainable yoga mats in Australia made from natural rubber trees and jute. These mats are fully biodegradable, and chemical-free and include a non-slip surface created from sticky cross-hatching. The LovEarth mats include a Polygiene Stays Fresh Technology that controls odour and inhibits the growth of odour-causing bacteria.
