7 Eco-Friendly Yoga Mats That Won’t Go to Landfill

So many of the products that we buy and use daily will end up in a landfill at the end of their lives – especially those made from plastics or other unrecyclable (or uncompostable) materials.

Yoga mats usually fall into this category.

Fortunately, more and more incredible companies are producing sustainable, chemical-free yoga mats. Most are made from jute or all-natural rubber – materials that are gentle on the earth, without sacrificing grip quality.

Sound like something you’d be into? Read on!
