Earth Day 22 #9: Eco-Yoga
While practicing yoga has always seemed in line with the eco-movement, that isn’t always the case. Sometimes yoga mats are made from environmentally harmful materials. Natural Fitness Inc. has created a wonderful alternative to the “dirty” mats already on the market.
The Natural Fitness Journey Yoga Mat is made from natural rubber, which is a renewable resource grown sustainably. The mats are biodegradable and non-toxic, naturally. The rubber trees also reduce CO2 from the air and release oxygen back into the environment while growing. How sweet is that! The company itself uses only recycled paper and packaging, they offset the eco-footprint of their employees and their offices too!
The Journey Yoga Mat comes in 4 colors and costs around $39, in addition to receiving a wonderful yoga mat your purchase will plant 1 tree that continues the companies zero impact mission. It sounds like a win-win to me. Check out their site for more information: www.naturalfitnessinc.com
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you, each purchase comes with a Free yoga DVD! Whoa!
