A comprehensive guide to Eco-Friendly, Non-Toxic Yoga Mats
Why does your yoga mat matter? Almost half of all yoga mats are made from Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), a substance that presents a number of problems - from the pollution it creates during manufacture and the risks its chemical additives can present, to the harmful effects its incineration can have in countries and states where trash is burned. This is why we decided to not include any PVC mats in our list, not even making an exception for Manduka’s PRO line, one of the most well-regarded mats in the world.
This comprehensive guide serves as a resource to choosing the correct mat for you and our environment.
