Learn about the environmental impact of your yoga mat.

The yoga mat is by far the most iconic and foundational of all yoga gear. The majority of yogis wouldn’t consider practicing without one, and global demand is now estimated at an eye-popping 36-million mats purchased each year. This enormous appetite costs yogis about 1.2 billion USD annually, but the true cost can’t be summed up in dollars alone. Producing, using and disposing of so many mats also takes a heavy toll on our planet, something many practitioners are totally unaware of.
