A Healthy Choice Did you know that many conventional yoga mats contain a ton of harmful chemicals and toxins such as PVC and phthalates? These toxins have been well documented to cause cancer, damage the liver, respiratory and central nervous systems, and reproductive system just through inhalation and skin contact!
Cork Trees are Harvested, Not Cut Down Cork is made from the outer bark of the cork oak trees, not the tree itself. The bark is harvested from the tree every 9-12 years. These cork oak trees are the only trees in the world that naturally regenerate stripped bark, making it a highly sustainable resource.
Eco-Friendly & Sustainable Cork is a beautiful natural raw material and environmentally friendly. It is ethically sustainable, renewable, recyclable and 100% biodegradable. After the outer bark has been removed, the oak trees absorb more carbon dioxide, which leaves a positive impact on the environment. Therefore, there are enormous practical advantages of cork and that means it greatly outperforms its rubber and plastic counterparts.
Anti-Bacterial Cork is organically anti-bacterial, which naturally inhibits bacteria, mold and fungal growth. This makes it easier to keep clean than other materials and requires less maintenance than other mats. Therefore, cork provides the perfect clean and healthy surface for your yoga practice.
