Yoga is a beautiful practice with incredible benefits for both our physical and mental health - from managing stress to improving strength, balance and flexibility. But have you thought about the products you’re using for your daily yoga ritual?
Sadly, there are many yoga products on the market created with harmful plastics. While these plastics are cheap and efficient, they can have major environmental impacts. Yoga mats made with harmful plastics are unable to be recycled, and the material has even been found to leak toxic chemicals into the soil and air over time when disposed of in landfill.
Luckily, there are some great sustainable alternatives when it comes to yoga mats, balls and other accessories. Keep reading for 3 of the best eco-friendly yoga products below!
Biodegradable yoga mat
Our biodegradable yoga mats are ideal for yoga, pilates and other floor exercises. These lightweight mats have a specially designed non-slip pattern for excellent traction, while the low compression set foam provides maximum cushioning and support.
Most importantly, our long-lasting yoga mats are completely free from PVC, latex and natural rubber, making them biodegradable and recyclable.
Eco-friendly yoga ball
Increase muscle flexibility, strengthen your core and improve your balance with a fitness yoga ball! Lightweight and easily portable, our eco-friendly yoga ball is non-toxic and burst resistant, available in purple, pink, black and green. You can use these yoga balls to support specific positions during your yoga practice, or even swap them out with your office chair to help prevent lower back pain. Yoga balls like this one are also ideal for gentle bouncing and rhythmic movements during pregnancy and birth.

Our eco-friendly yoga block supports are soft and durable, made from a high-quality and scratch-resistant foam for a smooth grip. We love using these foam blocks to support stiff muscles and to achieve new stretches and yoga positions while looking after your body.
