Our Sustainability Story

Our vision is to create a better world for the next generation by offering products that are kind to the earth. We create vibrant, high-performance yoga mats and accessories using sustainable materials and working with factories who are socially responsible. While we understand the impossibility of leaving no environmental footprint, we are committed to doing our best to tread as lightly as we can. Here are some of the ways we do it:

Recycled Microfiber

We proudly use Recycled PET in a variety of our products in order to help keep plastic out of oceans and landfills. We repurpose old plastic bottles into an ultra-absorbent microfiber material used in our Combo Mats, Towels, Bags, and Bolsters.

Using R-PET is not only good for the environment, but this "suede-like" material offers amazing grip, absorption and cozy softness to our yoga products.

To date, we've diverted over 861,000 plastic bottles (and counting!)

Renewable Cork

Our Cork mats, wheels, and blocks are made using the outer bark of the cork oak tree. Cork trees are the only trees in the world that regenerate stripped bark… meaning not a single tree is cut down to harvest cork. 

Instead, the bark is stripped by hand every 9 years to ensure each tree regenerates fully. What’s more, harvested cork oak trees can live up to 300 years. 

Cork is naturally anti-microbial (meaning it won't absorb odor and bacteria,) increases its grip the warmer it gets, and provides supportive, durable cushioning.

Natural Rubber

Experience the ultimate comfort and support during your yoga practice with Yoga Design Lab's mats.

Our mats have a sustainable, non-Amazonian natural tree rubber base layer that offers a springy ride to cushion and protect your joints. Whether you're practicing inversions, balances or flows, our mats provide stable and supportive grip for every pose.

Unlike foam base layers, natural rubber stays put on the floor and provides denser cushioning for optimal performance. Make your practice more comfortable and eco-friendly with Yoga Design Lab's mats.

Down to the Details Rubber

We use non-toxic, water-based inks to print our product designs.

We are updating our packaging to use recycled kraft paper labels and boxes, and are actively working to minimize packaging.

While we aren’t perfect, we strive to find solutions that are better for our planet and our community in everything we do.
