Have yourself a Merry Conscious Christmas!
What makes these mats and accessories so different? Luxurious and absorbent sueded microfiber (made of recycled plastic bottles!) is bonded to a natural tree rubber base giving you the sweaty grip of a towel and the cushion of a yoga mat. Not only that, the mats are also printed using water based inks and are biodegradable!
However, it's not just the mats from Yoga Design Lab that are conscious. Their accessories such as their straps and blocks are also printed with the same water based inks, they recyclable.
Blending fashion-forward design elements with innovative functionality and bio-renewable consciousness is key to the Yoga Design Lab approach. From their insulated stainless steel water bottles (reduce your use of plastic water bottles please!), to the hot yoga mats comprised of biodegradable natural tree rubber, to the water based inks used in our printed designs, we can all make a difference with the products we buy!
"The world's most eco-friendly reusable water bottle with a purpose"
Firstly, Yuhme water bottles are made from 100% sugarcane which is a renewable resource that is CO2 negative and fully recyclable. The bottles are free from all toxins such as Bisphenol A, Phthalates, and additives. But in our opinion, the most important thing about Yuhme bottles is that for each bottle sold, someone in the Central African Republic is provided with clean water for six months via Yuhme's partners; Water For Good.
According to Wateraid there is over 650million people who lack access to safe water, with a further 2.3 billion who don't have access to adequate sanitation. The vast majority of these live in sub-saharan Africa and the water crisis is just one of many issues facing the most neglected people on this planet. Whilst we can't solve all the problems these people face on a daily basis, we must start somewhere and access to clean water and sanitation allows people to start putting their efforts into other areas. For example, children into school because they don't need to walk great distances to fetch dirty water that then only makes them sick with amebic dystenery, hep A, Cholera and Typhoid. It's time for us all to stand up for these people because that is exactly what they are, people!
