A strong environmental focus is at the core of yin.
Our mission is to create a yoga brand that brings awareness to human and environmental issues, in particular the use of PVC and plastic and their disastrous impact on the planet. Take a look around and feel free to reach out: email@example.com
Is everything eco-friendly?
Yoga mats are manufactured from sustainable natural tree rubber ~ no PVC, silicone, phthalates and no single-use plastic. Our activewear collection is crafted from honest materials such as regenerated nylon, cotton and hemp.
What is regenerated nylon?
Our activewear is crafted from ECONYL recycled nylon: made from 78% recycled polyester and 22% elastane. ECONYL uses synthetic waste such as industrial plastic, waste fabric and reclaimed fishing nets.
Is regenerated nylon actually good for the environment?
ECONYL helps clean up our waterways and repurpose trash that would otherwise end up in landfill. The process of regeneration is a closed loop system using less water and less waste than traditional nylon production.
What can I do about microfibres?
There is just one teeny problem with using regenerated nylon: microfibres. These tiny plastic particles are released when washing any synthetic fibres, including ECONYL. It’s best to use a wash bag when its time to wash your goods as this can filter any microfibres and stop them from entering your grey water and causing environmental damage.
How do you package your products?
We use 100% recycled materials for our shipping mailers and boxes. Movement is wrapped in home-compostable bags to help eliminate single-use plastic waste.
Where do you manufacture?
Our yoga mats and activewear collection is manufactured in China. Our facilities specialise in eco-friendly textiles and production and guarantee fair wages, safe and healthy conditions for their employees and no forced or child labour.
Why China and not Australia?
Some of the best manufacturers for high-performance fabrics are located overseas. Quality is everything and after researching the capabilities within Australia we made the decision to manufacture offshore.
How much is Australian shipping?
Shipping is free to anywhere in Australia.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, we currently ship to the US & Canada. You can checkout as per normal and select either US or Canada when entering your address. All movement orders are a flat rate of $15 AUD and yoga mat orders are $50 AUD. Please note that due to the size and weight of our yoga mats, shipping is very expensive internationally. For all other international shipping enquiries, please reach out for a quote: firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you offer returns?
Our activewear can be exchanged within 7 days of purchase. If you are wishing to exchange please reach out to email@example.com. Please note that postage back to us is at your own cost. For hygiene reasons, there are no refunds or exchanges on yoga mats.
