We love our corner of the planet and we're super keen to nurture it. 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 impact on the planet. Yin yoga mats are completely free from PVC, plastic, phthalates and toxic chemicals. Our yoga mats are manufactured from natural tree rubber that is sustainably captured in Sri Lanka via a process called rubber tapping. This process does not harm the tree and does not require any culling of forest or vegetation. Natural tree rubber is recyclable, and also biodegradable meaning it can be disposed of in either landfill or incineration without environmental damage. Our yoga mats are also shipped without any soft plastic. We ship via recycled (and recyclable) cardboard boxes without any single use plastic. If you have any questions related to our manufacturing process or the sustainability of our yoga mats, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
