Buy a Mat, Plant a Tree
A short and sweet blog for ya today benefitting us and the planet!
I'm excited to announce I'm a Jade Yoga Ambassador because I love what this company is about! The company is eco-friendly, sustainable, and the mats are non-toxic. In our yoga teacher training, our teacher always practiced with towels on his mat. I assumed it was to not slip, or not slip from sweating. He told us it was because all yoga mats are toxic unless they are rubber. We spend so much time on our mats while we exercise, stretch and do yoga. I feel so much better knowing my largest organ, my skin, is practicing on a non-toxic mat.
Tapped from rubber trees, natural rubber is a renewable resource, and Jade Yoga mats are made in the United States in compliance with U.S. environmental laws and contain no PVCs - making the mats the first "green" and non-toxic yoga mats.
As Jade mats come from trees, they decided to give back by planting a tree for every mat sold. And since 2006, through their partnership with Trees for the Future, they have done just that, planting over 1,465,289 trees so far!
Jade mats provide a superior level of traction, making them the best gripping mats on the market. All of us in yoga teacher training agreed the Jade brand kept us more in place than any of the other yoga mats.
