We provide cork yoga mats proudly made with earth’s renewable resources – cork surface and a natural tree rubber base. No more icky plastic or smelly rubber! Not convinced? Here are few more reasons cork will knock your socks off… literally!
NO CHEMICALS, NO WORRIES
Cork contains zero PVC’s, TPE or any other harmful chemicals that impose on your practice.
A SUSTAINABLE CHOICE
No trees are harmed! Cork is harvested every 8-9 years from the regenerative bark of cork oak trees. That means they are never cut down + live up to 200+ years! Did you know cork oak trees stripped of their bark actually absorb 3-5x more carbon dioxide + release more oxygen? It is estimated that every year cork oak forests retain up to 14 million tonnes of carbon dioxide, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the main cause of climate change.
As well as providing a vital source of income for more than 100,000 people, these landscapes also support one of the highest levels of biodiversity among forest habitats – on par with the Amazon or Andes.
ANTIMICROBIAL + SELF CLEANING
Cork is naturally antibacterial, antifungal, and antimicrobial! This means it inhibits bacteria, mold & fungal growth – meaning minimal upkeep required.
NO SMELLY ORDERS
Cork’s self-cleaning properties mean a super fresh smelling mat all the time. No smelly yoga towels or antibacterial sprays needed. Just unroll your mat and fearlessly step into downward dog!
MADE TO LAST
Cork is a very durable yoga mat surface, cork flooring is a popular choice for many gyms and studios because of its durability and added cushion. So be prepared to have your cork yoga mat hanging around for a long time!
One Tree Planted with every purchase, to give back to a planet that gives so tirelessly to us.
SWEAT MORE FOR EXTRA GRIP
Cork provides a superior non-slip surface for a better stretch. Cork contains a natural waxy substance that actually improves grip when wet. So basically, the sweatier…the better! Perfect for hot yoga classes.
