Hong Kong– While one of the main principles of yoga is getting in touch with one’s environment, and respecting nature, there is one ever-present component used throughout yoga practice that comes in direct conflict with these beliefs: the yoga mat.
Made from toxic, bio-accumulative PVC, the majority of yoga mats are unhealthy, unhygienic, and a veritable danger to the environment.
Understanding the need for a sustainable alternative, clesign created a yoga mat, using natural rubber and cork. Inherently free of PVC and PU, the clesign Yoga Mat makes for a pioneering product in the fitness accessory industry, as it caters to the needs of the ever-growing audience of environmentally conscious consumers and yoga enthusiasts.
Commenting on the creation of the clesign Yoga Mat, the company’s founder said “My inspiration came from my memories of my grandparents’ beautiful backyard in Taiwan. However, it wasn’t until 40 years later that we started researching how to create what came to be the clesign Yoga Mat. We sourced materials from three countries – Morocco, Southern Italy and Portugal – and performed testing for over 5 years. We even had professional yoga instructors try out our mat during their sessions, to assure its endurance during actual workout conditions. We’re proud to say that the final result, has exceeded our expectations, and has gained a large following by yogis around the world.”
In line with its environmentally-friendly principles, clesign “plants a tree for every 2 clesign natural rubber mat sold, and a palm tree in Morocco for every 10 eco-polyurethane clesign professional yoga mat sold.”
So far, the company has planted a total of 20,601 tress, while, the booming sales of its cornerstone products are sure to lead to even more tree plantings in the near future.
