LovEarth Natural Rubber and Jute, Eco-Friendly, PVC Free Yoga Mats
I was so excited to be able to practice yoga on one of these fabulous new, LovEarth Natural Rubber and Jute, Eco-Friendly, PVC Free Yoga Mats. I have always hated the fact that while I was doing a downward facing dog, I was breathing in the toxic off-gases from either PVC mats, or the and other various synthetic chemicals that many plastic, exercise mats are made from.
LovEarth have created fantastic eco friendly yoga mats. They are made from natural and sustainable materials, which are completely free of PVC, TPE, PER and toxic chemicals. Plus these yoga mats are biodegradable, which means healthier for you and the planet!
It stands to reason that when you have your face pressed against an exercise mat, you want to know that it is made out of “safe” materials and free from hazardous and carcinogenic components; e.g PVC which releases toxic dioxins. After all isn’t the whole purpose of exercising to keep healthy? It doesn’t makes sense that your exercise mat could be compromising what you are setting out to achieve…good health!
LovEarth mats are truly superior, exercise mats. They offer a cushioned, slip free surface. They are completely free of hazardous chemical dyes and glues.
*FACT – PVC has earned the title of being one of the most unhealthy and hazardous plastics on the planet. From its production phase, throughout its lifecycle and through to it ending up either being incinerated, or in landfill, it continually gives off highly carcinogenic dioxins. These dioxins are due to the phthalates used to make it. These phthalates, dioxins and other synthetic chemicals cause major environmental pollution and illness.
LovEarth truly are on a commendable mission! They are working hard to try and abolish the production of synthetic exercise mats, through offering fantastic incentives to encourage people to upgrade to their far superior and healthier mat. For instance LovEarth has partnered with Yoga Hive and when you buy a LovEarth mat, you receive a free Yoga Hive Pass.
Also LovEarth has a fantastic up-cycle program . Trade in your old PVC exercise mat through one of LovEarth’s many drop off centers and LovEarth will up-cycle your old mat.
