A Perfect Mat(ch)
Founded on the simple idea that a better yoga mat could make a world of difference, Manduka eKO™ yoga mats do just that. Made of natural tapped rubber, a sustainable and renewable material, the mats provide non-slip comfort and cushioning without exposing yogi’s to the chemicals found in conventional PVC mats.
Committed to using natural, recyclable and biodegradable materials in their products whenever possible, Manduka produces in Oeko-Tex certified production plants that produce zero toxic emissions. We’ve touted our love for natural rubber mats before, but we’ve been especially impressed by the closed-cell construction of Manduka’s eKO™ mats, which decreases the chance of bacteria (though we still recommend regular cleaning with an eco-friendly mat cleaner).
And when the mat has reached the end of it’s useful life, Manduka offers a Mat Recycling Kit ($5 with any mat purchase). The kit comes with a mat-sized shipping bag and pre-paid label to send the mat to an organization that will find a second life for it, whether reuse or mat reincarnation.
