4 ways to Green Your Yoga
You may be able to balance in Crane Pose, but your yoga equipment could be on shaky ground with the earth. Enlighten your eco-consciousness with environmentally friendly yoga gear.
Most traditional sticky mats contain PVC (polyvinylchloride), a potentially toxic plastic. Also consider eco-safe mat detergent and yoga accessories.
Look for clothes made from hemp, bamboo, or organic cotton. These options are grown with little if any chemical assistance so are healthier for you and the planet
Make "going to yoga" part of your yoga. Many of us don't have this option, but a good walk or bike ride before and after can prepare you for your session and minimize carbon emissions.
Reduce the waste of disposable plastic water bottles going to landfills, by bringing your own reusable bottle to the yoga studio.
