ecoYoga has been awarded Ethical Accreditation membership. Scotland based company, ecoYoga ltd, have been supplying their UK made yoga mats since 2003. Their motivation is to provide an alternative to the oil-based plastic mats mass-made in Asia that dominate the market and offer something more in line with the philosophy of yoga; something more natural, simple and sustainable whilst still functional. Their ecoYoga mats are made from two plant-based ingredients: a hessian (jute fabric) scrim and 100% aqueous natural rubber in conjunction with naturally occurring mineral filler and fatty acid soaps. Approximately 1.5% of the total composition accounts for the man made dispersions which meet EU (European Union) standards and are regarded as environmentally neutral. No synthetic substances are used to cheapen or ease the manufacturing process.
