Product Comparison:

PVC (Poly-Vinyl Chloride) yoga mat
  • Lowest cost mat available
  • Material¬†isn‚Äôt eco-friendly.
  • You cannot recycle the PVC yoga mat.
  • The mat¬†releases¬†toxic chemicals¬†when being manufactured (that "new yoga mat" smell is the result of these chemicals)
    • Chemicals such as volatile oil compounds and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are emitted as a breathable gas from PVC yoga mats. These chemicals can cause headaches, nausea and dizziness, nasal irritation, allergic reactions, neurological problems, liver and kidney damage, cancer, and possibly even fertility problems and miscarriage.¬†
TPE (Thermal Plastic Elastomer) yoga mat
  • The material is¬†less harmful¬†to the environment than PVC yoga mat materials.
  • While it contains no PVC or latex, it‚Äôs still manufactured using heat and chemical processes
  • TPE yoga mats with open cells can dry out after some time.
  • Has a¬†large carbon footprint
Cotton/Jute yoga mat
  • The production of cotton has a¬†high environmental impact¬†due to the use of pesticides, fertilizers, and the use of huge amounts of water.
  • Jute is a rain-fed crop with little need for fertilizer or pesticide, in contrast to cotton‚Äôs heavy requirements
  • Cotton and jute are¬†biodegradable¬†and natural resources
  • The natural fibers can be a bit coarse to the skin
Rubber yoga mat Natural rubber:
  • Made from natural materials (comes from rubber trees) - as long as it is sustainably sourced, it is¬†eco-friendly
  • Balanced density - it isn‚Äôt too hard, yet not too soft.
  • If you are sensitive to latex, there is a risk of an allergic reaction.
  • It is very heavy

Synthetic rubber:
  • Synthetic rubber (NBR) has high performance and durability but leaves a¬†prominent carbon footprint¬†(it does¬†not come from rubber trees,¬†synthetic rubbers are polymers synthesized from petroleum byproducts)
Cork + Rubber yoga mat
  • Cork is a¬†sustainable resource¬†- it is both renewable and biodegradable. The cork oak tree is unique in that its thick bark can be stripped off every decade to extract the cork without damaging the trees, which can live 170 to 250 years on average
  • Cork provides a naturally good grip that improves as it absorbs moisture
  • Naturally antimicrobial¬†and easy to keep clean
  • Natural¬†rubber pairs well with cork since it helps with durability and density
  • Non-toxic, no chemicals
