We have just tried our new yoga mat by Cork Space and we are absolutly loving it. The grip of the yoga mat is fantastic and the sustainibility factor is simply outstanding. Not only is this new yoga mat 100% recyclable, but it is made from the natural and sustainable materials of cork bark from cork oaks and natural rubber from the rubber tree. Another positive point is that cork bark is sustainably harvested in Portugal without harming or cutting down any trees that can grow to the ripe old age of 300 years. Cork harvesting is not only safe, it helps the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Cork trees also help to fight global warming as the cork tree grows back its bark - moreover, it absorbs up to 3.5 times more CO2 in regrowing its bark than it would otherwise. The natural rubber originates from the Hevea brasiliensis tree. However this it not all, Cork Space also does not use any glues plastics or any harmful chemicals, which is good for our health too! This is not a given as there are still a lot of yoga mats around which are made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) or have traces of it. PVC is not only harmful for the environment, as yoga mats containing it release for example dioxin, but also toxic and cancerous for our health as other toxins such as endocrine-disrupting phthalates and heavy metals are being used to make the yoga mats more durable, robust, and non-slip.
