Yoga might seem like a way to connect with nature, but the mat you’re practicing your downward-facing dog on could be made of materials harmful to the environment.
The Natural Fitness Eco-smart Yoga Kit is about as green as you can go. In addition to using eco-friendly materials, the company plants a tree for every product sold, each of which can remove up to 2,000 pounds of pollution from the atmosphere. This helps offset the footprint of production, transportation and the company’s offices.
The kit includes a mat made of polymer environmental resin, a non-toxic material that provides traction and cushion; a biodegradable and compostable cork block; hemp strap, made of a disease- and insect-resistant fiber (which eliminates the need for pesticides) that is biodegradable, compostable and recyclable; and a aluminum bottle, to prevent plastic bottles from ending up in the landfill.
Looking to green your workout? Look no more. The Natural Fitness yoga kit is available from Best Buy for $49.99.
