This eco-friendly yoga mat is made from 3/16" natural rubber. This sustainable yoga mat offers extra cushioning even when compared to the 1/4' thick PVC mat.
Jade Harmony natural rubber yoga mats are made of open cell, natural dry rubber that can be trusted where safety demands a non-slip performance! This non-toxic yoga mat takes advantage of the non-slip properties of the natural rubber resulting in the best slip-resistant mat on the market.
Another benefit of using this Jade Harmony yoga mat during practice is knowing that even when damp from perspiration the traction of the natural rubber offers unequaled non-slip performance. The mat has sturdy mesh in its interior, which provides stability and makes it tear-resistant.
This high quality natural yoga mat is made in the USA by Jade Yoga and will last for years if maintained properly. A useful tip to ensure the life of your sustainable yoga mat: Keep it out of the sun because the natural rubber that it is made of is photodegradable. This means that the UV rays from the sun will damage the mat. Excessive heat may also affect the composition of this mat so be cautious when leaving in the trunk of your car on hot summer days.
The natural rubber, a renewable resource, is sustainably harvested. These eco-friendly yoga mats do not include the latex component from trees or any ozone depleting substances. We think these factors make this the best eco-friendly yoga mat for yoga practitioners, who are especially concerned about preserving the environment. Jade Yoga is also a partner with Trees for the Future and after every Jade Harmony natural rubber yoga mat purchased, a tree will be planted in the rainforest. Does it get any more ‘green’ than that?

A Special Message From Jade Yoga:
Buy a Mat. We Plant a Tree. ~~ from Jade Yoga
"While it has always been our goal to make the best performing yoga mat on the market and we are very proud that Harmony is made with natural rubber, a renewable resource, contains no PVC or ozone depleting substances and is made in the United States in compliance with US environmental laws -- we felt we could and should do even more. We looked for a partner to help us give back to the earth and found Trees for the Future to be the right choice. What we like about Trees for the Future is that they work with local communities on projects that are environmentally and economically sustainable. They are not about going in and dictating what they are going to do, doing it and walking away. They engage the local community which leads to a project that can continue long after Trees for the Future has left. Trees for the Future works to develop and implement programs to improve living standards for the participants, by the careful management, rather than the exploitation, of our natural resources. Through this partnership with Trees for the Future, we plant a tree for every yoga mat we sell."
