This eco-friendly travel yoga mat is a longer version of the original Jade Travel Mat. This 74" long natural rubber mat is also thin, which helps with easy transport. The 1/8" thickness of these travel yoga mats make them lighter-weight and travel-friendly, and offers great stability on most floors.
These eco-friendly travel mats are made of natural rubber that is naturally dry and sustainably harvested from well cared for rubber trees. They do not include the latex component from the tree, yet still offer the durability and traction during your yoga poses.
Even when this travel yoga mat is wet from perspiration the traction is excellent, offering unequaled non-slip performance. The mat has sturdy mesh in its interior, which provides stability and is tear-resistance.
This travel exercise mat is made in the USA by top yoga brand Jade Yoga.
We advise that you keep your eco-friendly travel mat out of the sun because the natural rubber is photodegradable. Excessive heat may also affect the composition of this mat, so please be cautious when leaving in the trunk of your car on hot summer days.
Interestingly enough, natural rubber is a renewable resource tapped from rubber trees and contains no ozone-depleting substances. This travel exercise mat is such a great option for yoga practitioners concerned about the environment and sustainability. As an added plus, a tree is planted in the rainforest with every purchase!

Hand wash with cold water and mild soap. Rinse thoroughly and hang or lay flat and allow to dry completely. Avoid exposure to direct and indirect sunlight and to excessive heat.

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."
