RATED #1 BY THE NEW YORK TIMES For Environmentally Friendly Yoga Mats

The Original Eco Yoga Mat is simply one of the best and most earth-conscious yoga mats available today. The Original Eco Mat is composed exclusively of all-natural rubber* and jute fiber. There are no chemical additives used. It is excellent for any consistent practice of Yoga. Its rubber underside grips the floor while the jute fabric/rubber mix on top offers superb traction - even in a heavy sweat. It is a highly durable, tactile, and pleasantly natural surface to practice on -- and might remind you of walking barefoot on the earth.

Wonderful Mat
I have used this mat at least three times a week for over three years now. I am tough on my mat, practicing a variety of styles from Yin to Baptiste in heated rooms. In order to preserve the life of my mat, I utilize a towel in the heated classes in which I sweat profusely. I have noticed the wear and tear resulting from such intense use, but I am deeply satisfied with the quality and durability of the mat, and recommend a non-slip towel be employed in sweaty yoga practices to preserve the longevity of ANY style of mat. My only complaint is the weight of the mat; I bicycle to teach and take classes, and as wonderful as the jute material is, it is a little heavy. So I may end up purchasing a lightweight mat for travel purposes. Bottom line -- with due attention and care, I am certain this mat will last another three years, if not longer.

Awesome mat. Falls apart and needs replacing.
I have been using this brand of mat since sometime before 2006 (oldest email receipt I can find and I bought 2 so was already digging them). The extra long version is awesome for anyone over 6ft. I absolutely love the mat for the first three months of daily practice. Then as the mat starts to degrade causing the rubber to flake and chunk off onto my clothes and onto the studio floor I start to like it less every week. Eventually the hand and foot spots are worn too thin and the mat shedding becomes unbearable, somewhere around a year. Then it's time to buy another.
This is why I rate the value and price so low... I have to replace them often. Wonderful mat, very expensive, short life.
I always wonder if the frequent replacement requirement overrides the green materials/breakdown through impact of the manufacturing and shipping process. Who knows. I keep buying them.

I will definitely buy another.
I've owned mine for 9 months and practice everyday. It's worn down to the jute fibers. I love this mat it feels so earthy. Great cushioning, and never slip . The only bummer is it self degrades and my shirt is covered with the natural rubber when I'm done practicing.

The perfect mat
No other mat compares. Not only is it super eco friendly but it feels amazing on the feet/body. It’s the perfect amount of thickness & I love the natural feel. You truly feel as if you’re touching earth. Love it!! I will never purchase another mat.

Perfect Yoga Mat
This is the perfect yoga mat! The stick the mat provides is PERFECT and the thickness I would think would be enough for most people. It also looks super nice (I have the lavander) and I love it's eco-friendly. Review by Jessisa / (Posted on 11/9/2017)
