Peace. Balance. Love. These are words we often associate with yoga. But are we really bringing these intentions onto our mats? While our classes might promote the practice of peace, balance, and love, our yoga gear often supports the opposite. And while many seek out yoga for their health, they don’t know they may actually be putting it at risk with toxic mats, water bottles, and sanitizers.
Fortunately, there are people out there making earth-friendly yoga gear—and at Rodale’s, we’re proud to help promote these vendors’ missions and products. So keep calm and yoga on, because our favorite ecofriendly yoga essentials will help bring true peace, balance, and love to your practice.
Exclusive to Rodale’s, this yoga travel kit includes antiaging cleanser, moisturizer, and mist, as well as a hand-sanitizing spray that also sanitizes your yoga mat. Each product is GMO free, with certified-organic ingredients, and is packaged in 100-percent-recyclable containers.
Don’t slip while you sweat with this super-absorbent yoga mat towel, made using recycled plastic bottles (keeping them out of our oceans!) and recycled polyester, and colored safely with nontoxic dye. This protective towel not only keeps your mat dry, but the dotted underside also prevents sliding while you practice hot yoga.
Kick your plastic habit and keep hydrated during your practice with this portable water bottle made from food-grade stainless steel that’s free of BPA, phthalates, lead, and other toxins.
These non-slip grip socks are made from organic cotton. Their manufacturer, Natural Fitness, also plants one tree for every product sold.
Made from sustainably grown hemp, this ecofriendly sturdy yoga strap allows you to improve flexibility and intensify your practice by deepening your poses. By taking the stress off joints and muscles, the strap also helps you ease into dynamic stretches and hold poses for longer.
