8 Best Eco Friendly Yoga Gear Items

1. Natural Jute Recyclable Yoga Mat


This eco-friendly yoga mat is natural, recyclable and vegan friendly. It is made from natural jute fiber, which is a vegetable fiber that is similar in texture to cotton. Plus, for every mat sold the company promises to plant a tree.

This recyclable yoga mat also comes with its own bag so you can carry it to your local studio or on vacation. The sling on the bag is made of cotton, and it doubles as a strap.

The recyclable yoga mat features dual layers for solid grip and is non-slip.

As a nice bonus, the mat is anti-bacterial and what the manufacturer calls “non smelly”, although they do recommend washing it regularly anyway.

2. Vintage Recyclable Yoga Mat Bag

This recyclable yoga mat bag is made unique every time. So when you buy one you know that it is uniquely yours. That’s because it is made of recycled patches of vintage batik cotton. It’s also handmade so it has that authentic feel.

It’s 26” long by 7” diameter so it is plenty large enough to carry most yoga mats (see the recyclable yoga mat above).

It features an adjustable strap sling making it easy to carry.  And there are two large storage pockets where you can put your bottles and maybe some snacks.

3. Teeki Mermair Recyclable Yoga Pants


With these mermaid recyclable yoga pants you’ll be able to look like part of the ocean while you are protecting that ocean.

These recyclable yoga pants have a high / low waist option and are elastic free so you don’t get that nasty “cutting into your skin” effect. They are great for hot yoga and you can also wear them on a night out too.

The material offers four-way stretch with breathable fabric, making the very comfortable.

This recyclable yoga block is made from foam and is highly durable and less squishy than most blocks.  They are noticeably higher quality than most other blocks.

You may have noticed that a lot of blocks do not provide much support for your body. This one is different. The Manduka recyclable yoga block supports the body well and will make you feel a lot more confident using it compared to lesser blocks.

8. Yoga Design Lab Combo Yoga Mat

We yogis are leading the way towards an eco-friendly, more sustainable Earth.

By choosing to purchase products that are made of recyclable materials, we are helping to protect mother nature.

Let’s show how much love we have for our planet and choose to live green!
