The Manduka eKO Eco Yoga Mat

 Have you heard of the Manduka eKO Yoga Mats? Bet you will start hearing their name more and more! These eco yoga mats are completely awesome, high quality, and worth the $65 for the amazing quality these mats provide.

Made from non-Amazon harvested, natural Most durable, eco-friendly mat on the market Developed over 3 years by yoga teachers Designed to provide the ultima..

Manduka offers something new for us eco-conscious yoga practitioners. The eKo Mat is a natural rubber, closed-cell mat that is designed for durability and comfort. Plus, this mat will decompose completely at the end of its useful life without leaving a footprint on earth!

Through their patented manufacturing process, the natural rubber in Manduka's mats is 99.99% latex free and non-allergenic. There also are no oil-based products in the eKO Yoga Mat.

These mats are completely free of toxic materials, foaming agents and plasticizers, commonly found in other eco mats, such as TPE, POE, and other rubber mats. Not many natural yoga mat manufacturers are able to make this same claim!

This makes it truly an eco-friendly mat, 100%. This Manduka eKO Mat is also longer, wider and thicker than the average size yoga mat, providing more practice area.

Currently this yoga ego mat is available in four colors: moss, lava, aqua, and sand.

I give this eco yoga mat 5 stars, without any reservations. Manduka is excellent all around!
