What inspired JadeYoga's to make eco-friendly yoga mats?
JadeYoga's development of the first green yoga mat might be described as an accident - as the goal was to develop the best functioning yoga mat available. Because natural rubber performs so much better than synthetic rubber (PVC, PER, TPE, EVA), those synthetic rubbers were never really an option. However, as a vegetarian and former lawyer for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency where I enforced environmental laws, I have tried to steer the company in a green direction. So rather than pat ourselves on the back for making the product with natural rubber (which performs better), they said they could and would do more.
The first thing they did was resist the temptation to move production to China - where almost all other yoga mats are made today. This decision was made easy after a 2005 chemical spill into the Songhua River in China - which the Chinese government tried to cover up, not even letting the people downstream drinking the water know of the risks. This was further reinforced with all the recent problems with toys and foods coming out of China (which almost killed my own cat). While dollar costs may be lower with mats made in China, it is just not worth it.
The second step was to commit to giving back to the earth with every mat sold. Jade mats are born from trees; so they decided to thank the trees by committing to plant a tree for every mat sold. And since 2006, through their partnership with Trees for the Future, they have done just that.
What are some projects JadeYoga's support and contributed to?
Not only does JadeYoga plant a tree for every mat sold, they also try to help out many very special people and organizations trying to bring yoga to those who might benefit from it, but might not otherwise have a chance to try - from a abused girls shelter in West Africa to a homeless shelter in Indianapolis to supporting educational programs for children from New York to California.
JadeYoga encourages everyone to think about what more they might do. Please see their "Supported Causes" page for some ideas.
Where does JadeYoga see the direction of the company going or continuing to go?
JadeYoga has a number of new yoga products in the pipeline that will be in alignment with their commitment to make high quality yoga products in an earth friendly way. Come back to the site soon to see what they have in mind.
