The comfortably cushioned eKO® Lite yoga mat has a natural rubber grip that catches you if you start to slip. With its eco-friendly construction, this non-Amazon harvested natural tree rubber mat supports both your practice and our planet.

  • most durable natural rubber yoga mat on the market 
  • no PVC or harmful plasticisers 
  • made from biodegradable, non-Amazon harvested, natural tree rubber with non-toxic foaming agents and non-AZO dyes
  • 99% latex free
  • all post-industrial scrap is thoughtfully collected and utilised in the production of other materials creating a zero waste manufacturing process

 

To Clean: All eKO series mats can be cleaned by wiping down the mat with Manduka’s Mat Restore Spray (a vinegar based solution) or a 50/50 mixture of water and organic apple cider vinegar. It is recommended that you DO NOT put your eKO mat in the washing machine, as it will encourage the material to break down. DO NOT soak or submerge in water and DO NOT use any type of soap for cleaning, as it will compromise the performance and integrity of the mat.

To Store: Do not leave the mat exposed to direct sunlight. If wet, allow the mat to dry before rolling up

 

Not as environmentally sustainable as I'd hoped
I have just received this mat which appears to be good quality and I look forward to using it, but it's really let down by the packaging. The main reason I chose this particular mat is that it appeared to have the least environmental impact, so when it arrived wrapped in several layers of thick plastic, I was really disappointed. Though Yoga Matters are selling an 'eco' product, it makes me think they just paying lip-service rather than having a genuine will to look after the planet; there are lots of much less damaging packing options, including rubber-based adhesive tapes. Hopefully the mat will last well and go some way to redeeming itself. If Yoga Matters can advise me whether my huge bundle of plastic can be recycled, I would very much appreciate it?
Nice mat for suicidal yogis
I'm an Iyengar yoga teacher and this mat is simply dangerous: it wore out at the places my feet are the most of the time when I'm teaching standing poses, so that at these spot it grips fine, while everywhere else it's so slippery I risk my life every time I spread my legs to take a pose (about one hundred times a week). The other side of the mat has a very good grip, but since the other side is slippery, the mat moves all the time on the floor like a skate board. I don't recommend it, at least for those who make a lot of standing poses with feet always at the same place! Note that I never washed this mat and treated it with all precautions. It's the first time I see such a poor quality for such a huge price...:(

I got the mat in sage and its a gorgeous deep green! Its super super sticky and keeps me in place in a general sweaty class. However i sweat LOADS in hot yoga! I always have a huge puddle on my mat but because the mat doesn't absorb it so I still need a towel in hot yoga but i do sweat A LOT! The rubbery smell went after leaving out unrolled over night. It's still slightly there when you get close to the mat but nothing to strong!

I got the sage and its gorgeous deep green! Super super super sticky! I sweat loads in hot yoga so still need a towel over the top but in a general sweaty practise keeps me in place! The rubbery smell goes after leaving out unrolled over night. Still a slight smell but nothing major.
