Benefits of Cork
Sweat More for Extra Grip
Cork provides a superior non-slip surface for a better stretch. Cork contains a natural waxy substance that doesn’t absorb water but actually improves grip when wet. So basically, the sweatier…the better! Perfect for hot yoga classes.
Antimicrobial & Self Cleaning
Cork is naturally antibacterial, antifungal, and antimicrobial! This means it inhibits bacteria, mold & fungal growth – meaning minimal upkeep required.
No Smelly Odor
Cork’s self-cleaning properties mean a super fresh smelling mat all the time. No smelly yoga towels or antibacterial sprays needed. Just unroll your mat and fearlessly step into downward dog!
No Chemicals, No Worries
Cork contains zero PVC’s, TPE or any other harmful chemicals that impose on your practice.
A Sustainable Choice
No trees are harmed! Cork is harvested every 8-9 years from the regenerative bark of cork oak trees. That means they are never cut down + live up to 200+ years!
Did you know cork oak trees stripped of their bark actually absorb 3-5x more carbon dioxide + release more oxygen? It is estimated that every year cork oak forests retain up to 14 million tonnes of carbon dioxide, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the main cause of climate change.
Durable and Made to Last
Cork is a very durable yoga mat surface, cork flooring is a popular choice for many gyms and studios because of its durability and added cushion. So be prepared to have your cork yoga mat hanging around for a long time!
As well as providing a vital source of income for more than 100,000 people, these landscapes also support one of the highest levels of biodiversity among forest habitats – on par with the Amazon or Andes.
Eco-Friendly, For Our Planet
Cork oak forests support one of the highest levels of biodiversity among forest habitats – on par with the Amazon and Andes.
This is a good sized mat for doing yoga. It says it works for hot yoga, but I haven't tested it. I really like that it is made from sustainable resources. The small design in the corner is good as it doesn't distract me from the poses I am attempting. I really liked the packaging of it as there was nothing that couldn't be reused or recycled. The only downside so far is that my hands often slide in certain yoga poses to the point where I cannot maintain the pose. I don't know if this is because I am washing my hands too frequently or if it is because of the cork itself. When this mat finally wears out, I will very likely purchase another cork one. No more plastic.
