!! Important note: the bottom layer of our yoga mats are made of EPDM rubber, a very light, practical rubber and made in Portugal. Indeed, it is not natural rubber and it is not the most ecological material we are using.
However, we are not convinced natural rubber is so much better than the foam rubber we’re using. First of all, rubber trees are planted & harvested far far away, in Asia or Brazil, usually under unknown circumstances.
But more importantly, land is being cleared (=trees are cut down) in order to plant these rubber trees. Deforestation creates habitat loss for many plant and animal species. This is for us absolutely not sustainable, so we don’t wish to engage in this process.

We want to be very transparent about this. We’re looking into alternatives to both our foam rubber and the natural rubber and are currently testing with recycled rubber and dandelion.
