Throughout our yogic journey, we have encountered many yogis, teachers, and studio owners who do not understand the negative impact of plastic pollution from PVC yoga mats and the detrimental effect they have on the Planet. To them, PVC yoga mats are attractive because they are either extremely cheap and easy to replace, or as some brands claim - will last a lifetime. In any of these cases PVC yoga mats will reach the end of Life and will end up as a waste. The disposal and recycling process for PVC is hazardous to various degrees, which makes this material far from being environmentally friendly.
Our moment of enlightenment came when we realized that over 300 million people across the world practice yoga. This means that hundreds of millions of plastic waste from discarded yoga mats fill landfills each year, and over a thousand more are produced each day to replace them, adding to environmental degradation and pollution.
From this realization, yogigo was conceived to inspire yogis to live a Mindful Yogic Lifestyle and encourage them to choose eco. We believe a pure yogic lifestyle is a wholesome journey of inspiration, and by putting our planet first, we can inspire other yogis to live eco.
