Prana Natural Yoga Mat â€“ eco-friendly natural rubber mat
Like the Jade Harmony Yoga Mat, the Prana Natural Yoga Mat is made from 100% natural rubber. Many yoga mats are made from PVC, a highly polluting and toxic type of plastic, which pretty much goes against all Yoga ethics. No worries here, the Prana Natural mat is free of all hazardous materials, plus it is biodegradable too.
With 4mm of cushion, the Prana Natural Mat offers plenty of comfort during workouts and the natural rubber material offers a sticky surface for your practice. A new two-cotton scrim construction makes the mat super strong and stable, and less likely to stretch during your practice.
The Prana Natural Mat is available in plenty of soothing colors like Fern and Wisteria. The mat is a bit bulkier than lesser quality mats, but thatâ€™s the trade-off for choosing an eco-friendly mat. Oh and Prana also makes super super cute printed yoga bags.

I was quite surprised too find out how not eco-friendly many of the yoga mats are out there. When I purchased my first mat, I didnâ€™t even consider the materials that went into the creation of the mat. When I wear out my current mat, I am definitely going to go with one of these natural rubber mats.
