we recognise our responsibility to do our part and look after the planet. it is no longer enough to simply offset your CO2 emissions. we need to do more progressive work to contribute to the wellbeing of our planet. we want to involve our customers in our efforts too, so we have teamed up with Tree Nation to plant a tree for every mat we sell. our aim is to provide organic, high quality products to yogis while also contributing to vital reforestation.
our mats are made from sustainably extracted natural rubber, which not only boasts fantastic benefits for your practice and your insides, but is kind to our planet too. when the time comes for you and your mat to part ways, simply dispose of it along with general waste, as it will biodegrade in landfill conditions in 2-5 years. this may seem like a long time, but comparing that to the almost 1000 years it takes for PVC mats to biodegrade, we think it's quite impressive.
some people don't fully understand the importance of trees. trees address some of the most threatening issues that we face today: pollution, species extinction, climate change, desertification, deforestation, floods, poverty, malnutrition and even deadly viruses. they are simply essential for our planet. we need to do more to slow down the rate of irreversible climate change.
Tree Nation are an amazing organisation who are dedicated to fighting climate change and deforestation. the organisation works with over 3000 companies, with 248 planting projects in 33 countries. Tree Nation have made the process of planting trees easy and user-friendly, making it difficult for anyone not to get involved. head over to their website to find out more about what they do.
once you place your order, you will receive a confirmation email from us. this will be followed by an email from Tree Nation informing you that yoga pieces has offered you a tree. if you don't see it in your inbox, please check your spam/junk folder. this email allows you to plant the tree in your own virtual forest. it will also give you more information on the species of tree you planted, its CO2 offset and what planting project you contributed to. as you purchase more from us and other companies who work with Tree Nation, you are able watch your forest grow and keep up to date with the progress.
