The rubber trees used to make our mats are grown in southern Thailand, where the climate is ideal for rubber production. These trees are tapped for their sap, which is then processed into natural rubber. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that the rubber is sourced in an environmentally friendly manner, using sustainable harvesting practices. By doing so, we can ensure that the rubber trees continue to grow and provide a renewable resource for future generations.
We also prioritize fair labor practices in our sourcing process. That's why we work directly with local Thai communities to source our rubber, ensuring that workers are paid fairly for their work and that they work in safe and healthy conditions. We believe that the people involved in the production of our mats should be treated fairly and with respect, and we strive to uphold these values in all aspects of our business.
Our commitment to sustainability goes beyond the materials we use. We also prioritize affordability to ensure that everyone has access to a high-quality yoga mat. We believe that sustainability and affordability are not mutually exclusive, and we strive to find a balance between both.
When it comes to functionality, our mats are designed with the yogi in mind. They offer excellent grip, even during the sweatiest of practices, and provide thick, supportive cushioning for the joints. Our mats are biodegradable, which means that they can be composted at the end of their life cycle, leaving no trace in the environment.
In short, at Mocana Yoga, we take great pride in producing yoga mats that are sustainable, affordable, functional, and ethically sourced. We believe that through our commitment to these values, we can make a positive impact on the environment and the communities we work with, while also enhancing your yoga practice.
