Jade mats are made sustainably with natural rubber tapped from rubber trees, a renewable resource that contains no PVC, EVA, or other synthetic rubber, making the mat biodegradable. The yoga mat also is wide and thick, providing the right level of traction.
Because Jade mats come from trees, they decided to partner up with Trees for the Future to plant a tree for every mat sold. So far they have planted 800,000 trees. Their impact goes way beyond the environmental cause, as they donate to ovarian cancer research, early detection, improved treatment and public education of the disease.
The mats are made in the US under fair trade conditions and in compliance with the environmental, labor and consumer protection laws.
