Yoga Monster Mat goes Eco! For those who want a more eco-friendly mat, our fantastic Yoga Monster Mat is now environmentally friendly. Our yoga mat is made of PER (Polymer Environmental Resin), which is a unique material that is sensitive to the environment and your health. This mat does not contain toxic phthalates, dioxins and furans, phenal, or heavy metals and has a ecologically safer method of production which is better for the workers and the environment – and most importantly it performs great for all types of yoga with excellent traction and cushion!
Why should you be concerned about exposure to Phthalates? Because phthalates have been linked to a variety of health problems including endocrine disruption, obesity, diabetes and allergies. Studies from many continents indicate serious toxicity and health problems due to phthalate plastizers found in consumer products. Common plastics, such as pvc foam used in typical yoga mats can contain 10% to 60% phthalates. Phthalates migrate to the surface of the mat over time and use which increases phthalate concentration on the yoga mat surface.
Our Yoga Monster Mats are SGS certified tested to non-measurable levels and far exceed the strict European phthalate standards. Using our Yoga Monster mat you can forget about phthalates and heavy metals and simply relax and enjoy your yoga practice.
