BAM Seamless Lighter-Weight 360º Stretch Leggings

Sustainable bamboo yoga leggings for comfort  and performance
BAM is a pioneer in all-things bamboo. It makes a whole range of cool  yoga kit, for both guys and girls, that feels great on the skin and is kind to  the planet. Firstly, the fabric: a natural alternative to synthetic materials,  bamboo viscose is not only super soft and supportive, but it is also naturally  breathable. BAM’s new Balance range of seamless yoga wear should tick  the box if you prefer a lighter-weight but still body-responsive legging. The  bamboo fabric’s 360º stretch provides total freedom of movement, offering  just the right amount of comfort and support for even the most demanding  pose. The leggings have a cleverly designed double layer of ribbing at the  waistband and on the ankle for an excellent fit, with no digging in. Available  in a warm Fig or classic Black with flattering contrast panels, and a range  of co-ordinating Balance tops. Bamboo has great eco credentials too and,  because of the super-absorbent fibre structure of the material, moisture  doesn’t sit on the surface of the fabric, so air cannot get to the odour[1]causing bacteria — this means you can wear the leggings for longer between  washing. Save the planet and save washing time! For the full range of yoga  wear visit the BAM website.

Jade Voyager Mat

A tree planted for every yoga mat sold!

The Jade Voyager mat is extra thin (1/16", 1.6mm) and extra light (1.5  pounds, 680g) and folds up to about the size of a yoga block to fit into  your suitcase or backpack. Great for yogis on the go and for those  who like closer contact with the ground. Don't look for the Voyager  for cushion, but it is the best choice if you have a limited amount of  storage space or will be using it over another mat. Just like you would  expect creases in your clothes when you travel, creases are a natural  consequence of folding the Voyager mat; effects will be minimised by  keeping your mat rolled when not traveling. Jade is everything you want in a yoga mat – cool colours,  incredible grip, great comfort and eco-friendly. The mats are made  in a sustainable manner with natural rubber tapped from rubber  trees, a renewable resource. Unlike many other mats, Jade mats  contain no PVC, EVA or other synthetic rubber, and are made in the  USA in compliance with all US environmental, labour and consumer  protection laws. And, through a partnership with Trees for the  Future, the company plants a tree for every mat sold – with over two  million trees planted so far!

Yoga Pieces Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat

One mat sold = one tree planted

Yoga mats made from sustainably extracted tree rubber, topped  with an eco-polyurethane layer to provide the best grip possible for  your practice. Free from PVC, phthalates and other nasty harmful  chemicals, all mats are safe and non-toxic. The biodegradable mats  come in four unique colours, all with a dotted central alignment  line for guiding during your practice. Inclusive size of 183x68cm  and an optimal thickness of 4mm to provide enough cushioning for  your joints, but not too much to throw you off balance.  At Yoga Pieces, they pay close attention to the impact they  have on the world. From its packaging to the mats themselves,  the firm aims to make responsible choices each step of the way.  Mats are made from sustainably extracted natural rubber, which  not only boasts benefits for your practice, but is kind to the  planet too.  One mat sold = one tree planted. Since launching just five  months ago, the company has helped plant almost 400 trees in  Madagascar, Tanzania, Nicaragua, India and Nepal. And, 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 1,000 years it takes  for PVC mats to biodegrade, it's quite impressive.
