A few weeks ago I swapped a yoga tote that I made with two-sided quilted material for a new Jade Yoga mat. (I actually have one in the color jade.) I looked at the wrapper and discovered that this company is right in step with Earth Day’s theme of planting trees. Here is a direct quote from www.everythingyoga, which carries Jade yoga mats. The tree logo is also on Jade Yoga’s website. (My thanks to Jackie Routhenstein for the free yoga class and the barter.) For the official site for purchasing mats & planting trees, go to www.jadeyoga.com.
So far, 1,286,369 trees have been planted!
Plant a Tree
Jade Yoga Plants a Tree for every mat sold!Purchasing a Jade Yoga Mat furthers their environmentally friendly cause. Not only are the mats constructed with environmentally safe materials, but the company prides itself on furthering the growth of trees. They also support a variety of causes such as Trees for the Future, Africa Yoga Project, Off the Mat into the World and more.–
Jade Harmony mats are constructed of natural rubber (a renewable resource tapped from rubber trees) and contain no PVC or ozone depleting substances – perfect for the yogi concerned about the environment. Jade Yoga is also committed to giving back to the earth. Through their partnership with Trees For the Future, a tree is planted for every mat purchased.
