This sustainable yoga mat from Hugger Mugger is non-toxic, biodegradable, and recyclable. Made from a newly developed and patented TPE (Thermal Plastic Elastomer) foam, this mat contains no latex, PVC or rubber, and uses no toxic materials in its production. Its patterned surface provides the same natural traction you've enjoyed in traditional yoga mats. This yoga mat features a closed cell construction that prevents absorption of fluids, making it easy to keep clean. Earth Elements naturally provides excellent traction and is specially designed for non-slip performance.
