The eKO Lite Mat from Manduka is the next generation of ecologically responsible yoga mats. This style is a thinner version of the standard eKO Mat, making it transportable and travel-friendly. It blends innovation and technology for the perfect balance of sustainability and performance. Recyclable and biodegradable, it has a non-slip, durable sea-grass texture. The eKO was a whopping three years in the making, designed and tested by instructors for high performance. Made from natural rubber with closed cell construction, this mat is also notable for what's not in it: No PVC or oil-based materials, no phalates or toxic foaming agents. It's also non-allergenic, 99.9% latex free, and scent free (after the initial break-in period).
