Recycled Wetsuits

Neoprene wetsuits getting a new life as yoga mats instead of ending up in landfills.

We learned about Suga Yoga Mats this morning after reading this review in Wired, and want to share what they’re doing since it parallels our efforts to support sustainable fashion/production.

Any opportunity to recycle or repurpose items we already own is a good thing. It keeps them from immediately ending up in landfills after their intended use has ended and contributing to the tons of waste produced each year. It also means fewer resources need to be used to produce new items, like new yoga mats that are commonly made from PVC.

Another thing we like is they have thought through the life cycle of their mats and offer recycling.
