An eco-friendly lifestyle means minimizing impact in every aspect of our lives. Luckily for you, many companies providing yoga kit are already thinking of how to differentiate themselves from mainstream sports equipment companies.

Sustainability and yoga are a match made in heaven, and these brands are doing amazing things. Their increased care for the environment also seems to translate to their design and material choice. This means you’ll be more comfortable and flexible than you’ve ever been – all while minimizing your impact on our planet!


Kinflyte

This product was recommended by Vivian Lee from Kinflyte

Our line of posture bras and active shorts are ideal for yoga activities. Our bras and tops incorporate a patent-pending design, which alleviates stress on shoulders and back, encourages the wearer to hold their shoulders and back in proper position, and improves posture and mobility with continual wear. We use technical knits with four-way stretch, and have inherent performance properties: antimicrobial, odor resistant, and sweat-wicking.


Alana Athletica

This product was recommended by Norberto Bohorquez from Alana Athletica

Our yoga pants are $120 worth of quality for a $68 price point – they have multi-way stretch fabric with a higher GSM and recovery modulus than leading brands, enabling a versatile and dynamic stretch with a non-pilling, never sheer guarantee, supported by a customizable waistband for wear preference (hi, mid, lo). They are fully antimicrobial and all-over moisture-wicking, with a non-toxic silver ion finish for odor banishing. We are also a social venture (think of Tom’s Shoes, but for yoga pants), and each of our pants contributes to support women who have survived sexual abuse with education, employment, and empowerment opportunities.

Yoloha makes yoga gear out of recycled cork and rubber. Their yoga mats are perfect for regular and hot yoga because they’re naturally anti-slip. Thanks to the cork material, Yoloha products are lightweight and easy to carry.


Day Owl

This product was recommended by Aire Reese from Aire Reese Consulting

Day Owl recently released the world’s most responsible backpack that was created to take you from a conference room to the yoga studio, and everywhere in between! I believe this is the perfect bag for your round up because every little pocket can hold just what you need to transition your day from desk life to a downward dog. Not to mention the handy waterproof pocket that can hold your clothes after in case you want to head to Whole Foods to pick up dinner. With free repairs for life, this bag will be your new yoga studio buddy!


Maiya

Suggesting them as they are the only luxury and eco-friendly yoga mat on the market. They are certified by OEK-TEX, an environmental certification company in Europe monitoring each step of the manufacturing process. This includes sustainable working conditions, low-emissions productions and waste management. They are also engineered to outlast other mats on the market to avoid additional waste by mat disposal and multiple purchases.
