At Village Green Yoga we don't offer every yoga mat under the sun. We just offer what we think are the best of the best. Our Jade mats are great for the planet but are also wonderful for their incredible slip resistance. These are the original rubber yoga mats and still the best on the marker in our humble opinion. Many of our teachers and students quality test these mats every day!
Jade mats are made with natural rubber and contain no PVC or other
synthetic rubbers. Natural rubber is tapped, like maple syrup, from a
rubber tree, a sustainable, renewable resource. We use natural rubber
because it grips better and has more cushion than any of the synthetic
rubbers on the market (PVC, PER, TPE, EVA). It is also better for the
earth as it is made sustainably. In addition to natural rubber, our
mats contain both natural and man-made components. The precise
components of our mats are proprietary (the last thing we want is
someone knocking off our mats overseas); Jade mats contain no PVCs,
heavy metals or ozone depleting substances. All components are approved
by FDA for use in rubber in continuous content with food.

Jade mats are eco-friendly as they are made with a renewable,
sustainable resource - natural rubber, tapped from rubber trees. Jade
mats contain no PVC or other synthetic rubbers. Perhaps most
importantly, Jade mats are made in the United States in compliance with
all US environmental and labor laws. Finally, through its partnership
with Trees for the Future, JadeYoga plants a tree for every mat sold.
