Normal yoga mats and accessories are made from materials that aren’t eco-friendly, but there are other options! Straw mats are the perfect eco-friendly yoga accessort for any practice. They offer slip free stability and comfort, while being gentler on the environment.
Turn your home into a sanctuary with delightful eco-friendly candles &home accessories! Normal parafin candles can release nasty chemicals into the air. Natural soy a nd beeswax candles offer a healthier alternative.
