Oceanworks - Taking Action Against Plastic Pollution

Oceanworks - Taking Action Against Plastic Pollution

Posted by Nicole Lennox on

At Yoloha Yoga, our mission is more than just downward dogs and sun salutations. We're committed to fostering a healthier planet through every yoga practice. Whether this be through our use of natural materials or sustainable business practices, we are constantly seeking new and innovative ways to make a difference.

Enter Oceanworks, a game-changer in the fight against ocean pollution. Their mission? To turn ocean-bound plastics into valuable resources, effectively cleaning up our oceans while creating sustainable materials for various products. We couldn't think of a better partner to team up with!

Oceanworks makes it easy for brands like us to take action against plastic pollution. Through a global network of collectors and recycled plastic suppliers, they provide a clear path to reduce our plastic footprint with reliability and transparency.

Here's how it works: every purchase of $75 or more on yolohayoga.com, will remove 2 pounds of trash from the ocean through Oceanworks' initiatives. 

The plastic collection you fund, otherwise known as a "plastic offset," is at-risk plastic waste that is collected or diverted from the environment. As of 2024, there are Oceanworks collection initiatives active in North America, Asia, and Africa. The vast majority of collection occurs in our Ocean-Bound, Coastal, and Riverway Collection Areas.

So, whether you're in the market for a new yoga mat, prop or accessory, know that your purchase goes beyond the mat. It's a statement of solidarity with our planet and a step towards a brighter, cleaner future.

Join us as we roll out our mats and roll up our sleeves to make waves of positive change. Together, we can create a world where yoga isn't just a practice – it's a path towards a better tomorrow.
