Why Plant Foam?
Developed out of our effort to reduce the environmental impact on our planet, 55% of Plant Foam is made from sugarcane. Combined with our signature, sustainable cork surface we have achieved a yoga mat made with 70% renewable materials
earth and body kind
Crops used to create Plant Foam work to remove more greenhouse gases from the atmosphere as they grow. 95% of the water utilized by a typical sugarcane mill is treated and re-used, minimizing water usage. Sugarcane fields contribute to healthier soils by limiting soil loss, due in part to the semi-perennial nature of sugarcane. The same plant grows back many times after harvest and is typically only replanted every five or six years. Plus, Plant Foam contains ZERO PVC’s, latex, plasticizers or rubber smells.
Plant foam is a win-win for the environment and your practice. Light weight, optimal cushion and superior durability. Closed cell structure means it won’t absorb moisture for ease in care.
I have three YOLOHA yoga mat’s and I love them all. My favorite at this time is the Original with Plant Foam. I do Bikram Yoga and love not needing a towel on the mat during class (I keep one from the gym near me and wipe it down when necessary) and I love the way the natural cork smells and feels! My balance is great using this mat and it’s so lightweight! I have no complaints, but am wondering when the Unity Mat will be made with Plant Foam as well. I will buy it too and add it to my collection of the best mat’s around. Lynn
Thanks for the awesome feedback, Lynn! We are hoping to have the Unity made with Plant Foam by 2023 :)
I am a little surprised by how much you have to wet down a cork yoga mat to assist with the gripping. It also feels less cushy than the $8 clearance-priced TJ Maxx synthetic one I got in January 2021. I do like that I don’t have to worry about what I am breathing, and also that nothing small is breaking off the mat for the cats to consider eating. Just not convinced yet that I have made the optimum choice, workout-wise. Not walking off the mat when done feeling glad about having this new one. Will continue to give it a fair chance, as I am a big believer in getting my money’s worth.
Thanks for the feedback, Frank! We make several different mat styles that vary by grip and texture. This mat is 6mm thick, which is thicker than most yoga mats. If you are looking for more cushion, the Aura is a great option. If you are looking for a more rugged grip, the Unity is great. We offer free 60 day returns to make sure you are 100% satisfied. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions :)
I can't believe it took me this long to make the switch to cork, but I am SO thankful I did. It has enhanced my practice in so many ways. I'm no longer putting my body in positions just to make sure I don't slip or slide around, I'm able to focus on where my body should be for the pose. I also love that it is plant foam and supporting a small business. Thank you Yohola!! :)
This why we do what we do, Lindsay! Thanks for making our day with this wonderful review :)
I love stretching on this mat—paired with the mat spray there is no slipping, so I can focus more on my form and building strength, instead of being worried about face planting during downward dog.
That's the way it's supposed to be, Emma! Thanks so much for sharing your experience.
Thanks for the feedback, Peter!
