What we love about the Yoloha Cork Yoga mat is not only the sustainability, but the extra mile when it comes to functionality in this yogi tote. Big enough to fit everything from your yoga bag to non slip mat and water bottle. So forget the gym bag, this is both a gym bag as well as a yoga tote.

Before looking into the sustainability of cork, I was under the impression that Cork Trees were endangered. However I quickly learned that because the most common use of cork (wine corks) have begun to be replaced by screw tops or even plastic corks, the demand for cork has begun to decline. Cork Trees can live up to 300 years, yet their bark is only harvested every 9-12 years (meaning its not a crop with a high return each year and farmers must be subsided by the EU).
Help save these ancient trees by selecting a bottle of vino that use real wine cork (not even joking that buying wine can help) as well as cork products such as the beautifully crafted yoga totes.
