We've had the same yoga mats for years and years, and they've seen better days. So recently we've been considering retiring them and purchasing some new ones. However, we weren't sure what to do. They don't seem recyclable and the material looks like it would sit in the landfill for eternity. We were happy to find a yoga mat recycling resource...
Tiny Choices put a post up just last week about recycling/reusing yoga mats. It's full of great suggestions.
Here are a couple:
• Turn the mats into flip-flops!
&bull"Recycle your Mat" Program turns old mats into all sorts of new yoga products
