Do yoga, save the planet – one mat at a time

Yoga does wonders for the mind and body, but it may also be great for the environment.

According to Form, a London-based fitness brand which aims to "take more carbon out of the atmosphere" than what goes into it during the manufacturing process, its recently unveiled yoga mats are designed to fight against single-use plastic waste.

The mats, which are produced in collaboration with sustainability charity SolarAid, feature a vibrant design of glyphs and intersecting circles and are made from recycled natural rubber and plastic bottles.

Fully reusable and washable, they're also silicone, toxic glue, and phthalate-free.

The mats will be available on Amazon for customers in the US and Canada from early December.
