We are not perfect, but we are working hard to provide you a beautiful AND safe product.

Our mats are free of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and phalates. We use water-based inks and a 100% biodegradable, recylable, eco-friendly, natural tree rubber base, bonded to an ultra-absorbent suede cloth top that increases grip as you sweat. Any plastic used by Spiritual Revolution is 100% biodegradable.

What does this all really mean?

Jenna Jambeck, an environmental engineering faculty member at the University of Georgia, explains in this PRI article, “We’ve seen this huge increase in production in plastic that results in an increase in the waste stream as well. Unlike material that biodegrades, plastic has all of these issues. It easily travels into waterways, it physically fragments into smaller pieces which are extremely hard or impossible to collect, and [it tends to] absorb chemical contaminants that are already in the environment.”

The same article goes on to state, “Some 5.3 million to 14 million tons of plastic, or up to 4 percent of the roughly 330 million tons of plastic produced each year, entered the ocean as trash in 2010. The figure is expected to increase 10-fold in the next decade as more plastic is produced and subsequently evades waste management and recycling efforts, according to a study Jambeck and colleagues published earlier this year in the journal Science.”

We don’t believe in being angry activists or using scare tactics, but we all have a role to play in helping to preserve and sustain our beautiful home for future generations.
