In celebration of Earth Month, the April giveaway on Om Shanti: A Yoga Blog is a brand new yoga mat from Kharma Khare. Actually, “brand new” is a bit of a misnomer, since the Yoga Reincarnated mat is made entirely out of recycled car tires. This innovative company is taking used automobile tires that would otherwise end up in a landfill and giving them a second life — as a yoga mat!
These yoga mats are pricey, but with the Yoga Reincarnated, you’re getting a dense, sturdy mat that will last much longer than those squishy foam mats which seem to disintegrate as soon as you touch them. Also, whenever you are ready for a new mat, Kharma Khare will give you 50% off your next purchase if you return your old mat (which they will turn into yet another mat). That’s a pretty good incentive to recycle, and in the long run it makes the price of the Yoga Reincarnated comparable to similar mats on the market.
Here’s the theme of this month’s giveaway:
