Don't throw away that old yoga mat!

Before you think about tossing that old mat, consider some more environmentally friendly options. Here are a few of our favorites:
  • Dog owners: use the mat to protect your back seat when taking the puppy in a road trip
  • Cat owners: use the mat to protect the area near the litter box or as a scratching post
  • Cut the mat to pieces and use as mouse pads, jar grippers, or crafts for the kids
  • Donate to a homeless shelter for extra padding for someone to sleep on
  • Use it in the garden! An old yoga mat makes great knee padding or drainage in flower pots
  • If your mat is gently used or nearly new, donate it to Yoga Bear!

Options for your old mat are endless... Tossing it in the trash should be a last resort.
