+ Don’t fold or crease your CorkYogis cork yoga mat.
+ Roll it up loosely like you would any other yoga mat, so that cork is on the outside and the rubber surface is on the inside of the rolled mat.
+ Don’t worry about sweating – the mat grips even better when you do!
+ Thankfully cork is self cleaning which is great, however we recommend you clean the cork surface monthly, simply with warm water and a squeeze of lemon to remove sweat and body oils.
+ Spraying the surface of your mat with a standard cleaning spray can also work well. Leave out until the surface is dry, then roll up as usual.
ABOUT CORKYOGIS, THE CORK & THE CHARITY
CorkYogis is a new ethical yoga company specialising in eco-friendly Cork Yoga Mats and helping women in India out of sex slavery.
CorkYogis promise to continue to work towards being the most eco-friendly and human-friendly they can possibly be. This journey starts with using sustainably harvested cork from the Cork Oak tree in Portugal. The cork is harvested carefully every 9-10 years. The first harvest occurs when the tree is 15-20 years old, once the bark is taken from the tree it takes about 9 years for the bark to grow back and be ready for harvest again.
The cork forests are regulated and managed with extreme care so not to damage the trees and creating this amazing renewable material.
Once the bark is removed from the oak trees, the bark is left out in the open to dry out for a period of 6 months. This weathering process actually improves the quality of the cork. The cork is then processed and used. No part of the cork goes un-used, even the cork dust particles are used in various cork products. This to ensure that none of the precious material is wasted, creating a sustainable process.
Cork harvesting in Portugal is one of the worlds best paid labour jobs, this ensures that the cork farmers and harvesters are getting a good wage for their resources. CorkYogis only support fair trade and care about good conditions for farmers in Portugal.
CorkYogis supports The Destiny Foundation, a Kolkata based charity who combat the immense injustices of human trafficking and the trials faced by human trafficking survivors. They work hard to empower and educate survivors to learn skills to find dignified employment and create a better future.
To do this they provide valuable and free training courses in sewing and literacy to give the girls employable skills, they then sell handmade products made out of recycled saree material to create financial independence. The girls are accepted into a loving, family environment that they often never had, the girls are treated as individuals with their own individual journey and challenges to overcome. Their moto is ‘One life at a time’.
For every natural CorkYogis mat purchased, CorkYogis provide a contribution towards a training course for one girl.
