Mat recycling to help the homeless

We would like to offer a yoga mat recycling scheme for your old yoga mats, many of our customers have expressed a concern about what to do with their old PVC mats once they have purchased one of our Eco yoga mats.

Evergreenyogi are now working with a homeless charity in our local area ( Southampton U.K ), and they are run by an amazing guy called Suj ( I originally thought his name was Fudge but that’s a story for a different time  ).

Suj is on the left

Suj Helps the homeless by collecting donated un-purchased food at the end of the day from various food outlets and then sets up a stall in the city center, he and his volunteers then hand it out to the the homeless or people whom have hit hard times. Whats not to like about this?



If you would like to donate your used yoga mat and purchase one of our eco yoga mats or eco cork yoga mats Just click the link and browse our stock. After you purchase just pop you mat into the box your new mat arrives in and send it back to us. HERMES UK offer the best value right now.

Me trying to keep up with the tea and coffee orders!

Your old mat will become a bed for someone or even a dog! Either way its getting a new life and can help another person.

Lets spread the love yogis

Much love Evergreenyogi x

  1. Hi.
    We run yoga studios and have lots of old but usable mats that aren’t quite good enough to still be used in studio, but still have life left in them. About 50. Do you know anyone we can pass these to who would benefit from them please?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Adam, we would love to take the mats from you but unfortunately we do not have the capacity to handle such a large amount. I will endeavour to help find a home for them tho.
      I will contact local teachers who may be able to use them.
      Best wishes

  2. Hi
    I have an old yoga mat that I’d like to donate but I’m struggling to find a home for it. Are you still accepting donations?
    Thanks
    Esther

    1. Hi Esther, sorry for the late reply. We do still accept old yoga mats but only when buying a new one from us. I’m afraid we would otherwise be inundated with old mats.
      Best wishes
