Why We Love Them: We really admire companies who stay true to their commitment to the earth even after becomming a huge name in the yoga world, and Jade yoga is no exception. Thier dedication to the eco-concious manufacturing and work with several non-profit organizations that help the community and the planet is outstanding.
JADE YOGA REVIEWS:
"By far the best yoga mat I have ever used. Nice and sticky, feels substantial. I like the extra length. I can't go back to using standard yoga mats anymore." (via Amazon.com)
"Had this for almost a month now. Amazing quality and grip. Even in some pretty sweaty vinyasa and bikram sessions it kept its grip. The natural rubber smell was a bit of a turn off at first but went away after about a week of use. Probably my favorite mat I own now." (via Amazon.com)
"No other yoga mat even comes close to this one. No matter how sweaty you might get in a hot yoga class, you will not slip on this mat. As a bonus, it's very reasonably priced compared to overpriced mats that aren't remotely as good. You won't regret this purchase." (via Amazon.com)
