Countless yoga mats are made from non-recyclable materials, and as a result end up in landfill – not great news if you’re thinking of hopping onto the fitness trend in the new year. Already famed for their colourful yoga mats made using recycled plastic bottle microfibres, Yoga Design Lab’s latest collection is also designed to love the earth. Their highly functional, and eco-friendly, cork collection is a sustainable choice as the tree is not harmed during the process, and actually allows for greater absorption of CO2 while the bark regrows.
If you’re looking for tips on being more sustainable in the kitchen this year, then you’ve come to the right place. Melissa Hemsley’s Eat Green advocates a relaxed way of cooking that teaches you how to be flexible when buying, cooking and using up food, cutting down on food waste, as well as recipes that allow you to use a wider variety of UK-grown, seasonal vegetables, and eating less (but better quality) meat.
