Yoga is increasingly becoming a common pastime of many people; helping them to relax after a stressful day and improve their health and well-being. And as Yoga is an ancient art, and is as much about being one with nature as it is to improve health and well-being, being eco-friendly and caring about the environment is conducive with the thinking behind Yoga.
However, while practising Yoga doesn’t require too much space or any equipment to practice, it does require a good set of Yoga clothing.
Much of Yoga is about stretching, which means wearing flexible and stretchy material. Unfortunately most of the current Yoga Clothing is made from nylon or polyester, and while these man-made fibres are certainly elastic enough, they are hardly conducive to an eco-friendly lifestyle. Furthermore, man-made fibre such as nylon, do not allow air to penetrate through to the skin which can make the wearer feel sweaty.
However, completely sustainable, comfortable, completely breathable and elastic material is available for yoga wear – Bamboo.
Bamboo is one of the most sustainable resources on earth as it is a grass and one of the fastest growing. A Bamboo field can take just days to replenish after harvesting and as a grass, it can grow without any need of pesticides or herbicides.
