The eKO leaves no footprint in landfill sites. It is a sustainable natural tree rubber mat made without the use of foaming agents and plasticisers used in other manufacturers rubber mats.
With a full 5mm depth it is very nearly as luxurious as the Black mat pro. It features a sea-grass textured upper surface which is comfortable to use and offers good grip even when you perspire a bit. If you are feeling like doing a really sweaty practice, then just flip the mat over and use the base as the surface for even better traction.
The Manduka eKO mat is the perfect choice for people who want a really good, durable mat and also care about the environment.
The eKO mat also comes in a lite version (3mm thick) for those of you who like to move about with your mats.
