We first teamed up with Lava Rubber to sell their amazing up cycled yoga mats as part of our mission to bring our tribe the most eco friendly, sustainable, and responsible products offered. When we came across Lava Rubber, we knew we found a product we can stand behind. They take old wetsuit, gaskets, juice containers, energy bar wrappers, yoga pants, etc to create the rubber used to make "the most considerate mat on Earth". We created our Aqua Vida x Lava Rubber branded Flow Mat for when you are taking your practice to dry land!
We wanted to take our partnership to another level by creating a program that allows our clients to mail in old leggings that will be turned into our yoga mats! About 10.5 million tons a year—goes into landfills, giving textiles one of the poorest recycling rates of any reusable material. We want to reduce that number by keeping your old leggings out and also offer 20% a new pair of leggings from our biodegradable collection! That is 2x the love for Mother Earth and a little discount love for you! Here's how it works:
What happens to your old leggings?
Old leggings will be processed and turned over to Lava Rubber. They will then be broken down and turned into the rubber used to create their mats and other products!
