The Conscious Supply Chain
At Gecko, we take a radically different approach to making a yoga mat.
Just how different, exactly?
Well, what if we told you that your current yoga mat caused serious environmental damage to produce? That the eco-friendly material it's claimed to be made of, is actually just toxic plastic?
That the expensive yoga mat from the trendy Athliesure brand is virtually identical to the discount yoga mat on Amazon. That they are made in the same factories, for the same costs, and the only difference is the branding?
Unfortunately, this is how the yoga industry operates. And if you ask us, it's not very yogic.
But we're here to turn the industry on it's head (headstand pun very much intended). We are committed to sustainability, quality, and transparency in every aspect of our business.
All our yoga products are made following our unique Conscious Supply Chain. Here’s what that means.
We only use renewable and ethically sourced materials, such as premium Portuguese cork. We make sure that all of these materials are non-toxic, eco-friendly, and biodegradable or recyclable.
All our products are made by our partner production house in Portugal, located just a short distance away from the cork farms. Local production allows us to offset the environmental burden of international manufacturing and shipping.
