RECYCLING & REUSING YOUR YOGA MAT
Unfortunately not all Yoga Mats are designed to last forever. After a few years of use and exposure to different weather and elements they can sometimes start to look a bit worse for wear. Depending on the type of mat, they could become scuffed, they could start flaking - they could even start wearing through entirely. Generally once the grip has become affected it is always a good idea to look into updating your mat to ensure your practice remains safe and you can concentrate on yourself during your routine rather than your mat.
The link below shows a variety of different ways you can recycle and reuse your old yoga mat. These tried and tested alternatives to throwing out your mat will give you the opportunity to give your mat a second life that may be just as useful as its first one.
