Manduka LiveOn Mat Renewal Workshop
Manduka Live On Yoga Mat Recycling

A Circular Solution For Yoga Mats

As one of the largest producers of yoga mats, we’ve challenged ourselves to help keep them out of landfills.

We created our LiveON program as the first step in implementing a zero-waste yoga mat cycle, helping our planet stay cleaner and greener.

We’ve partnered with The Renewal Workshop - a passionate group of people dedicated to creating change in the textile industry. As TRW's first yoga mat partner, we are proud to offer a zero waste system serving both yogis and planet.

We’re excited to partner with such experienced leaders in sustainability. Check out their website to learn more.

  • What Happens To Your Old Gear?

    What Happens To Your Old Gear?

    Depending on its condition, one of two things can happen to your old mat:

    Repair & Renew

    If it just needs some TLC, The Renewal Workshop has a dedicated team that will repair, clean, and refresh the mat and donate it to a group or facility that might not otherwise have access to yoga gear.

    Think: community centers, schools, youth programs, and senior programs.

    What Happens To Your Old Gear?

    Depending on its condition, one of two things can happen to your old mat:

    Downcycle

    If it is beyond repair, the mat goes through a process called downcycling and is ground into pieces and repurposed into other products or ingredients of other products.

    Think: carpet padding, animal shelter bedding, track surfaces, and soles of shoes.
