Where to donate your yoga mat

I recently inherited a brand new manduka eko lite mat…Never tried one before.  Anyway, I don’t really need more than one mat, so the extra has got to go somewhere, but where?

  • Recycle your mat either upcycles your mat or donates it to a community organization to use as is.
  • With The Art of Yoga Project, your mat goes to a yoga + art initiative for at risk teenage girls.
  • The Mind Body Awareness Project is all about giving at risk and incarcerated youth mindfulness training as a tool to transform their everyday lives.  They need yoga mats!
  • Bent on Learning will transform your mat from a yoga mat, to a tent, to a blanket, to a magic carpet, to who knows what else in its many yoga and meditation classes for NYC public school children and youth centers.

Let’s get this list growing!  Where else can one donate one’s mat?

Manduka has teamed up with Recycle Your Mat to offer a 20% discount for mindful peeps that send their old yoga mats to be recycled.  Yay for the discount.  Yay for supporting recycling.  Yay for the people who set up this long overdue project!
