Why You Need To Switch From PVC To PER Yoga Mats
Make right choice on your yoga mat
Adria Vasil of NOW Toronto magazine set out to find the difference between the various types of mats that yogis can purchase. Her findings might just surprise you.
Vasil noted that PVC-based mats are some of the most common, cheapest mats, but these actually aren't that great for users. She learned that the primary substance, polyvinyl chloride, is controversial due to its lack of environmental friendliness.
These shoddy mats are often treated with hormone-disrupting phthalates, which have been banned in children's toys but found in yoga mats available everywhere but Denmark—which is set to bar their use in 2015.
One great alternative that Vasil provided is PER mats, which replicate the look and feel of PER mats but are eco-friendly and more durable. Elite Trend HQ's Premium Yoga and Pilates Mattes are designed from this very material, which make them the best option on the market at a mere $38.
The big reason why you will want to go with a PER yoga mat over a PVC one is the absence of phthalates. Vasil found that instead of utilizing these contentious materials, PER mats are comprised of acetyl tributyl citrate, a safe plastic softener.
Yoga enthusiasts that care about their health—which is a hopefully a great number—will be pleased to know that these PER mats are much better and safer to use than the ubiquitous PVC mats.
Those that own a PVC mat and are looking to replace it, or just getting ready to buy their first yoga mat should look no further than the best environmentally friendly yoga mat that money can buy, the Premium Yoga Mat from Elite Trend.
This durable, 5mm thick mat is extremely comfortable and usable for both men and women who are looking for a great mat to practice yoga, Pilates or foam roller exercises on. It boasts a non-slip gripping surface and is able to withstand the rigors of long sessions in hot yoga studios.
Remember, choosing the right yoga mat is one of the most important decisions a yogi can make. Elite Trend HQ makes that choice easy with a cheap, durable, environmentally friendly yoga mat that looks great and is currently on sale for an amazing price.
