The waste we’re sending to landfill is increasingly diverse and toxic.
Reuse your old yoga mats and avoid contributing to landfill.

Here are some ideas on how you can reuse your old yoga mat.

  1. Donate to community groups like The Yoga Foundation.

  2. Door Mats (you can use eco-friendly spray paints to add extra flair and design).

  3. Placemats for pet bowls

  4. Cut out floor protector pads and glue onto furniture legs.

  5. Use a small piece as a jar opener/gripper.

  6. Line drawers and kitchen cupboards to prevent slipping.

  7. Cut out a mat to make gardening more comfortable.

  8. Use as an extra sleeping mat or in place of an air mattress when camping.

  9. Place in front of your tent as a makeshift doormat and a place to put on shoes.

  10. Place in the back seat of the car for pets

  11. Donate to an animal shelter.

  12. Use in your boot to keep groceries from sliding around.

  13. Cut out shapes and put them to work as hot pads under pots and pans.

  14. Some yoga mats like the CORK LEAF yoga mat are biodegradable so you can also cut it up and add it to your compost bin. 


We are currently working on a project where you can 'dispose' of old yoga mats without sending them to landfill. Stay tuned for more details.
