Our mounting trash is a huge problem. When considering sustainability, we have to not only consider how things are made, but how long it will take for them to return to the earth.
In consideration for yoga gear, plastics take upwards of 500 years to begin biodegrading, often resulting in harmful microplastics. Materials like cork and plant-based rubber are excellent alternatives to harmful PVC ( a plastic).
For clothing, polyester can also take upwards of 200 years to decompose (hence the rise in popularityof recycled polyester). Materials like cotton, bamboo viscose, and other natural equivalents have a much shorter decomposition time.
