Eco Friendly Products To Help You LIVE BETTER
At ZONE we have made commitment to the Earth to be plastic free and support sustainable practices. During design and production of our Yoga products, it became apparent that this was going against the grain – our suppliers kept asking why we didn’t want our cork yoga blocks wrapped in plastic! We stuck to our guns and are proud to bring you yoga products and packaging that are free from plastic and kind to the Earth.
However, we understand that our eco awareness extends further than the yoga mat, which is why we’ve brought you some more easy everyday sustainable swaps.
