How to choose the right cork Yoga Mat?
There are many cork yoga mats available online; however, not all are durable and not all are eco friendly. This is because cork has a unique cellular structure with millions of cells enclosed with a gaseous substance. On its own, it can break or wear off easily if it is rolled up, bent or if too much pressure is exerted.
Also some manufacturers may use cork that is primarily for building trade or industrial use, which is usually acquired from the first two harvests of a new cork oak. Thus the durability factor does not apply to all cork yoga mats.
Other manufacturers have overcome this by adding a TPE or synthetic rubber layer. TPE or thermoplastic elastomers is still a mix of rubber and plastic and other synthetic materials.

How To clean cork yoga mats?

Sea-water will not damage your mat! Just remember to wash it with plain water (once done) to avoid salt-water stains.
