No one wants to rest his or her forehead on a brand new yoga mat and inhale fumes – but since most mats are made of petrochemicals, that’s usually what happens.
By contrast, this thick, sturdy, nontoxic mat from Thinksport smells delightfully like nothing at all. Constructed from high-performance materials that don’t off-gas (no PVC, latex, rubber, BPA, lead or phthalates), it uses a “closed-cell” construction that’s resistant to both sweat and bacteria. Breathe deeply in peace. $40 at www.mightynest.com.
