At Luxya Yoga we take sustainability very seriously. We knew we wanted to create a brand that held true to our personal beliefs and made sustainable development a key part of the business. We believe as a brand and as a company we have a responsibility to care for and preserve the environment. To leave our planet in a better state for our children.

Brand Values

Our brand values start with responsibility. Responsibility for our environment, our impact to the environment and how we interact with our suppliers. We have gone to great lengths to find suppliers we feel share the same values.

Carbon Neutral

Locally, we are proud to be a QAS-Certified Carbon Neutral business. We strive to be a carbon neutral organization and actively offset our carbon footprint through the purchases of carbon credits from our partner Clear Offset. We wanted to take this a step further and give our customers the choice to offset the last mile carbon. We partnered with CarbonClick, a New Zealand based carbon offsetting company helping to create a greener planet by partnering with ecommerce companies like us and enabling us to offer fully traceable carbon offsets to our customers.

Environmental Policy

Wanting to be eco-friendly is one thing but without measuring your impact or making plans to change even the best intentions fail to deliver results. We took the step to document our environmental impact and targets in our environmental policy.

Sustainable Supply Chain

We are very proud that our suppliers all maintain Business Social Compliance Initiative(BSCI) audits enabling us to trade with purpose by improving social performance in our supply chain.

Amfori have a strong code of conduct has 11 principles. These range from fair remuneration to no child labour, along with a step-by-step approach that enables companies to monitor, engage, get empowered and receive support to put sustainable trade at the heart of their business.

Sustainable Materials

Our yoga mats are made with 100% natural tree rubber from sustainable sources. Our microfiber mats are made with rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate, or recycled PET) reclaimed from plastic bottles. Reducing landfill and reusing plastics.

Our sustainable journey

We understand that sustainability is a continuous journey and not a destination. As we learn more about the impact of certain products or materials we endeavor to make positive changes in our supply chain and products. We value feedback and insight into how we can improve our footprint. Together we will make a difference.

As a yogi we all spend a lot of time on mats. Whether that's at home, at the studio or gym or if we're lucky outside in our local parks or even on the beach. The last thing we want to disrupt our flow is a dirty or worse smelly mat!

Currently, only 3% of philanthropic donations go towards environmental causes. Three. That’s a really, really small number. Interestingly enough, we can make a huge impact on that small number with an even smaller number: 1%. That’s where 1% for the Planet comes in.

We are all familiar with those spongy ribbed PVC yoga mats, with their worn interior at your regular feet placement positions, that wafting odour of yesterday’s sweat and the small flaking particles it leaves every time you roll your mat away. Not only is this hugely unappealing but being made from Polyvinyl Chloride this product is one of the most environmentally hazardous consumer materials ever produced. And as an environmentally conscious yogi yourself why not dig a little deeper and discover some alternate options that will not only aid your yoga practice but will be far more beneficial for the health and wellbeing of everyone involved in the full lifecycle of your yoga mat.
