Can you recycle a yoga mat?
Until now, recycling yoga mats, yoga blocks, yoga straps, foam rollers, self-massage balls, and self-massage tools has been a impossible. These items are often made from non-recyclable or mixed materials, making it impossible to recycle them through regular curb-side programs.
Recycling plastic is crucial for diverting waste from landfills and preventing it from polluting our waterways. Sadly, only around 10 percent of plastic is recycled in Australia each year, leaving a significant environmental impact. By recycling these items with MOBECO and TerraCycle, you are actively participating in reducing plastic waste and promoting a circular economy.
