Yogi Bare could not exist without the incredible people who manufacture our products and it would be against our personal and professional ethics to not ensure the entire process is in line with our mission.
We have an incredibly close relationship with our factory. Our factory is located in Hong Kong which enables us to supply globally.
Our team has spent time with factory and makers, not just to personally express our gratitude and work with them on the latest material and yoga innovations but we wanted to approve the high working conditions in person.
We took this one step further with employing a member of the Yogi Bare team based in HK who works personally within the factory testing quality control and standards all year round. Third party audits occur regularly for welfare, safety and product safety.
This is a long-standing working relationship and one we are proud to grow together. Our team and factory receive fair pay, work in a highly ethical, safe and happy environment.
We are committed to innovation and continuously striving to evolve to being more environmentally friendly – from product to packaging to freight.
We are making conscious choices daily to reduce waste, plastic, pollution and better material choices and manufacturing choices.
Our rubber is sourced from a sustainable forest. We choose to create with this because of the highly grippy properties of the material but also because its is biodegradable and protects are our planet from extremely harmful and sadly common PVC yoga mats.
No animal testing. All products are 100% vegan.
Our packaging is currently 100% recyclable and where we can we are making cuts to the amount of packaging used while still protecting the products you purchase.
We choose freight by water as this minimises our carbon footprint.
Beyond the manufacturing we actively support our planet by planting trees with Hometree and direct action on ocean conservation with Sea Shepherd.
We believe that protecting the environment also begins in mental health and education. When people consumer consciously they buy for a genuine need or purpose as opposed to excessive consumption which is often triggered by low self esteem and consuming to mask feelings to inadequacy or comparison. Yogi Bare exists to combat those feelings with its supportive community, brand and social messaging.
