About our eco products

Why choose an Evergreenyogi mat?

A cuddle of mats

Our mats are made from materials that are:

  • 100% recyclable or Biodegradable
  • PVC free, the stuff that clogs our seas and landfills and takes 100’s if not 1000’s of years to degrade
  • Naturally Antibacterial cork surface
  • Free from any harmful skin contact chemicals
  • Easy to clean
  • Manufactured by a low energy usage process
  • Elastic, Durable yet Lightweight TPE ( our natural rubber mats are heavier) – suitable for home and travel use!

Evergreenyogi mats are 100% recyclable or completely biodegradable. We would encourage you to recycle our mats by simply putting them into your recycling bin at the end of their life. This way they could be recycled into another product such as a toy or a toothbrush handle or even another yoga mat, fancy that!

Our cork yoga mats have the advantage of being naturally anti-bacterial, cork also contains a substance called Suberin this is a natural barrier of water and is highly water repellent . The base material is either TPE (thermoplastic elastomer and widely recyclable), this is a closed-cell structure material that stops dirt getting embedded and are therefore makes them easy to clean and odour free. Our Natural rubber based mats are made from sustainably harvested rubber in Malaysia ( these mats are 100% biodegradable).

Natural rubber Harvesting

They are non-toxic because they are phthalate free (a substance that is added to some plastics to increase their flexibility that is proven to cause numerous health issues such as cancer, neuro-developmental issues and fertility problems). All our mats have obtained the European Union REACH certification (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) they are CE, ROHS and phthalate certificated.

We are very proud that our mats are 100% free from PVC making them superbly eco-friendly.

Why are PVC yoga mats so harmful?

A PVC yoga mat is made of PVC resin powder and anti-tearing fibre, and as such have an open cell structure. This means the mat soaks in sweat (good for gripping, but a home for bacteria), and makes it very difficult to clean.

Finally, we go a step further to ensure all the packaging that our products arrive in is also eco friendly:

  • The wrap around with our yoga mat is made out of paper that can be recycled (you would not believed how many paper based products cannot be).
  • The clear tape used to hold the wrap around together is made out of 100% recycled plastic and therefore can be recycled.
  • The brown tape on the cardboard box is paper kraft tape and is 100% recyclable
  • The cardboard box is made out of FSC certified material (The Forest Stewardship Council is an international non-profit, multi-stakeholder organization established in 1993 to promote responsible management of the world’s forests) and is of course 100% recyclable.

All about Our Dental cleaning Tabs- by Denttabs GMBH

Simply pop the tablet in your mouth, chew it a little, wet your toothbrush and brush away! Easy peasy

How do dental tablets work?

1. Polish – don’t brush!

Strictly spoken with DENTTABS you don’t want to “clean” (or brush) your teeth. With the
main ingredient, cellulose, and a soft toothbrush you polish
the surfaces of your teeth.

These polished surfaces do not just appear more shiny and glossy. On these polished surfaces dental-plaque simply cannot develop! And we all know that dental plaque is the necessary base for tooth-decay, tartar etc.

2. DENTTABS repair teeth!

In the late 1960s scientists found out that with a Fluoride-Ion (F) being present in saliva
on the surface of a tooth the remineralising crystals that are built out of saliva ingredients develop much faster than without F being present.
The toothpaste-industry took the chance and made their toothpaste the (so everybody
thought) solution to your dental problems : Toothpaste containing Fluoride helps against tooth-decay,
which was a major problem in back then. The scientific idea still stands. But the media is wrong!
For good reasons because there is only a very small amount of Fluoride in the paste, this
small amount (max. 1500ppm = 0,15%) surrounded by so much paste simply cannot
do its job!

DENTTABS Work Differently:

DENTTABS contain the same amount of fluoride in each tablet as contained in  1 gram of a
regular toothpaste. But it totally dissolves in saliva the moment you bite on it, mix it with
your saliva and then spread it with a soft toothbrush  all over
your teeth! And thus 100% is available for the job of remineralising especially the sensitive necks of your teeth.

 What are the Ingredients of DENTTABS-teeth caring tablets:

Microcrystalline Cellulose is the polishing agent that is responsible for the wonderfully smooth feeling due to which nothing can attach to the surface. No plaque = no tooth decay.
Sodium Bicarbonate is, combined with the citric acid, responsible for the correct pH-Level
Citric Acid ( see above ) increases the flow of saliva through which the remineralisation works
so much better.
Silica helps the cleaning/polishing and stabilizes the tablet.
Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate is our Tensid (Soap). It’s duty is to tie the protein to the water so
it will be flushed out when rinsing.
Although the ingredient ‚Glutamate‘ appears  it has nothing to do with the flavor- enhancer we hear about.
DENTTABS are free from glutamate and gluten.
Magnesium Stearate is a plantbased helper we need during pressing of the tablets.
Natural (Mint-) Aroma together with Stevia and Menthol is responsible for fresh and cool
Menthol see above.
Stevia (Stevioside) see above.
Xanthan-Gum makes DENTTABS so smooth and creamy.
Sodium Fluoride – ‘naturally’ only valid for DENTTABS containing Fluoride! – supports
the remineralisation of your enamel. Especially sensitive teeth may be repaired within
Eugenol is a natural part of the mintaroma.

DENTTABS are free from preserving agents, germicides, binding agents,
aluminium and plastics! They still clean your teeth however.

Our Bamboo toothbrushes!

Whats the deal with a Bamboo toothbrush?

Our Evergreenyogi eco toothbrushes are a compact brush head size and made from mos Bamboo, this bamboo grows extremely fast without the need for any fertiliser and this is the one panda’s don’t eat :). This organic bamboo toothbrush is both sustainable and FSC certified. Bamboo is also naturally antibacterial.

The bristles!

The bristles are made from Nylon 6,10 a bio based Nylon derived from castor bean oil.

We realise that the bristles are not Biodegradable like our handle but after researching the market there is at this time no alternative that would offer a long lasting robust bristle, the nylon is 63% castor oil based (hence the bio based bit), Nylon 6,10 is recyclable however.( please check with your local authority) “horrible term that ‘authority’ over whom we ask” 🙂

Thank you for helping to protect our planet by buying our carefully selected Evergreenyogi products.
