The Yoga Mat Helping To Reduce The Ecological Impact Of Yoga
While Christina Cavaco was living in Portugal in a small country town, she decided she wanted to work for a purpose, for a bigger cause and do something that aligned with her values.
The problem was, she had no idea what she wanted to do how to contribute.
“I came across a blog about zero waste living and I was so intrigued about the idea and this is where my passion for sustainable living started.
From this I continuously researched more and more about what sustainable living is and what we can do to help. I knew this is how I wanted to contribute: both personally and professionally.
When the idea of Cork Leaf came about there was no thought of whether it will be an ethical business or not. It was simply an extension of my values and myself. It was another opportunity for me to make my contribution.”
Wanting to help reduce the ecological impact of yoga, Christina set out to create a yoga mat that was environmentally friendly and durable.
