Sustainability  

Sustainability is at the heart of our business. 

We are committed to being a conscious and climate-friendly business which means working with intention and integrity. Therefore, we are open about all aspects of our supply chain, so you know exactly what you are buying, how it was made, and how it travels to you. 

In order to keep our prices as low as possible for our customers, as well as to ship globally, we source our products from a factory in China. We are very pleased with our supplier and have formed an incredibly close and personal relationship with them. The Zoya team has over 40 years of experience working with factories in Asia which has enabled us to ensure that our products are manufactured in the most sustainable way possible. 

The factory that we work with is regularly audited for us to ensure that the team and the factory are working in accordance to ethical wages and working hours, as well as ethical and safe manufacturing processes and working conditions. 

Product materials 

Cork Yoga Block 

Our yoga blocks are made from sustainable cork. This is a renewable resource, with no trees being cut down to obtain the cork. Instead, it is harvested every 9-12 years. We decided to use cork because it is also biodegradable, recyclable and it is free from PVC or similar chemicals. Additionally, any waste that is made during production goes back into making more cork products. 

More details 

All of our products are 100% vegan. We do not test on animals. 

Our packaging is 100% recyclable and we use as little packaging as possible. 

Zoya only transports our products via ocean freight as it has a significantly better carbon footprint than air freight. 

We are the first and only yoga brand in the United Kingdom to exclusively partner with a carbon-neutral fulfilment warehouse. If you'd like to know more about our fulfilment practices, you can visit our partner Airbox Fulfilment.

As part of our CSR initiative, we donate to local community projects in and around London. This initiative also includes environmentally friendly charities and sustainability projects. 

If for any reason you no longer wish to keep your yoga mat or accessories after use, we recommend donating to one of the following locations: 

  • Recycling programme
  • Local charity
  • Nearby yoga studio or gym 
  • Rehabilitation centre
  • A college, school, or nursery 

Please always kindly clean your item before giving it away.

It is important to note that we strive to be as sustainable as possible, but we understand there is always more we can do. We work extremely hard as a team to come up with innovative solutions and continuously look for ways to become more environmentally friendly. We hope that as we grow we will be able to gain access to more resources and continue to better our business.
