Review: EcoMat Ultra

And the accompanying cleaner.

Help Gaia and your body with the EcoMat Ultra. The mat is 100% biodegradable and recyclable, and closed-cell technology prevents germs, bacteria, and odor from penetrating its surface. The Organic Yoga Mat Cleaner has a nice fresh scent and helps to both clean and preserve the surface of the mat. Or, if you’re feeling lazy, you can simply flip it over for a fresh side (just like stained couch cushions), as the mat is reversible and has a relaxing dual color combo. My favorite feature is the mat’s thick, comfy style—I’ve never done a frog pose in such comfort. The mat checks in at almost a half-inch thick and weighs only four pounds. I used the mat for yoga and Pilates, and I plan on packing it along while camping to use as a sleeping pad. $69 ($12 for the cleaner);
