The Thinksport mat is made from TPE (Thermoplastic elastomer). The advantage to TPE is that it is a closed-cell construction material. What that means is that if you sweat or get water on the mat, it will wipe clean. It reduces the chance of bacteria growing in the mat material. There are derivatives of PVC being categorized as environmentally friendly or eco materials, this is false. When selecting your mat, cheap is not necessarily better for you and the environment. We have also investigated high-end rubber solutions. We are not in favor of rubber because of the vulcanization process, which includes the use of formaldehyde.
How do I care for my Thinksport mat? Before first use, wipe with a damp cloth to obtain optimal traction. As necessary clean with a wet cloth. Mats are biodegradable to lessen their environmental impact. For maximum product life, keep out of direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
Why a yoga mat? We introduced the Thinksport mat because a majority of the mats available today are made of harmful materials such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and polymer "environmental" resin (PER). So, we first and foremost set out to find a safe material that adhered to our strict chemical policy. However, we didn't stop with just a safe material. We went on to develop our mat to be the highest performing and most comfortable mat possible. How is the Thinksport mat different? Once we identified the ideal, safe material, we started asking yoga enthusiasts (ourselves included!) what they would change about their existing mats. The #1 complaint that people had was that their existing mats were too thin and uncomfortable. So, we designed our mats to be thicker than existing mats. We were careful not to make our mat too thick so that it became difficult for balancing poses. Due to the advanced material, our thicker mat remains remarkably light. Also, our mats do not have a strong _new matî odor. While doing market research prior to the launch of our mat, we were constantly amused when people would hold the mat close to their nose, take a deep whiff, and exclaim "wow, your mat is not stinky!".
Since our company's inception, we have been focused on being socially responsible. For us this means three things:
Create safe products
Have the least impact possible on the environment in the creation, packaging, usage, and disposal of product possible.
Connect to non-profit organizations engaged in activities that help the world become a safer, healthier place
Since 2007, we have provided products for various fundraisers for diabetes, child abuse, autism, and cancer organizations, and have provided direct aid to catastrophes such as the Texas fires and Haiti. In addition, we have been proud donors to Texas4000, Healthy Child Healthy World, Environmental Working Group, and St. Jude.
Our program evolved, and through a little bit of "thinking," Thinksocial was created. We came up with Thinksocial as a way to empower consumers to choose which non-profits they feel most connected to and want to monetarily support. We call it the democratization of social responsibility.
