Tired of grappling with your yoga mat on the way to class?
A new Irish company has created an environmentally-friendly solution.
The Neo Mat Strap (€18) is made from upcycled wetsuits.
According to Lynne, owner of The Upcycle Movement, based in Wexford, the strap is ‘very strong yet light and beautifully soft to touch, making it extremely comfortable to wear over your shoulder or cross body.’
The stretchy quality to the material means it will fit snugly to thick or thin mats. A little hidden pocket with velcro close is perfect for keeping a key or money while you practice.
The collection also includes upcycled satchels, bottle coolers, earrings and travel pouches, all made from wetsuits, which are a composite material and cannot be recycled.
And that’s not all; 10% of the profits from the Neo Collection goes to Seal Rescue Ireland – a charity that helps rescue and rehabilitate seal pups around the Irish coast.
