Our mission is to develop and produce 100% circular, toxin free products with a low carbon footprint.
Every part of our process – from the first design ideas to sales – is as sustainable as possible. We believe that we all need to work together to ensure a good future for our children and grandchildren.
The escalating impacts of climate change and pollution are one of the most pressing global challenges of our time. Facing a planet in crisis, we have to undertake actions now to achieve the correct balance between our own consumption, the on-hand resources and the waste linked to production and consumption. Within the yoga community Kurma is actively shaping a truly sustainable future for ourselves and generations to come.
The yoga industry and its consumers are co-responsible for the generation of solid waste in general, and plastic waste in particular. Even though there is hardly any data to quantify the exact yoga-related waste worldwide, one thing seems beyond doubt: With an estimated 300 million yoga practitioners, millions of mats and props are disposed of each year. They are usually burned in an incinerator, landfilled or, at worst, dumped illegally.
