At Stretch Now we have taken great pleasure in developing eco-friendly yoga and meditation props that are original, high quality and specifically designed for today’s yoga practitioners and teachers. We have made a conscious decision to use organic cotton in our yoga products because of the immense benefits to our planet in contrast to the many chemicals used in conventional cotton growing.
Recently some of us at Stretch Now visited the farms where this organic cotton is grown. What impressed up so much was the knowledge that the time honoured practices that have been used for hundreds of years are still being applied. These methods include crop rotation, the use of organic fertilisers, cover crops and weed control without using any chemicals. By choosing to use organic cotton products, we are supporting organic farmers who help replenish and maintain soil productivity and longevity which results in sustaining Earth’s water ecosystems, soil fertility and health.
