Calmia & The Environment

Calmia has always been passionate about caring for and respecting the environment as well as honouring the countries and traditions, which inspired our vision.


Eco-Friendly Products & Production
Our goal is for all our yoga and wellness products to be non-toxic and sustainable and to minimize their impact on the environment.


To date, we have numerous eco-friendly yoga accessories in our range including yoga mats made from 6P Free PVC, which means they are free of the 6 most harmful phthalates, eco-friendly TPE and natural rubber. Our natural rubber mats are made from biodegradable, non-Amazon harvested, natural tree rubber with non-toxic foaming agents and non-AZO dyes. Our light-weight travel mats are produced from a microfiber yarn that is made from bamboo charcoal and all of our foam massage rollers are made from recycled, eco-friendly EVA foam using non-AZO dyes.


The majority of our yoga clothing is manufactured in Turkey and is made from natural fibers such as cotton, wool and viscose, which are fully biodegradable, using natural dyes and a manufacturing process that tightly controls how the waste products are disposed of. We are currently working towards using more organic cotton and other eco-friendly fabrics for our low impact yoga clothing as we move forward with our new ranges.


We also produce clothing for more active forms of yoga in man-made fabrics that have sweat wicking performance properties. The fabrics and manufacturing processes used to produce these garments are tightly controlled to ensure that they comply with all environmental regulatory standards.


It is our policy to only work with fabric manufacturers that do not release waste products into the environment.


Caring for our planet
As a company, we try to minimize the effects our business has on the environment. Here are a few of the things we do:

  • The majority of our products are delivered by sea freight instead of air to cut down our carbon footprint
  • We strive to use non-toxic, biodegradable materials and dyes in our products wherever possible
  • We try to use as little unnecessary packaging as possible for our products, so there is less to be disposed of
  • All of the packaging we do use is produced from recycled materials and can be recycled once finished with
  • We work closely with our suppliers and factories to recycle as much of our waste as possible
  • We are aiming to have all of our packaging produced from sustainably managed non-Amazon forest sources
  • Our natural rubber mats are made from biodegradable, non-Amazon harvested, natural tree rubber with non-toxic foaming agents and non-AZO dyes
  • We print as little as possible and recycle all of our waste at our head office in London

As we move forward and develop, we are constantly reviewing our manufacturing processes and business practices to see how we can improve and further reduce our impact on the planet that has given us everything we have and to play our part in preserving it for future generations.
