At Yogarosa, we believe that yoga is much more than posing. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
We aim to spread our discriminative knowledge gained from our yoga practice into all the decisions we make, including the things we purchase and the ones we don't. This is why our store is small. We carry clothing and props that are mostly made in the USA, or the ethical source can be traced. We work with local businesses when possible, and only carry mats that are biodegradable. We do not sell plastic water bottles in the studio, and don't have bags for your purchase. We do have a Berkey Water Filter which we love, and have compostable water cups, but feel free to bring your own reusable bottle.
When shopping (anywhere) ask yourself the following:
- What is the impact this has in the world? (Who made it and under what conditions?)
- What effect will this have on the environment in 5, 10, or 20 years?
- Do I need it?
- Do I love it?
- If it's a gift, is it necessary? Or wasteful and useless?
