YOGO Launches Food Trees For Poverty - One Tree Per Yoga Mat!
PRESS RELEASE FROM YOGO!
YOGO is excited to officially launch its new Food Trees for Poverty program—an international, environmental restoration and poverty-alleviation partnership that will help improve the quality of life for impoverished families in Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, Uganda, Tanzania, Belize, Honduras, and Panama.
As of August 1, 2016 - YOGO will donate one Food Tree for every yoga mat purchase accompanied with five years of supplies and sustainable agriculture farming training to families through our partner NGOs.
The program directly addresses poverty, land degradation and deforestation, hunger and environmental issues. By promoting restorative agriculture, the program presents a double-impact of healing the environment and providing long term solutions for helping poor families help themselves.
YOGO offers eco-friendly, compact travel yoga gear focused on performance and design. YOGO is the maker of the iconic YOGO Mat, a minimalist travel yoga mat made with ultra-grippy natural tree rubber. It folds up origami-style and secures to the size of a newspaper using integrated straps and buckles, which can be used to wash and hang dry the mat after practice. We aim to make yoga a more simple, convenient, and beautiful experience. YOGO is committed to greening the yoga world through intelligent advanced natural materials and low-waste design.
