“I used to be rubbish” – The eco friendly Yoga leggings made from recycled plastic bottles

At Yogafurie we really care about the earth, about sustainability, and about the impact that both individuals and companies have on the health of the earth! We all as individuals try to make as many changes as we can. And we believe that companies also need to work with the environment in mind. That’s why we have created our studio with as many green practices as we possibly can, from the way we heat the studio, to the way we keep it clean! We’re always looking for ways to decrease our impact on the environment.
