Chris Willey’s passion for a sustainable practice was sparked at a young age as part of an earth-conscious family. His family taught him the importance of caring for the environment and for oneself to preserve everything that they love. Initially, he applied his passion and knowledge to build surfboards and paddle boards. His pursuit for a better, greener material led to cork – which outlasted and outperformed any other natural material and, best of all, provided a non-slip surface. Shortly after, he created the first prototype cork yoga mat, he realised that it was already a hit with yoga teachers. As he says, the rest is history. *Grab a 10% discount with my code EFYG.*
