We are excited to launch our Food Trees for Poverty program‚ a collaboration with carefully selected NGO Trees for the Future which helps improve the quality of life for impoverished families in African nations.
For every mat you buy, we donate and plant one tree per yoga mat in an African country including Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, Uganda and Tanzania. In addition to receiving trees and farming supplies, farmers receive five years of training to learn sustainable agriculture. With restorative farming, families can independently and permanently feed and provide income for themselves.
By promoting restorative agriculture, the program presents a double-impact of healing the environment and providing long term solutions for local employment.
Environmental benefits include an estimated one ton of sequestered carbon for each tree planted over its lifetime, and restoration of arid and degraded areas which are converted into sustainable farmland.
Since August 1st, 2016 we have funded one tree for every Yogo yoga mat purchased, along with sustainable farming training.
Your purchase of Yogo goods supports reforestation and protecting the environment!
Excited to make an impact? You can also plant an extra tree for $1.
