WHAT ABOUT YOGA DEMOCRACY’S ETHICS?

Ethics, Pricing and Charity Work?

Is Yoga Democracy Ethical?

Yes. Sister-brand to the more art-focused Yogavated, Yoga Democracy focuses on ocean preservation, utilising plastic bottles and fishing nets to make the fabrics for their womens-only brand.  They use a no-water dyeing process that cuts down on waste. They recycle and reuse 100% of their excess scrap fabric, and turn it into headbands and stuffing for dog-beds. They solely manufacture in the US, therefore reducing their carbon footprint.

The statistics provided for each garment on how many plastic bottles were diverted from landfills, how many gallons of water were saved, and how many lbs of CO2 emissions were prevented is a particularly nice touch. However, little information is provided on where/how they source their materials and in what conditions they are manufactured.

We do like that lots of their garments are rated excellent for UPF protection, and that they also donate clothing to local shelters.

Is Yoga Democracy Expensive?

Prices range from 36 USD for their ‘bamboo organic’ t-shirt, to 94 USD for bell-bottom yoga pants.

Is Yoga Democracy Involved with Charities?

Yes, they are a member of 1% For The Planet, meaning Yoga Democracy contribute 1% of their gross sales every year to non-profit organizations making a difference in communities around the world.
